This month on QMH I have a special show I call Gay-o de Mayo, on which I'm playing three hours
of songs by LGBT artists sung in Spanish. No, I don't speak Spanish but hey, I'm bringing you
the music anyway. So, enjoy while I gamely butcher the pronunciation of the artist names and titles.

Some comments: I compiled this list from what I had in my own collection, plus suggestions from a
number of folks who responded to a request on my Facebook wall. (Thank you John Nechman,
Angie Moreno and many others). Thanks to Margaret Frimoth in Oregon for sending me the
Irene Farrera sound file; just did not want to leave that song out. And Sara Fernandez may not
want to own up to it (depending on how well I did), but she helped guide me on pronunciation,
though I am a gringo from Ohio so she did not have much to work with. For a number of titles
I just found them by google research, so there may be some that are not actually by LGBT artists,
though they do deal with gay subject matter....it was hard to tell the difference in the descriptions.
