Much as it's my favourite of the three, I can't help feeling it's just not as LGBT Pride Anthem as the others - particularly the Weather Girls. (In fact it's the only one I heard whilst I was at Pride, but that was being done by a pretty unremarkable Cher tribute act, so I can't say it encouraged me to vote for it to win here)

This is so hard! "I Will Survive" is one of the biggest gay classics of all-time. I've never been to a gay bar and not heard the song, and I feel like it's been a part of almost every LGBT+ TV show or film I've seen, too! But then you have "It's Raining Men", which is just astoundingly camp. This may be me being just a tad influenced by some of Gloria Gaynor's borderline homophobic comments in the past, but...

"It's Raining Men" for the win! 8-)

Gloria Gaynor - I Will Survive.

There will never be a more significant song indicative of the gay community's struggle for equal rights over the last few decades, a brilliant song.

Perfect final!

"I Will Survive" may be the bigger 'gay anthem', but personally i never really enjoyed it as much as i should, while i simply love "It's Raining Men". So my vote goes to The Weather Girls - It's Raining Men
