Music on the Safe Schools Coalition Website
Last updated on 01/01/15. If you know of errors please click here to let us know.

Teachers can use this music as part of lessons. Youth, parents, allies can play them as mirrors to reflect their own feelings or tools for expressing pride, channeling anger or healing wounds.

These songs are posted on this page alphabetically by the name of the band or songwriter/singer, and
 are posted on the SSC website with permission, and with our thanks.

Please help us find music that captures what the LGBTQ safe schools movement is all about!!! YOU CAN HELP US BY PROPOSING SONGS!! Ask your students and colleagues and friends to do it too. If you are an artist or know an artist, we especially want to hear from you. We want to eventually have pieces from all generations and all genres. Go here to propose a song.
