This scoop is from https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-news/lovelytheband-fights-for-lgbtq-rights-in-maybe-im-afraid-video-824403/
The Rolling Stone is a monthly magazine. It was founded in San Francisco in 1967, and consider to be one of the most reliable sources of music news. 
This video is dealing with an important subject that many people, (men and women) are struggling with. I think that "Lovelytheband" is doing the right thing by releasing a video telling a story about a man that all his life has been struggling with his sexuality. It will help a lot of young people and maybe even kids to talk about their issues and leave a truthful life. 
Thank you, Lovelytheband.

Trey Pearson's Rebirth as a Gay Christian Rocker | LGBTQ COMMUNITY IN THE MUSIC industry | Scoop.it
How a gay Christian rocker created a new life after Christian radio rejected him.
Gitit Druyan's insight:
The source is psmag.com 
This is an American magazine that reports on issues of social and environmental justice. The reporting is highly factual, and it is a trustworthy source. 
This article is about country singer Trey Pearson. He is a gay Christian rocker who was rejected by Christian Radio. Pearson grew up in a Christian family and spent time at the church. His band was charting under the Christian Rock genre. In 2015, he came out, after living a straight life for many years. He started voicing his support of the LGBTQ community. Ever since coming out publicly, Christian Radio will not feature any of his new songs, but now he has a new audience and many new venues he performs at. 
There is hope!

Hayley Kiyoko, Troye Sivan, and the New Age of Queer Pop

Hayley Kiyoko, Troye Sivan, and the New Age of Queer Pop | LGBTQ COMMUNITY IN THE MUSIC industry | Scoop.it
The next generation of LGBTQ pop artists knows what it stands for. And when you’re producing songs people have been waiting a long time to hear, word spreads fast.
Gitit Druyan's insight:
This article is from https://www.wired.com/story/queer-pop-revolution/ ;
This website is an online magazine, which is factually high due to proper sourcing. 
The first part of the article talks about Hayley Kiyoko criticize Rita Ora's song, "Girls", that "was intended as a queer liberation anthem,"  to be one-sided and represent just women and not the whole LGBTQ community. Kiyoko days: "A song like this just fuels the male gaze while marginalizing the idea of women loving women." 
The next part of the article is about Frank Ocean. In his album, he talks about the fact that his first love had been a man. He says h feels he gets many opportunities since he had joined the LBGTQ community. 
Another part of the article is about "k.d. langs, George Michaels, Melissa Etheridges, Sam Smiths, Adam Lamberts, Tegans, and Saras and making their identities a part of the conversation about their music." They talk about how great it is to work with another queer. Their music is their platform to talk about their gender choices. There are many more artists that consider themselves queer.

2019 Grammy Awards: LGBTQ women shine at 61st annual music event

2019 Grammy Awards: LGBTQ women shine at 61st annual music event | LGBTQ COMMUNITY IN THE MUSIC industry | Scoop.it
Brandi Carlile, Lady Gaga, St. Vincent and Janelle Monáe were among those who performed or were honored at the awards event.
Gitit Druyan's insight:
nbcnew.com is a reputable news website that covers not just to the music industry news, but all news categories.  
This article shows that many LGBTQ artists took part in the Grammy's this year. Lady Gaga, Carlile, St. Vincent, Janelle Monáe, and more either performed on the stage of the Grammy's or won one. This is a very big step for the LBGTQ community and artists for years to come. It is a sign that our society is becoming more accepting of and open to this community.  Having said that, there is still a lot to be done in this matter, and we as a human race are just at the beginning of the path to social justice and freedom.

These LGBTQ Artists Are Pioneers In The Music Industry

These LGBTQ Artists Are Pioneers In The Music Industry | LGBTQ COMMUNITY IN THE MUSIC industry | Scoop.it
From '80s icons to pop powerhouses of today, these individuals have not only paved the way for similar musicians to authentically present themselves — they've also furthered the gay rights movement through their drive and their passion.
Gitit Druyan's insight:
The source is https://www.idolator.com/7682015/these-lgbtq-artists-are-pioneers-in-the-music-industry
By www.wenotify.net the trustworthiness and reputation is 90%  approval. 
Freddie Mercury, Elton John, David Bowie, Sam Smith, just to name a few, are all pioneers in the LGBTQ community, by being open about their sexuality, their problems, and obstacles they have to cope with. Each and every one of them has introduced their own unique story.  For example, Sam Smith says: “People forget but no one learns about gay history in school. Nothing. So I didn’t know anything about my history as a gay man and then words like ‘spokesperson’ are being thrown at me when I’ve just brought out my first album." 
It is clear how confused he was while growing up. 
Freddi Mercury was diagnosed with HIV in 1987, and was one of the first artists to openly speak on the subject of his disease and sexuality. At the time, nobody knew anything about HIV. People were afraid just to hear the name. With that said, although we have made progress in acceptance, understanding, and open-mindedness, there are many issues still present today. we, as a society, still have progress to make in the LGBTQ community.
