queer people have been pioneering electronic music literally since its inception
a trans woman popularized moog synths. gay black men invented house music. trans women created vaporwave and PC music

@dankwraith I feel like queer folk (and queer folk of color, in particular) have been instrumental in the development of not just electronica but every genre of music that's worth a damn for the last 200 years or so.
