Top 5...

Gay Pride Anthems

It's June, therefore it must be Gay Pride Month.  There are so many songs that have meaning to the members of the gay and lesbian community.  Here are my Top 5 Gay Pride anthems.


5. Idina Menzel - Defying Gravity
No matter what anyone tells you, never let them hold you down. Be yourself and everyone else be damned.


4. Diana Ross - I'm Coming Out
True it's cliche but an anthem is an anthem.



3.  Donna Summer/Barbara Streisand - No More Tears (Enough is Enough)
One of the best duets of all time and I'm not even a Barbara Streisand fan.


2.  Cyndi Lauper - True Colors
I didn't like this song as a kid but as an adult, I have found an appreciation for this song.  It means a tremendous amount to me now.


1.  Heather Small - Proud
Not only is this my favorite Pride song, but it's one of my favorite songs of all time.  I have been a fan of M-People and Heather Small for quite some time.  You cannot help but to feel a swelling of pride when you hear this song.
