With all the anti-trans and anti-queer legislation happening over the United States, this song comes at an important time. Queer kids need to know they aren’t alone and that they have support from those in their community. Kevin Erskine beautifully wrote “A Song for Queer Kids” with that in mind. The lyrics share everything a queer youth wants to hear when faced with a lack of support from family or others in their lives. The vocal tone and delivery is heartfelt and pairs perfectly with the acoustic guitar. I wish this song was around when I was a queer kid. Listen on Spotify and Apple Music.
