Arguably this past summer’s major gay anthem, Taylor Swift’s 'You Need to Calm Down’ also made one very entertaining music video. So much so that it picked up the Video of the Year award at the MTV Video Music Awards. And the awards just keep coming for T-Swift, with LGBTQ media monitoring organization GLAAD set to honor her with the Vanguard Award on April 16.
Her summer song certainly has a lot to do with the praise. Indeed, in this last century every generation has had more than their fair share of gay anthems. For a comprehensive list, check out the following gallery.
