Summer of Queer Music: The Merch Needed To Celebrate LGBTQ+ Artists & Allies
From tour-inspired wear to official merchandise, here’s how to celebrate your favorite artists.
This is the summer of queer music. We previously recommended our favorite albums to celebrate Pride Month, but this time we wanted to focus on the merchandise that helps us celebrate our favorite LGBTQ+ artists and allies. We’re recommending Beyoncé merch that we want to wear when listening to Renaissance, as well as some tour-ready outfits inspired by the album. From other official merchandise to inspired collectibles of your favorite artists, your summer of music will be complete.
Below you’ll find a selection of music merch from Amazon that can help you celebrate your favorite artists. Check them out and celebrate queer music this summer and all year round.
The editors of equalpride who publish this site selected these products and equalpride may earn a small affiliate share if you purchase which helps push our voice to more LGBTQ+ and increase print magazines to counter banned printed books.
Beyoncé Renaissance World Tour Merch
We're huge fans of Renaissance, Beyoncé's latest studio album that has strong queer roots in its creation. But what we really love is how queer her tour has been, which makes for some incredible merch to adorn ourselves with while listening to this groundbreaking album. What we're loving right now is this Beyoncé Official Renaissance World Tour Disco Cowboy Hat T-shirt featuring the queen herself riding a horse in beautiful detail. On the back of the shirt lists every city of the Renaissance World Tour and it comes in a unisex fit so everyone can wear the t-shirt.
Although this is the summer of queer music, that doesn't mean we can't account for some less than sunny weather, meaning a sweatshirt as the perfect item of clothing to wrap yourself up in and listen to some music. This Beyoncé Official Renaissance World Tour Billboard Crewneck Sweatshirt is perfectly oversized to do just that, featuring Beyoncé on her horse on some high-in-the-sky scaffolding.
There's a difference between jamming out to your favorite albums at home and jamming out to the actual artist on stage when seeing them on tour. For all those looking to see Beyoncé and her Renaissance World Tour, there are some major accessories and clothing items that can help you get the Renaissance look. First up is this Disco Ball Cowboy Hat that looks just like the one Beyoncé is shown wearing on her official merch. Attend the tour in style with this cowboy hat that shines bright like the star herself on stage.
In menswear, this Rhinestone Sheer Mesh Short Sleeve Clubwear Party T-Shirt features shining rhinestones on a black mesh shirt that perfectly embodies the style of Renaissance. Especially with a clubwear-inspired look, paying homage to the album's queer roots goes together with this t-shirt.
And if you're looking for the perfect bottoms to wear to a Beyoncé tour, you have to go with short and sparkly. These Sequined Rave Shorts for Women are perfect clubwear and perfect tour-inspired wear to see the star of the show perform. Black with sparkles, these high-waist shorts are performance-ready. If you're looking for some shorts that match that disco ball cowboy hat, then look no further than these Women's Sequin Tassel Skirts that sparkle with tasseled rhinestones in silver.
There are a lot of great artists touring and sharing their music with audiences, and we're looking at some of the best merch to celebrate them with. One of the biggest LGBTQ+ artists is Lady Gaga, and Mother Monster is currently promoting Chromatica until she delights us with some more of her music. This Official Lady Gaga Chromatica Cover Sweatshirt is unisex and perfect for everyone looking to celebrate Gaga, with the album art prominently displayed on front. "GAGA" adorns the back in big, bright pink letters.
Lil Nas X is a groundbreaking LGBTQ+ musician, offering representation in music that is seldom seen by a rap and hip-hop artist. As one of the hottest LGBTQ+ celebrities in the music industry, it's important to celebrate the incredible music that Lil Nas X has created for the community. With this Lil Nas X Official Lightning T-Shirt, you can show off your love for the artist with its red lightning design.
Another artist who has done a lot for the LGBTQ+ community is Rosalia, and although this t-shirt isn't official merchandise, it still shows how you can be Rosalia's number one fan. Available in multiple colors, the Rosalia Supporter Number 1 Biggest Fan T-shirt is perfect for going out on tour and enjoying the music of a great ally to the community.
Young Miko makes music for the LGBTQ+ community. With their queer, latinx identity, Young Miko offers great representation within the music industry. And this Young Miko Tour 2023 Vintage Style Sweatshirt offers a fantastic look when dancing to their absolutely queer music.
Not all tour merchandise are clothing items. There are a lot of accessories to buy to enjoy that spruce up your look or your space with the love you have for one of your favorite artists.

Featuring all of her albums on one blanket, this throw blanket can turn any space into a dedication to one of the biggest stars of all time.
If you're a fan of Phoebe Bridgers or boygenius, then this spooky ghost bracelet inspired by the artist makes for a perfect accessory to wear or give as a gift. The queer artist has a love for all thinks spooky and ghostlike, and this I Know The End Bracelet is no exception.
Although not official Harry Styles merch, this necklace features a gold "H" and a gold house to represent Harry's House, the ally's latest studio album.
