The 50 Most Inspirational LGBTQ Songs of All Time

From dance-floor classics to soaring ballads, from Xtina to Gloria Gaynor — these songs provide a sense of hope and freedom that has carried the community through tough times

Music has long been a beacon of light for the LGBTQ community, at times a call to celebration and other times a source of solace. The songs documenting the queer experience are as diverse as the community itself, and a reminder that everybody’s story plays out at its own tempo. 

While there have been many iconic anthems to soundtrack Pride parties and gay gatherings alike, there are equally as many songs to turn to in the more introspective moments of life. These are the songs that have inspired our Rolling Stone editors — and millions of others — on their individual journeys. Whether you’re struggling, healing, or just learning to love yourself, there’s something here for you.
