The International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia (IDAHOBIT) was conceived in 2004 to commemorate the day that the World Health Organization (WHO) removed homosexuality from the International Classification of Diseases’ list of mental and behavioral disorders in 1990.

As the event’s name implies, the main purpose of IDAHOBIT is to raise awareness against discrimination towards the LGBT community. In honor of this, this week’s PYHOF presents a playlist that supports such ideals.

Editor’s Note: To provide you with a more out-of-the-box list, we’ve purposefully left out some of the older classics and ubiquitous anthems and added some contemporary tunes that also inspire empowerment and pride. We hope you enjoy!

I’m Coming Out by Diana Ross
Don’t Rain on My Parade by Barbra Streisand
Vogue by Madonna
I Am What I Am by Gloria Gaynor
Don’t Stop Me Now by Queen
Freedom! ‘90 by George Michael
Proud by Heather Small
Beautiful by Christina Aguilera
Stand Up by Jessie J
Defying Gravity by Idina Menzel
Firework by Katy Perry
Grace Kelly by Mika
Raise Your Glass by P!nk
Born This Way by Lady Gaga
