Siena Liggins is an amazing singer-songwriter whose voice is like summer in pop-song form. Her music will most definitely reel you in. Oh, and the "Flowerbomb" music video is super cute.

FLETCHER (aka Cari Fletcher) is a singer-songwriter who identifies as queer. Her style is a hybrid of pop and dance (so basically super fun to bop to). She has a shit load of queer music videos as well, so go check them out ASAP.

5. "Girls Like Girls" by Hayley Kiyoko

Okay, this one is kind of obvious, but you can't make a queer women playlist and not include any Hayley Kiyojo (aka Lesbian Jesus). This song has a great chorus and is perfect for belting in the privacy of your shower (or anywhere, really).

6. "Sick of Losing Soulmates" by Dodie

Ah, Dodie... The epitome of adorable soft acoustic lesbian music (that's a genre, right?). This song in particular is one of my favorite queer songs, probably ever. All of her music is so pretty and chill. Go listen!

7. "1950" by King Princess

Hello, indie queers! Allow me to introduce you to legend, icon, and star — King Princess. Her music is indie-pop and is super chill and catchy. You can thank me later.

8. "Twilight Zone" by Mila Jam

Mila Jam is taking some serious steps in changing the world with her music and activism! These jams have a message, so listen closely while you're dancing!

9. "girls" by girl in red

girl in red (aka Marie Ulven Ringheim) is a really cool lesbian singer-songwriter. Her style is bedroom pop and has super retro vibes.

10. "What I Need" by Hayley Kiyoko

Oh, look – more Lesbian Jesus! Except this time, it's featuring Kehlani! This song is fun, upbeat, and made me realize that I'm literally in love with both of them.

11. "Apologize" (featuring OMVR) by Matilda

For those who don't know, Matilda is a Norwegian pop singer. "Apologize" is my favorite song of hers, although she has a bunch of goodies that you should also check out. Side note: this music video makes me want to move to Europe, get a girlfriend, and go to coffee shops with her.

12. "Casings" by Ethel Cain

Based in Florida, Ethel Cain has some seriously moody tunes. For anyone who likes old-school Lana Del Rey (like... when she was still Lizzy Grant) or Nicole Dollanganger, you're in for a treat!

13. "Bags" by Clairo

View this video on YouTube

Ah, Clairo — our favorite not-straight (her words, not mine). All her music is super pretty and relaxing, and she has a beautiful voice. Also, check out her songs "Sofia" and "Pretty Girl."

14. "It's Okay To Cry" by SOPHIE

View this video on YouTube

SOPHIE is a wildly talented producer and popstar. You've heard her before on music by Charli XCX, MØ, Kim Petras, and more. If you haven't listened to her music, what are you waiting for? It's a trip!

15. And lastly, "Strangers" (featuring Lauren Jauregui) by Halsey

View this video on YouTube

What a power duo! These two bi-cons, Halsey and Lauren Jauregui, teamed up to give all the queers literal life. They both have great voices, and this song is just *chef's kiss*.
