Top 10 Pro-LGBT Songs

Songs that support people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender. This includes transgender individuals, so it should not be confused with gay anthem songs.

These songs provide a platform for expressing solidarity with the LGBTQ+ community and addressing various aspects of their experiences. They promote understanding, acceptance, and inclusivity, serving as anthems for individuals of diverse sexual orientations and gender identities. Such music plays a crucial role in raising awareness and fostering a sense of belonging among LGBTQ+ individuals and their allies.
The Top Ten
1 Heaven - Troye Sivan

It's about his insecurities with coming out and wondering if he can still get to heaven even though he's gay.

"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."

This song is beautiful.

2 Beautiful - Christina Aguilera
3 Same Love - Macklemore

Truly, this is the well-deserved number one. It's all the more significant because it got on the radio and because it's hip-hop - a genre that's usually spewing gay hate.

4 Born This Way - Lady Gaga

It isn't centered around being gay like the other songs on this list, but it does mention them, and Lady Gaga does it perfectly.

How is this not #1? Same Love is pro-gay. Born This Way embraces everyone in the LGBT community.

5 All of the Stars - Jackie Evancho

Her single was released in August 2015 and is a cover of Ed Sheeran's 2014 song from the movie "Fault in Our Stars." The somewhat controversial video story follows Jackie's real-life experience with a close family member who is LGBT and shows her unconditional support for them.

Since she first appeared on the scene, Jackie has moved forward and worked on behalf of what she believes in. That's why she was named an official Ambassador for the Humane Society. She has also done fundraisers for the U.N. Children's Fund, Starkey Hearing Foundation, Loma Linda Children's Hospital, Chefs for Seals, and the David Foster Foundation, which focuses on children's organ transplants. Additionally, she has spent time working for her local shelter, Animal Friends of Pittsburgh.

There is a very good article in Teen Vogue magazine that interviews Juliet Evancho, Jackie's transgender sister, about her feelings growing up and the difficulties in revealing her secret to family and friends.

6 True Colors - Cyndi Lauper
7 Girls Like Girls - Hayley Kiyoko

It's a very well-written song, with a nice pop beat, but the video is what really shined. I liked the lesbian romance. It was very cute and similar to a straight romance. I loved the idea of girls defending themselves.

Yes, just yes. This song is a total anthem for me. I love the chorus, "Girls love girls like boys do, nothing new." I really like the accepting vibe it has all around, and I can't think of anything but positive words for Hayley.

8 Change - Christina Aguilera
9 Girls/Girls/Boys - Panic! at the Disco

I love how this mainstream artist has a song with a bisexual theme. The lines "Girls love girls and boys and that is not a choice!" really stick in my head. As a pansexual (I don't care about genitals, I care about who you are), I like to sing those lines myself like this: "I love girls and boys and that is not a choice!"

Love is not a choice.

10 Take Me to Church - Hozier

Everything is symbolic and metaphorical, and Hozier has a lot of talent and a strong voice. The song must've taken a long time to write, and it takes a while to understand.

I love this song!

The Contenders
11 Deeper and Deeper - Madonna
12 F*** You - Lily Allen

I absolutely love this song. It would be awesome if someone sang it to some of the homophobic individuals who twist religion into something disgusting. I honestly don't know how they find enough time to spread so much hate. They really must not have a life.

This song is perfect. It's catchy, and its message is more than clear. I can't help but snicker as I imagine someone actually singing this to a group of homophobic people.

I love how blunt and straightforward it is. Lilly really didn't hold back, with lyrics like, "So you say, it's not ok to be gay, well I think you're just evil. You're just some racist who can't tie my laces, your point of view is medieval." This is sort of me addressing homophobes and transphobes.

13 Your Disco Needs You - Kylie Minogue
14 I Kissed a Girl - Katy Perry

I never really liked Katy Perry, but it was brave of her to do something like this. I thought it was a fun, catchy song with daring lyrics, although I was disappointed that in the video she didn't kiss any girls.

15 Make It Stop (September's Children) - Rise Against
16 Tell Me a Story - Skylar Kergil

Skylar is a trans man himself, and it shows through this song, with the childlike innocence of frequently asked questions that every transgender person has had to answer.

17 Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da - The Beatles

Nobody else on earth could have released a song like this in 1968. Even Bowie and Lou Reed had to wait another five years.

As usual, way ahead of their time in 1968.

18 We're Taking Over - Bea Miller
19 Aftermath - Adam Lambert

It is not only a pro-LGBT song but also a form of self-empowerment for gays in general, telling them they will be okay in the aftermath. Any gay person struggling with coming out should listen to this.

20 Cliff's Edge - Hayley Kiyoko
21 Everyone Is Gay - A Great Big World

The title may seem weird or something, but if you listen to it, then you realize that it's just an unharmful, happy song.

This is a beautiful song!

22 Forced Gender Reassignment - Cattle Decapitation

This song supports transgender people in the most impactful way. It's about taking people who hate trans individuals, changing their genders, and putting them in the position that transgender people are in.

The music video is gruesome. It was banned from YouTube and several other sites. They kidnap members of the Westboro Baptist Church and swap their genders.

These guys are good at getting their message across.

23 I Kissed a Boy - Jupither

Probably the best song based on homosexuality. "I kissed a boy and I liked it, the taste of his cherry ChapStick."

Better than the original.

24 Suffragette City - David Bowie

Bowie addressed bisexuality long before it was cool.

25 Secrets - Mary Lambert
