Out in Tech New York | Does My Music Like Me Back?

October 19, 2016 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Does my music like me back?


 


Join us on Wednesday, October 19th at Spotify New York for a panel on the intersection of music, technology, and the LGBT movement – along with a special performance.


 


Is homophobia still permeating the music business? How are streaming platforms changing the game for queer artists?


 


Our panelists, ranging from singer/songwriters to journalists, will take a deeper look at music’s social footprint.
