Os 100 melhores álbuns gueis de todos os tempos

A revista estadunidense Out fez uma pesquisa entre atores, comediantes, músicos, escritores, críticos, DJs e outros, fazendo apenas duas perguntas:

  • O que torna um álbum bom?
  • E o que torna um bom álbum gay?

O resultado foi uma lista de 100 discos. É claro que nem todos são de artistas assumidamente homossexuais, mas todos tiveram relevância para os votantes. Tem Elton John, k.d.lang e Pet Shop Boys, mas também tem Donna Summer, Beatles e, é claro, Madonna.
