Well, it had to be Gaga didn’t it! A new survey of the some of UK’s LGBTQ+ leading lights in the community has revealed that  Born This Way is THE favourite go-to Pride anthem.

 

Coming in second was I’m Coming Out by Miss Diana Ross with I Will Survive bringing it in at number three. The poll was commissioned by Wildcat Gin who surveyed an LGBTQ+ jury of performers, journo and celebs, including RuPaul’s Drag Race star Ginny Lemon. Geddit? Wildcat Gin/Ginny Lemon. 

 

Head of Wildcat Gin, Kenny Nicholson proved that it wasn’t just a Pride inspired publicity stunt, saying: “We know that people celebrate and mark Pride month in many different ways. Uniting with LGBTQ+ friends and allies through music is such an important form of expression – whether through performance, singing, protesting or dancing. That’s why we want to honour some of the tunes that have made us feel free, empowered or happy over the years, and we hope the playlist helps to soundtrack people’s celebrations this year. We’re extending our support of the Pink Noise fund to support LGBTQ+ creatives, by donating 10 per cent of proceeds from every Pride bottle of our flavoured gin or vodka sold at Tesco throughout the month.”

 

Ginny has even done a special version of the number one track and said ‘Enjoy my unique cover of Lady Gaga’s Born This Way – voted as the ultimate number one anthem. And with proceeds going to an amazing cause, grab yourself a bottle or two now, and I’ll see you at a Pride event very soon, babz!’
