Diana Ross and Gloria Gaynor were disco divas with huge gay followings in the '70s and '80s. Gloria's hit "I Will Survive" is not only a girl power anthem, but it'd been adopted by the LGBTQ as a declaration of perseverance. Diana's "I'm Coming Out" was much more direct, and targeted her gay fandom as an anthem encouraging self-disclosure and proudness. The single gave Diana her sixth #1 hit. Which gay pride anthem is the greatest? 👬🎤

Below are some notable lyrics to Gloria's biggest hit, "I Will Survive."

At first, I was afraid, I was petrified
Thinking, I couldn't live without you by my side
Hm after spending nights thinking, "how you did me wrong?"
I grew strong and I learned how to get along
