Pride Out Loud with Amazon Influencers highlights and celebrates LGBTQIA+ creators in the Amazon Influencer program. The experience showcases imagery and quotes from creators sharing what Pride means to them and links to each influencer’s Pride essentials.
To kick off Pride in style, Amazon Music revealed a brand-new Amazon Original cover of Kate Bush’s iconic single, “Running Up That Hill,” from international pop sensation Kim Petras. Appearing on PROUD, Amazon Music’s global playlist celebrating new music from LGBTQIA+ artists 365 days of the year, the song finds Petras paying homage to the pop legend, delivering a powerful new cover of one of pop’s cornerstone songs.
“I have always been obsessed with ‘Running up that Hill,'” said Petras. “It means so much and it’s so elusive. You can definitely decide what you want it to mean. For me, it’s about equality.”
