LGBTQ* Music You Should Know
Melissa Etheridge — “Tuesday Morning”
You can’t erase this -
You can’t pretend this is not the truth.
Even though he could not marry
Or teach your children in our schools
Because who he wants to love
Is breaking your (G)od’s rules
He stood up on a Tuesday morning
Melissa Etheridge wrote “Tuesday Morning” to pay respect and give recognition to the LGBTQ* individuals involved in the events of September 11th. The song pays special tribute to Mark Bingham, a rugby player from San Francisco, who along with others overpowered the hijackers on Flight 93.
