    People Are Saying Spotify Wrapped Is "Calling Everyone Gay," And It's Actually Hilarious

    If you or a loved one was called "gay" by Spotify Wrapped, you may be entitled to hilarious social media recognition.

    It's that time of the year again, when Spotify Wrapped takes over our social media.

    This year hit differently when Spotify introduced "Sound Towns," which told everyone what city had similar music tastes to theirs, and almost everybody got one of three US cities: Berkeley, California; Cambridge, Massachusetts; or Burlington, Vermont.

    When it was jokingly pointed out that getting one of these three cities means "you're gay," I was ready to be offended, but then I got Berkeley. As a proud bisexual person, I was like, "Okay, maybe you right."

    Folks took the joke further and pointed out that beyond the "Sound Towns," Spotify had a dozen different ways of basically calling everyone gay, and they're too hilarious not to mention.

    Perhaps you received a personal message where they explicitly say the "worst part of having Boygenius in your Spotify Wrapped" is "telling your family you're gay."

    Or maybe you got a shoutout from Troye Sivan, which means you managed to stream his month-old queer-forward album more than anything else for the entire year.
