Homo hop is a genre of hip hop music performed by LGBT artists and performers. It has been described as "a global movement of gay hip-hop MCs and fans determined to stake their claim in a genre too often associated with homophobia and anti-gay lyrics."[1]

Notable events in the history of homo hop include the PeaceOUT World Homo Hop Festival which was founded in 2001 and mounted for several years on the West and East coasts, and the 2006 documentary film Pick Up the Mic.
