1. "There For You" - Troye Sivan, Martin Garrix 

Sivan dedicated the emotional dance-pop track to his largely LGBT following, tweeting "Not to be over dramatic, but this song is in my eyes about you guys. You guys have been there, every step of the way. Got me through last year which was a crazy one. I hope I can do the same for you." 

2. "Know Your Name" - Mary Lambert

The lesbian "Same Love" singer released her new album, Bold, last month. The record's lead single, "Know Your Name" is a flirty bop about lady love that is sure to get you grooving.

3. "Rosé All Day" - Bobby Newport

Choreographer to the stars, Bobby Newport is ready to soak up the sun and a bit of day drinking with "Rosé All Day." Can you say #relatable? Your beach body might not be ready just yet, but we've found your soundtrack for the summer.

4. "Mama Say" - Betty Who

An ode to Britney Spears, you can't help but get up and move to Betty Who's infectious dance track. Now who wants to help me learn this choreography?

5. "Strangers" - Halsey, Lauren Jauregui

Halsey and Lauren Jauregui's self-professed "love song for the LGBTQ community," the bisexual pop stars sing about their past female lovers over a synthy, '80s beat. 

6. "Beautiful Ones" - Hurts

An uplifting and empowering queer anthem, "Beautiful Ones" is a powerful "celebration of individuality." Lead singer Theo Hutchcraft croons "we are the beautiful ones" over a heavy beat and a soaring guitar solo, begging you not to forget it. 

7. "The Cure" - Lady Gaga

The queen monster premiered "The Cure" at Coachella and dedicated the song to her fans. "I love you guys so much. I'm telling you, I have been through so much in my life and I've seen so much. You guys cure me every time with your love."

8. "Versailles" - Leo Kalyan

The openly gay singer sings of a newfound love in this dreamy and eclectic pop/r&b track.

9. "Swish Swish" - Katy Perry 

Clearly written for the gays, Perry certainly knows how to get her audience on the dance floor. This Taylor Swift diss track will help you shake off all the haters in your life. 

10. "Sleepover" - Hayley Kiyoko

A sexy celebration of women in love, Kiyoko hosts a sensual sleepover that'll make you want to snuggle up to the one you love. 

11. "Cut to the Feeling" - Carly Rae Jepsen

Carly Rae Jepsen raptured the gays into queer heaven with her new single "Cut to the Feeling." The feel-good, bouncy '80s throwback track will surely be playing at Pride events around the country.

12. "Symphony" - Clean Bandit

The "emotional banger" of the year, Clean Bandit tells the story of a doomed loved story in the video for "Symphony." I'll definitely be crying in the club to this one.

13. "Malibu" - Miley Cyrus

The pansexual pop star returns rejuvenated and carefree with her new track, "Malibu." Dedicated to her fiancé Liam Hemsworth, Cyrus describes the song as "gimmick-free pop-rock unlike anything she has recorded before."

14. "Electric Touch" - A R I Z O N A

A R I Z O N A's touching music video for "Electric Touch" features a same-sex couple who, after starring in the video, were inspired to come out to their friends and family.

15. "Beautiful" - Betty Who

Penned after last year's Pulse shooting, Betty Who wrote this funky, inspirational dance track specifically for the LGBTQ community, to remind us all that we are beautiful and loved. The song even features gay singers Scott Hoying and Mitch Grassi from Pentatonix!
