LGBT People Pay Tribute to The Cranberries' Delores O'Riordan

Delores O'Riordan

LGBT people are paying tribute today to The Cranberries lead singer Dolores O'Riordan, who has died at age 46. 

The Irish band broke through in the ‘90s with “Linger” and then became the music of many young people. Although O'Riordan was straight, her music inspired LGBT people. Queer singer Lane Moore, of the band It Was Romance, put it clearly, writing on Twitter that “Her music helped me not die when I thought life would kill me.” 

The band and O'Riordan were trending Monday on Twitter, where LGBT people expressed heartbreak and shared what the singer meant to them. 

Here is the tweet from artist Moore. Click through for the complete thread.
