Sugartruck Recordings
San Francisco-based record label founded by Juba Kalamka (aka Pointfivefag) specializing in Homohop, Spokenweird and other cultural missives from Black LGBT folk and their friends and allies. Their website includes information on current releases as well as photos, lyrics, links and artist resources.

Da Dis List
Da Dis List is an archive of hip-hop/rap songs with anti-gay lyrical content, as compiled by members of the Phat Family mailing list, including everything from casual insults such as "faggot" or "dyke" to songs which openly advocate violence against LGBT people. It is intended not as a blacklist or censorship, but rather as a resource to inform discussion of issues of gender and sexual identity in hip-hop.
