Special version in support of Ukraine and especially its LGBTQIA+ community. Elevate Me [Lanah's Solidarnist' Ukrayina Dub] is from the film Legendary Children [All of Them Queer].

Original version Elevate Me {Lanah's Get Lesbianated Bus Stop Dub) taken from Legendary Children [All Of Them Queer] due out late 2023 from Peccadillo Pictures), a new film tracking the original human rights pioneers who brought Pride to Europe in 1972 as Pride 50 unfolded around them. What nobody expected was a bizarrely catchy, totally whack dance track...

Led by iconic Epicene pop star and entertainer LANAH P and featuring rock star TOM ROBINSON, international human rights icon PETER TATCHELL and US activist STUART MILK. Get Lesbianated is a ballroom strut like you won’t ever have quite seen before… Internationally acclaimed ‘Superstar DJ’ WAYNE G has produced the track’s official dancefloor remix release.

The inspirational KyivPride activists have already been making the need for international solidarity very visible with powerful linkups like the Ukraine presence at Liverpool Pride 2023. This takes the idea potentially beyond borders with the power of music and a medium that can carry that message anywhere in the world.

(contains strong language)

Get lesbianated now. Just give in and let it happen. You never know who you'll meet on this bus...


It should always be noted that "being lesbianated" is a divine concept born of the unique mind of the artist known as Lanah P (and naturally Miss P's very own copyright...) with the most fine musical backing of UK DJ/producer SRj.

Director Statement

"The longer film out of which this track was drawn Lehendarni Dity [Usi Kvir] demonstrates how the collective power of ordinary people, in number and shared objectives, can bring about global change. For me, these legendary individuals will never be “ordinary”.
This and the longer film, both in very different ways, mean to send solidarity to LGBT+ - and to all Ukrainians - at this time of critical humanitarian crisis. Within the irreverent, anti-establishment tone of the music and video lie powerful human rights questions.
Quite clearly the Pride movement worldwide is a famously pacifist one, repeatedly proving change can be brought about by non-violent action. But there are no easy or comfortable arguments when it comes to Ukraine's perilous situation. 17 million people displaced, Ukrainian deaths approaching 100,00 with many more casualties, over US$400billion of damage to the country's infrastructure... A placard held-up by a Ukrainian marcher at Liverpool Pride 2023 reading in no uncertain terms "Arm Ukrainian Queers" asks us all a question which can't be dodged.

So how would we respond..? It's unexpected and inspiring to see LGBT+ rights issues in Ukraine find their way prominently and positively into the public arena during Russia's brutal bombardment. What is certain is that many formerly civilian LGBT+ Ukrainians have joined Ukraine's forces to defend their nation with extraordinary valour and resilience.
History shows freedom will out but sometimes at a terrible human cost."
