Rachel Blaquière, who has previously composed for a feature on Queerativity, Either/Or, has returned to showcase an incredible piece that reflects on famous classical composers who we now know to have been part of the LGBTQ+ Community.
Lola Fierce is a Glasgow-based Drag Artist with a newly released single, “Born Again”. It is concerned with reminiscing about the past, the happiness you felt, and wishing you could just go back to live it all over again. Her song covers how Lola felt during lockdown; yearning to be making some new memories! The music video covers a range of themes – most of which Lola feels are relatable to those in the LGBTQ+ community.
”I hope everyone really enjoys and loves the video just as much as I do. It definitely makes me feel proud and happy to be a queer person.“
You can check out more of Lola’s work, and her single “Born Again”, by heading to her Artist Profile.
Niccolò Maccaferri’s debut single “Never See Me Cry” is a beautiful piece that subtly reflects on the difficulties faced when your sexuality does not adhere to society’s “norm”. Niccolò released this song to represent the infinite strength that we can find in ourselves when everything seems to fall apart.

Either/Or: A video performance that tackles binary gender identities and how this impacts an individual. This beautiful piece was created and performed by Morgan Black, and the soundtrack composed and performed by Rachel Blaquière.
Hannah McGregor’s original song “She”, is a beautiful piece that blends self-image and insecurities, from a WLW perspective. Songs and art like this are extremely important in our culture. They help younger people feel less alienated by their attractions and feelings, and generally provide more content that LGBTQ+ folks can relate to.
