In June 2023, SOCAN honours the contributions and impact of Black music creators, Indigenous peoples, and the LGBTQ2S+ community, all of whom have played important roles in shaping the history, culture, and heritage of our country, and the world.

In recognition of Black Music Month, Pride Month, and National Indigenous History Month and National Indigenous Peoples Day (June 21), SOCAN will share both new and recent feature stories, profiles, and personal columns of our members from these vibrant, crucial communities.

We’ll continue to support the contributions of BIPOC and LGBTQ2S+ peoples in Words & Music, and on our social media channels. Please stay tuned for more this month – and every month.
