Gloria Gaynor and Cyndi Lauper beat out some tough competition in the first round of our gay anthem bracket. Cyndi's pop ballad "True Colors" is the quintessential anthem focused on allowing your true self shine bright. Gloria's "I Will Survive" is not only one of the most iconic girl power pop anthems of all time, but the 1978 smash hit has also empowered generations of LGBTQ people to persevere in the face of opposition. Which gay pride anthem is the greatest? 👬🎤

Don't forget to cast your vote for the rest our “Gay Anthem" debates below!

For the past several decades—women and LGBTQ pop music artists have openly declared their "true colors,” supported gay rights and empowered LGBTQ communities to be born their way. Enter the "Gay Anthem.” And there’s no better way to celebrate Pride Month than to honor the pop divas (women and queers included) in music who have influenced LGBTQ movements, and ultimately pick the greatest gay anthem of all time.

Gloria's "I Will Survive" crushed Diana Ross' hit 'I'm Coming Out," and Cyndi's "True Colors" triumphed over Judy Garland's classic rendition of "Over the Rainbow" in the first round. It's Gloria versus Cyndi. 

Now, time to vote on your favorite anthem for pride in the second round:

Best gay anthem: 'Y.M.C.A.' or 'I Want to Break Free'?

Best gay anthem: 'Supermodel' or 'It's Raining Men'?

Best gay anthem: 'Together Again' or 'Beautiful'?

Here are some significant lyrics to Gloria's biggest hit, "I Will Survive," per Genius.

🎶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🎶
