25 LGBTQ Love Songs to Help You Feel the Romance This Valentine’s Day

Mr. Nimbus | 02/08/2024

From Lil Nas X to Kehlani, these passion-tinged tracks will get you feeling the love just in time for the holiday.

There are few topics as frequently touched on in popular music as love — whether through tender ballads, bombastic anthems or heartbreaking torch songs, romance is always in the air when it comes to music. After all, what feeling could be more universal than the concept of love?

Yet even with a dearth of tracks dedicated to infatuation, songs about explicitly queer love have been historically rarer than their straight counterparts. For decades of music, finding LGBTQ+ artists singing about their relationships was practically impossible, while the use of same-sex pronouns in love songs was even rarer.

But as society and cultural conversations around sexuality and gender progressed, so, too, did the frequency of romantic depictions of queerness in music. With A-list LGBTQ+ artists like Lil Nas X, Kehlani, Janelle Monáe, Troye Sivan and dozens more taking up their rightful space in the modern pantheon of pop music, queer folks around the world no longer have to make do with listening to love songs written without them in mind.

So, if you’re looking to feel the love with some queer-affirming music this year, then we have got you covered. With Valentine’s Day 2024 just around the corner, Billboard decided to take a look back at 25 love songs from LGBTQ+ artists that were created with the community in mind. There’s a little something for everyone here — spanning genres from pop to rock and beyond, these songs offer as many different flavors for the season of love as one could hope for.
