When you’ve followed an artist long enough, you can’t help feeling a sense of pride with each album release. I’ve been a fan of Amina Shareef Ali for <a href="">almost ten years</a> and it’s a thrill to see (or, I guess, hear) how she’s blossomed on her latest, <em>In The Dark (Awake Of Course), Vol. 2</em>. A follow-up to her 2021 album, <em>Vol. 2</em> is more expansive, even more gut-wrenching, but also confidently, authentically, Amina.

Gay Ole Opry

Why queer country music? Because sometimes you love a culture that doesn’t love you back. And when everyone came to the first Gay Ole Opry in April of 2011 in all their country finery, we knew we weren’t alone. We do it because we love the music and want to build a community to support queer country musicians.
