publish date: 2017-06-16
Brooke Candy has long been an advocate for those who feel like they don’t quite fit in. With songs that call for empowerment and sexual liberation, Brooke Candy makes unfiltered music for the voiceless -- much like her recent single “Living Out Loud,” which features pop icon Sia, where she triumphantly sings, "I gotta live out loud because it's the only way I know how."
As a part of ’s 30 Days of Pride, the outspoken artist shared some of her favorite visual artists, recording artists and designers who have touched her life and the LGBTQ community in some way.

Seth Bogart of Hunx & His PunksHe’s one of those people that is so cool, and I’ve always looked to him. His best friend is named Peggy Nolan, and their whole crew, they’re just so uber-cool, and they just ooze creativity. The art that they make is so uniquely theirs and it’s so cool to see because I think we are living in a time where everything is recycled and a lot of the visuals that we see, we’ve seen before and it’s really cool to see someone create from such a pure, strange place.”
