Scissor Sisters and MNDR are reclaiming the queer dance floor in memory of last year's tragic breach of Orlando's LGBTQ safe space, Pulse Nightclub. Their new single, "SWERLK"—a combination of twerk, twirl, werk, swerve and swirl—is a proud declaration of queer power, choosing to remember the Pulse victims in a celebratory light on the shooting's one-year anniversary.
All record sales and streaming royalties from "SWERLK" will be donated directly to the Contigo Fund, which developed in response to the Orlando shootings. According to the fund's website, Contigo "offers financial support to organizations working to heal, educate and empower LGBTQ and Latinx individuals, immigrants and people of color, as well as those working to end all forms of bigotry in Central Florida."
Scissor Sisters member Jake Shears said he's "glad to support such a great cause," and hopes this music "can help bring people together and provide support for the LGBT Latinx community in Orlando." Baby Daddy added that "SWERLK" is their way to honor "the people and culture that allowed us to escape and be ourselves."
