Spotify Launches ‘GLOW’ – New Equity Program Celebrating & Amplifying LGBTQIA+ Artists, Creators & Community

Music and culture have long been shaped by the LGBTQIA+ community: on stage, behind the scenes, and in culture overall.

Committed to using the power of Spotify’s platform to elevate, uplift and spotlight voices that have been historically marginalized, we’re launching GLOW – a new global music program developed to celebrate the LGBTQIA+ community.

Supported by the Creator Equity Fund – Spotify’s commitment to fostering equity in the audio space – GLOW will join sister programs like EQUAL and Frequency. Their commitment to the LGBTQIA+ community will amplify voices and stories through:

  • The GLOW Hub, a dedicated space on Spotify to highlight audio offerings of LGBTQIA+ voices for queer and ally users.
  • Global Flagship Playlist, GLOW, which will be refreshed monthly and highlight tracks by LGBTQIA+ artists.
  • A 360 program providing editorial and partnership capabilities, marketing support, and charitable components.

To launch GLOW, they’re spotlighting LGBTQIA+ artists including: Arlo Parks, Bruses, Jean Seizure, Joesef, Leland, Liniker, Natalia Lacunza, Pabllo Vittar, Sam Smith, Tove Lo  and Villano Antillano.
