    Subscribe to the Bops 4 Gays Spotify playlist to keep up to date with new music from LGBTQ (and adjacent) artists.

    "Bodies " MUNA, The KnocksTalk about a power duo.

    MUNA and The Knocks combined their queer powers on the breezily nostalgic single "Bodies," an explosive yearning for summers past made all too appropriate of an anthem while we're still on lockdown.

    Almost instantly, it took on another meaning.

    It became about missing well, everything.

    Normal life had been suspended.

    We hit pause.

    We began to miss the unceasing togetherness of touring.

    We missed one another.

    The song became about the helplessness and loneliness inherent to this peculiar, terrifying era.

    We decided to capture that loneliness by shooting a one shot video of Katie masked up, rollerblading in slow motion early in the morning on a quiet street in Pasadena in early May.

    Barclays Close Christian Charity Bank Account Offering LGBT Conversion Therapy

    It follows criticism from LGBT activists, who say the bank the lead sponsor of Pride in London for several years was hypocritical.

    They argued supporting LGBT people with one hand while giving services to a charity that offers LGBT conversion therapy, is wrong.
