5 Great LGBT Musicians

Gay marriage is now legal wooo! To me this is something that, yes should have happened ages ago, but that is progress towards a fully equal world. To celebrate here are 5 of my favourite LGBT musicians!

5. Troye Sivan
Known more for his YouTube vlogs, Troye Sivan came out as gay last year in an emotional vlog. Since then he's been carrying on the way he's always been but a bit more open which is great. He also writes songs which he regularly posts online.

4. Jake Shears
Frontman of the Scissor Sisters. Jake Shears works regularly with Kylie Minogue writing her material such as "I Believe In You" and "Too Much". Shears says gay celebrities "have the responsibility to come out". Shears has been with his partner Chris Moukarbel since 2004.

3. Ricky Wilson (The B-52s not Kaiser Chiefs)
Ricky Wilson was an American musician and a member of The B-52s famous for their hits "Rock Lobster" and "Love Shack". He died in 1985 at the age of 32 due to AIDS and kept his illness a secret from the band. His sister Cindy Wilson is still a member of The B-52s.

2. Sia Furler
Sia Furler is bisexual. She is probably best known for her vocals on David Guetta's "Titanium". Sia has written songs for several great musicians such as Christina Aguilera, Britney Spears and Artist of the Month Shakira. Listen to her new song "Chandeliar" here.

1. Fergie
Fergie is also bisexual and a member of The Black Eyed Peas alongside She came out in 2009 in an interview with The Sun. She is also known for her solo album "The Dutchess".
