Get ready for Pride with our playlist of 60 essential gay anthems

What makes a gay anthem? Is it a 120 beats-per-minute, hands-in-the-air dance floor filler? Or an angst-ridden torch-song?

From the camp and kitsch to the passionate and poignant, we bring you our Spotify playlist of 60 of the most important gay songs of the last 60 years.
