Top Ten Pro-LGBT Songs

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

The Top Ten

1 Same Love - Macklemore

With lyrics like:
"A word rooted in hate, yet our genre still ignores it
Gay is synonymous with the lesser
It's the same hate that's caused wars from religion
Gender to skin color, the complexion of your pigment
The same fight that led people to walk outs and sit ins
It's human rights for everybody, there is no difference!
Live on and be yourself
When I was at church they taught me something else
If you preach hate at the service those words aren't anointed
That holy water that you soak in has been poisoned
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" no wonder it is number one. - ToptenPizza

Lgbts are pretty gross and wrong to be honest

Truly the well deserved number one. Its all the more significant because it got on the radio, and because its hip -hop. A genre that's usually spewing the gay-hate. - keycha1n

2 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 was similar to a straight romance, and I loved the idea of girls defending themselves. - ToptenPizza

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 acceptance glow it has all around and I can't think of anything but positive words for Hayley

so awesome - tbell4ever

3 All of the Stars - Jackie Evancho

Her single released in August 2015, and 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 story of a close family member who is LGBT, and shows her unconditional support for them.

I saw that interview, it was good.

There is a very good article in TeenVogue 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.

All profits from her 2017 EP "United We Stand" go to benefit LGBT charities.

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 do it perfectly. - ToptenPizza

5 Take Me to Church - Hozier

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

This song is overrated and overplayed. I don't like it at all! - RiverClanRocks

I love this song! - rob5

6 Heaven - Troye Sivan

This song is beautiful

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."

7 Beautiful - Christina Aguilera
8 F*** You - Lily Allen

I absolutely love this song. It would be awesome if someone sang it to some of the homophobic bastards that 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.

But this song is perfect. It's catchy and its message is more than clear. And 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" sort of me addressing homophobes and transphobes. - ToptenPizza

9 Girls/Girls/Boys - Panic! at the Disco

Love is not a choice.

"Girls love girls and boys" - Catacorn

"AND LOVE IS NOT A CHOICE! " Man, do I love this song. - EternalLaughter

Best song!

10 True Colors - Cyndi Lauper

The Newcomers

? The Village - Wrabel

This song is an ode to the LGBT+ community and perfectly depicts what it's like to feel like an outsider in your own home, ostracized and attacked just for being who you are.

The Contenders

11 Tell Me a Story - Skylar Kergil

Skylar is a transman himself and it shows through this song, with thw child like innocence of frequently asked questions that every transgender has had to answer. - ToptenPizza

12 Change - Christina Aguilera
13 Deeper and Deeper - Madonna
14 Beautiful Ones - Hurts
15 I Kissed a Girl - Katy Perry

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. - ToptenPizza

The only good thing I can say about this song is that it's catchy. - RiverClanRocks

Her other song your So Gay is really offensive. She wrote it to her ex who likes some feminine stuff or something and because of that she uses the word gay to insult him. - JelloLife

16 Aftermath - Adam Lambert

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

17 Make It Stop (September's Children) - Rise Against

Great song - Elina

18 Poker Face - Lady Gaga
19 We're Taking Over - Bea Miller
20 Rise Like a Phoenix - Conchita Wurst

It's the singer behind the song that makes it so great. Maybe it's a message for trans people across the world? - JelloLife

The singer is a character played by a gay man. "Conchita Wurst" is a female. - BeatlesFan1964

21 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 5 years.

As usual, way ahead of their time in 1968.

22 Your Disco Needs You - Kylie Minogue
23 Cliff's Edge - Hayley Kiyoko
24 Suffragette City - David Bowie

Bowie addressed bisexuality long before it was cool. - PetSounds

...but 5 years after the Beatles did it.

25 Changes - David Bowie
26 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 a unharmful happy song. - JelloLife

27 Forced Gender Reassignment - Cattle Decapitation

This song supports transgender in the hardest hitting way. Its about taking people who hate trans people and changing their genders, and putting them in the position Transgender are in.

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

These guys are good at getting their message across - ryanrimmel

28 Secrets - Mary Lambert
29 I Kissed a Boy - Jupither

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

30 Shadilay - P.E.P.E

PRAISE KEK - ManuelePepe

PRAISE KEK

31 S.O.S D'un Terrien En D├ętresse - Dimash Kudaibergen
32 Walk On the Wild Side - Lou Reed

Another groundbreaker, but again 5 years after The Beatles did so.

33 It's Okay to Be Gay - Tomboy
34 Jenny - Studio Killers

The artist who sings the song Cherry in Studio Killers is confirmed to be a trans woman + plus that this is a lesbian crush song so I think it counts. - JelloLife

35 Coming Clean - Green Day
36 One Foot - Fun.
37 Transgender Dysphoria Blues - Against Me!
38 Outlaws of Love - Adam Lambert
39 In This Life - Madonna
40 Forbidden Love - Madonna
41 Why's It So Hard - Madonna
42 Pray for Spanish Eyes - Madonna
43 Kashka from Baghdad - Kate Bush
44 Marisa Stole the Precious Thing - IOSYS
45 What What (In the Butt) - Samwell
46 Girls - Rita Ora
