  1. My God, who came up with this list? How old are they, 19? So many great PRIDE anthems are missing here, and so many that are listed that don’t have a damned thing to do with it. Please find another source next time, but don’t ask any “gay” person here in Charlotte who’s under 30. All they know is gangster rap.

  2. I agree with Jamie, this is a pretty crappy list.
