This site looks at “I Want To Break Free” by Queen and “PYNK” by Janelle Monáe. Throughout the site, I consider each songs’ hollow sonic musical space and sexualized campy visuals to criticize cultural norms of heterosexuality and traditional perceptions of gender in each artists’ respective decade. Additionally, “I Want To Break Free” and “PYNK” use a homogeneous representation of gender to normalize non-heterosexual images and create a visual space of community and acceptance. While “I Want To Break Free” was released in 1984, and “PYNK” was released in 2018, the messages of acceptance and freedom from these norms of heterosexuality and gender are timeless and continue to be relevant today.
