Quotes from the interview/article:
With Tegan and Sara putting a same-sex twist on love songs, Quin reckons pop music is reconnecting with the gender-bending 80s superstars she grew up with: David Bowie, Prince, Kate Bush, Annie Lennox, Madonna and George Michael.

“Whether people were gay or not, there was a real queer vibe to a lot of the music from that era,” she says.

While grunge and alt-rock reinforced more rigid heterosexual lines in the 90s and beyond, Quin sees current stars such as Sam Smith, Adam Lambert and Perth’s own Troye Sivan as breaking down that divide once again.

“There’s a lot of guys really trailblazing in the pop world,” Quin says. “I don’t see a lot of girls, so I’m hoping we can be part of that movement.”
