A very strong final, both are evergreen disco classics that will be forever played and loved by the LGBT community. I’m gonna go for Gloria Gaynor.

I'll give this another 12 hours and see if anyone else votes. Don't have time now as I am heading out for the club, which better be raining men or I won't survive. :evil:

I dislike both songs, tbh.

I will probably go with "It's Raining Men", though

RUNNER-UP


An extremely tight battle that kept tying up almost to the end, falling 12-10, we have one of the most wackadoodle videos of all time, as described here by Buzzfeed. The song is quintessentially pride because what gay guy doesn't want a world where it's raining all types of awesome men? :lol:

WINNER


At the beginning of this Survivor, we did two Eurovision contests, and our finalists both finished #2 in those competitions. But one went on the win the whole enchilada anyhow. If you look up the wikipedia page for gay anthem, the Popular Music journal names I Will Survive as the most identifiable gay anthem, so perhaps we shouldn't be surprised that it is getting crowned today. In the push for gay rights and AIDS awareness in the ensuing years after the song, this song had its own political message in its title, and here it is a most fitting title for a Survivor competition. It not only survived to the end, it conquered!

Thanks, everyone, for making this such a fun survivor to host. This was a much more popular Survivor than I expected it to be and I think the outcome was perfect. That top ten is solid!

Fantastic winner! I can't think of many LGBT anthems that are more empowering than "I Will Survive". In a world that still largely criminalises our existence, "I Will Survive" is a bold declaration that we will survive in spite of the hate and bigotry.

Great job hosting, CT! :D

I am not trying to seduce you... Would you like me to seduce you? Is that what you're trying to tell me?
