LGBT Song Playlist: Happy Pride Month!

So it's June, aka pride month. And to celebrate I put together a playlist of some LGBT anthems.

There are songs of all types so I'm sure you'll find at least one you like

Cyndi Lauper - True Colors

But I see your true colors
Shining through
I see your true colors
And that's why I love you
So don't be afraid to let them show
Your true colors
True colors are beautiful,
Like a rainbow

Katy Perry - I Kissed A Girl

I kissed a girl and I liked it
The taste of her cherry chapstick
I kissed a girl just to try it
I hope my boyfriend don’t mind it

Diana Ross - I'm Coming Out

I'm coming out
I want the world to know
Got to let it show
I'm coming out
I want the world to know
I got to let it show

Lady Gaga - Born This Way

Listen to me when I say
I'm beautiful in my way
'Cause God makes no mistakes
I'm on the right track, baby I was born this way

Ariana Grande - Break Free

This is the part when I say I don't want ya
I'm stronger than I've been before
This is the part when I break free
Cause I can't resist it no more

Panic! At The Disco - Girls/Girls/Boys

girls love girls and boys

and never did i think that i
would be caught in the way you got me
but girls love girls and boys
and love is not a choice

MackleMore & Ryan Lewis - Same Love

Samples another LGBT song: She Keeps Me Warm - Mary Lambert

When everyone else Is more comfortable remaining voiceless
Rather than fighting for humans, that have had their rights stolen
I might not be the same But that's not important
No freedom 'til we're equal
Damn right I support it

Hayley Kiyoko - Girls Like Girls

Saw your face, heard your name, gotta get with you
Girls like girls like boys do, nothing new
Isn't this why we came? Gotta get with you
Girls like girls like boys do, nothing new
Girls like girls like boys do, nothing new

Hozier - Take Me To Church

"We were born sick"
You heard them say it
My church offers no absolutes
She tells me "worship in the bedroom"
The only heaven I'll be sent to
Is when I'm alone with you
I was born sick, but I love it
Command me to be well

Village People - YMCA

They have everything for young men to enjoy,
You can hang out with all the boys...

It's fun to stay at the Y.M.C.A.
Fun fact: It was an open secret back in the 1950-1980s that many gay men met at local YMCA and used it for clandestine sexual encounters

Troye Sivan - HEAVEN

Without losing a piece of me
How do I get to heaven?
Without changing a part of me
How do I get to heaven?
All my time is wasted
Feeling like my heart's mistaken, oh
So if I'm losing a piece of me
Maybe I don't want heaven?

Christina Aguilera - Beautiful

I am beautiful
No matter what they say
Words can't bring me down
I am beautiful
In every single way
Yes words can't bring me down
Oh no
So don't you bring me down today

Bad Suns - Salt

Look in the mirror and tell me
What it is like to be free
How do I grasp reality
When I don't have an identity!
Who, who can I look to 'cause I'm not like you, you
And I don't believe in the truth, truth
Because all of my life's built on lies

That's all, G'bye

If you know any other songs, let me know :)

  • Eh, the Katy Perry song in particular rings quite false as it's more of a reflection of girls at the club who will make out just so everyone will look at them rather than actual LGBT pride. I'm old so I would say that The Smiths "This Charming Man" is far more meaningful than anything above -- probably because of when it was released.

    • I love that song. Never really payed attention to the lyrics to notice it was lgbt though

What Guys Said 6

  • I don't want to hear about LGBTAP pride. if they stayed in the closet there wouldn't be so much hate

  • can't wait for straight month, oh wait

    • Show All
    • then you don't need a month of anything

    • its just our way to show that we're proud of who we are, no matter what other people say or think

  • What, no YMCA? :)

    Fun collection, thanks.

  • Some of these songs are okay.

    • I dont even like some of them myself tbh. Some i didn't even listen to. I just saw they were about lgbt or pride and added them in lol

    • I don't think "I Kissed a Girl" is supposed to be about lgbt though. I think it's just supposed to grab people's attention and be sexy.

    • true, but its about a girl kissing a girl so i just put it in

  • I can't wait for happy straight white male month.

    • That will be exciting

    • Show All
    • @kitty71 but they already have the same opportunities

    • So what community is what they are looking for then?
