Que Viva La Joteria: Pride Month Music Mix

DJ Sizzle Fantastic has cooked up a new mix for Pride Month 2019, honoring Marsha P. Johnson and Sylvia Rivera who paved the way for the present day Queer liberation movement. These songs span five decades of beloved Queer club bangers, documenting Queer resilience and joy. There is no PRIDE for some of us, if there is no PRIDE for ALL OF US. Que Viva La Joteria!
