Just curious if there's any good LGBTQ love songs or gay pride songs that I'm missing out on. My faves are:
One Man Guy- Rufus Wainwright
F*ck You- Lily Allen
Love Etc.- Pet Shop Boys

Drive IS a good one!
Everything by Melissa Etheridge. That's not the name of a song. I mean literally everyting.
"It's Okay To Be Gay" by Tomboy is an awesome one. I remember hearing it on my first trip to a gay club.
"Alright" by Kinnie Starr. ALthough not obviously about LGBTQ issues, it contains a strong lesbian subtext.
"Strangers Like Me" by Phil Collins is an interesting song. If you listen to it from the viewpoint of a woman, gay themes are very apparent. I was planning on doing a cover of it myself, actually.
"The Origin of Love" by Hedwig and the Angry Inch.
The whole show of Hedwig and the Angry Inch is phenomenally great. There's a movie of it and also a documentary called Follow My Voice (a line from one of the songs) about a gay school in New York and the compilation disk that was done of the music from the show as a benefit for the school. The documentary is great and it's on Netflix Instant Viewing. The show is really great. it's a rock opera about a singer who is the survivor of a botched sex change operation (hence the angry inch). The show and the music are both really great. The compilation of covers from it is called Wig in a Box. It has Rufus Wainwright, They Might Be Giants, Bob Mould, Frank Black, the Breeders, Yoko Ono, Polyphonic Spree, and a lot of other great ones.
