Last year, we asked you to tell us who the Ultimate LGBTQ Icon is. After four rounds of a knockdown,drag-out brawl and a few surprises (Adam Lambert brought down Lady Gaga!) you named the first openly gay person to be elected to American public office, Harvey Milk, the winner.

This year, we are asking our beloved readers and fans to pick another LGBTQ Ultimate, the Ultimate LGBTQ Anthem.

According to the holy one Madonna, “Music makes the people come together. Music mix the bourgeoisie and the rebel.” We have compiled 32 of what we think are contenders to be the all-time, greatest LGBTQ Anthem.

Whether it gets you in the mood for passion, protesting or Pride — or maybe they just make you want to party your buns off, these songs get you on your feet and get you into the community.

We limited it to one song per artist, so while we realize artists like Queen, Lady Gaga, The Village People and more have several songs that could appear on this bracket, we went with the one we thought fit more into “Anthem.”

We have included, in this first round, videos of each song so you can see which one moves you. Opening round closes March 22 at 5:00 P.M. EST. So sit back, listen and vote.

Now, without further ado, Watermark’s 2017 Ultimate LGBTQ Anthem.
