From "Rumors" To "Work Bitch," I Need To Know How Many Of These "Songs That Make Gay People Scream" Make You Yell

Don't get in between twinks and the dance floor when "Rumors" by Lindsay Lohan comes on at a gay bar.

My fellow queer community, there is an iconic Spotify playlist called "Songs that make gay people scream" that has been my go-to soundtrack since finding it off Tumblr in 2017. Five years later, it still brings me joy.

I've always been curious exactly how many people it causes to scream. So, especially if you're gay, I'd love to know out of the 75 tracks, how many of these songs actually make you scream? Let's play!

And of course, gays are not a monolith, and there is no way all gay people love these songs. It's just a fun poll!

1. First up, "Work From Home" by Fifth Harmony ft. Ty Dolla $ign
