As queer folks, it can be hard to find music that resonates with our experiences of crushing and intimacy. Thanks to the folks operating the Tumblr directory “Girls and Nonbinary Folks in Music,” my quest was a lot easier. After searching through this treasure trove of mostly independent artists, I made this mixtape full of tunes that explore the emotional wilderness of crushes. It includes women, nonbinary folks, and queer artists, with music ranging from shoegaze to hip-hop to pop punk (because crushes transcend genres, duh).
