Our Way-Gay Singalong (thanks for Chering)

Last night we rocked the casbah with some of our favorite LGBT hits at the Alamo Drafthouse Ritz. Featuring some of our favorites like Wham!, Lady Gaga and the ever impeccable Britney Spears, this gaggle of gay anthems had us shaking our booties like the best of ’em. We had an amazing turn out and an even better VJ (for us old MTV types) that went on blastin’ tunes till our arms were tired from “yaaas”ing too much. Pre-show, we were delighted to showcase the drag horror film (a genre we really hope takes off) “Nasty” and man, were these queens shaking in their heels! Special thanks goes out to board member Craig Ries for organizing and executing a wonderfully good time!

As inspired by the show of LGBT pride, here are some classic anthems that still hold up!

Sylvester – You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real)

During the height of 70’s homophobia and disco, the ever androgynous Sylvester James Jr. released this classic upbeat jam that was blasting on dance floors all over the country. One of the biggest hits from an openly gay male, You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real) is an anthem that celebrates openness and relief at finding a community that can make socially closeted men acknowledge their feelings and abandon any sort of shame. Sylvester fought hard to be himself and his soulful disco pop was such a great medium for celebration and otherworldly dance moves!

Eurythmics feat. Aretha Franklin – Sisters Are Doin’ it For Themselves

In a mind-blowing combination of vocal talent, Sisters Are Doin’ It For Themselves is a song celebrating feminism. Women don’t need no man and they certainly don’t need no patriarchal society. Sisters holds up incredibly well to modern ideas of feminism and the poppy elements still can be jammed when cruisin’ around town with the top down and the sun out. “Now there was a time where they used to say / that behind every great man there’s a great woman / but in these times of change you know it’s no longer true
