As the first French media dedicated to women and LGBTQIA+ in hip hop, Madame Rap has been working since 2016 to deconstruct cliches and highlight female and LGBTQIA+ artists in rap.

With this in mind, and for the second year in a row, we made an infographic based on our online directory of international female and LGBTQIA+ rappers. Regularly updated, this directory gathers artists who released at least one track physically, online or on social networks.

This work aims to create archives and restore to these invisibilized artists the recognition they deserve in the history of rap.

With 2720 artists in 125 different countries, (2389 female rappers and 331 LGBTQIA+ rappers) including 405 in France, how can we still claim that there are no women and queer in rap?
