Kesha, St. Vincent, Bob Dylan Release LGBTQ-Affirmative 'Universal Love'
LGBTQ lovers have been doing it everywhere on their own since the beginning of time — changing pronouns in their favorite songs for the perfect serenade to their partner. Now a group of artists has taken this on themselves in the form of creating a new LGBTQ-affirmative EP, Universal Love.
