Country Queer is all about fostering community among LGBTQ+ fans and creators of country music. We believe that the culture of country music needs to change, and that change happens by lifting up LGBTQ+ voices. We stand in solidarity with all marginalized voices in country music. We think you deserve to feel free to enjoy the music you love while being completely and beautifully yourself.

All welcome!
