Pride Month 2024: Be Proud to Say You Are 'Born This Way'


Pride Month 2024

In commemoration of Pride Month 2024, Bruton proudly presents Pride: Born This Way, a twelve-track album featuring music from top LGBTQ artists in various genres that celebrates the beauty and power of being loud and proud of who you are.


Music like this, while relevant for all times, is especially critical in today's climate when individuality and personal choices are questioned and judged. Rightfully so, artists are leading the way not only in representation but also in raising their voices to shine a light on the importance of personal empowerment and the issues that curtail the freedom to be who you want to be.
