Celebrating Pride: For the Community, By the Community features tracks from India Jordan, Sherelle, Manuka Honey, Riva and more.

London collectives Daytimers and Big Dyke Energy have teamed up for an all-queer charity compilation called Celebrating Pride: For the Community, By the Community.

Sherelle, India Jordan and Manuka Honey are among the artists who have contributed music to the new 8-track compilation. No Nation, Darama, FAFF, Enayet, Walthamstow Dogs and Riva have also contributed to the collaborative project.

Celebrating Pride: For the Community, By the Community also features a pair of poems that explore trans liberation and pride and queerness in the diaspora respectively. All profits from the sale of the compilation will be donated to two LGBTQIA charities: Mermaids and the Human Dignity Trust.

The project was announced today (6 October), with Daytimers and Big Dyke Energy unveiling India Jordan’s contribution, Balby Bastard, alongside the release announcement. Listen to the track below.
