OCTOBER 14: Mary Lambert’s “Heart on My Sleeve” album is released (2014)
On this day in 2014, Mary
Lambert’s Heart on My Sleeve album first hit shelves. The lesbian singer and
songwriter’s debut album contained the hit “She Keeps Me Warm.”

Mary Lambert first got her start
in the world of slam poetry, representing Seattle, Washington – not far from
her hometown of Everett, Washington – in the 2008 Brave New Voices
International Poetry Competition. In 2012, she reached the mainstream’s radar
by co-writing and providing vocals for the song “Same Love” by Macklemore and Ryan
Lewis. As a lesbian, she was the only LGBT person to work on the track.
Adapting the success of her verse
from “Same Love” into her own independent material, Mary wrote “She Keeps Me Warm,” which became the
first single of her Heart on My Sleeve album in January of 2014. The album as a
whole was released on October 14, 2014 to a positive reception. The songs “She
Keeps Me Warm” and “Secrets” were highlights of the album, giving wlw
everywhere new explicitly gay tunes to bop to. Mary is currently working on her second album, but until then, the lyric “I can’t think straight, I’m so gay” from “Secrets” will remain our mantra.

Loving this music video! One of my fave parts about this video is actually in the description box itself.
“My assistant, Nadia, actually came up with the concept for the video while we were at a barcade- she suggested the line “I probably should know your name” could be in reference to an arcade’s HIGH SCORE screen, and that’s when the music video baby was born. I really wanted the premise to be something sexy and quirky and fun, and I think Erix Arocha really knocked it out of the park. The main thing I kept circling back to when I started conceptualizing the video was that it needed to be trans-inclusive. I wanted to do a rib off of Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” music video, but nerdier and queer as hell. I have so many beautiful and talented friends and I knew casting would be a breeze. Jacob Tobia, Gabi Fresh, Firda Herryandhy, and Hazel Jade were brilliant and sexy and playful in each of their characters- I feel super lucky to know them. I met Sara Ramirez at a fundraiser for homeless LGBT youth this last year, and we immediately hit it off. When the concept for the video began developing, Sara was the first person I thought of. She was unbelievably generous with her time, energy, and enthusiasm for the video. As I was conceptualizing the video, I had just read Ready Player One, which is an amazing novel by Ernest Cline. It’s packed with 80s references and a ton of video game knowledge, so I knew I wanted the premise to be surrounding this idea that a bunch of killer babes were great at video games. Together, each character and I came up with a bunch of roller-derby-esque names, under the premise that each character had their own backstory and strength.”
