Bob Dylan, Kesha and St. Vincent have reimagined popular love songs to honor the LGBTQ community, and the singers are doing it by switching pronouns, reports Billboard,

The six-song album, Universal Love, was released digitally last week and includes Benjamin Gibbard of alternative band Death Cab for Cutie, singer-songwriter Valerie June and Kele Okereke of the indie rock group Bloc Party.

Dylan re-worked “She’s Funny That Way” into “He’s Funny That Way,” singing lines like “I got a man crazy for me.”

Kesha, a longtime supporter of the LGBTQ community, closes the album with “I Need a Woman to Love Me,” a spinoff of Janis Joplin’s “I Need a Man to Love Me.”
