10 Iconic Christmas Albums to Make the Yuletide Gay
By Glenn Garner
'Slay Belles' by RuPaul
Mama Ru, Michelle Visage, and Todrick Hall are all here to spread some chosen family Christmas cheer.
'Last Christmas' by Wham!
If 1980s George Michael gives you his heart for Christmas, you’d be a fool to give it away the very next day.
'Merry Christmas' by Mariah Carey
You’re probably just as sick as I am of hearing “All I Want for Christmas Is You” blasted on repeat every year. But we have to give credit where it’s due, and this song is certainly a Christmas bop for all the gays.
'Thank God It’s Christmas' by Queen
Queer rock god, Freddie Mercury, gave us plenty of epic tracks over the years. But let’s not forget this classic Christmas tune while the rest of the world is overcome with Bohemian Rhapsody fever.
'Christmas Queens' by the queens of 'RPDR'
Ginger, Katya, Alaska and all our favorite queens come together to add some charisma, uniqueness, nerve, and talent to a season otherwise plagued with Hallmark original movies.
'A Very Gaga Holiday' by Lady Gaga
Mother Monster becomes an iconic Mother Christmas with her beautiful rendition of “White Christmas.”
'Glee: The Christmas Album' by the cast of 'Glee'
This Ryan Murphy show was full of its queer moments. But nothing got our young gay hearts racing quite like Kurt and Blaine in their cover of “Baby, It’s Cold Outside.”
'A Very Big Freedia Christmazz' by Big Freedia
Add some bounce to your holiday party with the Queen of Bounce herself. These takes on Rudolph, Frosty, and Santa are sure to pick up the tempo.
'Songs for Christmas' by Sufjan Stevens
If you’re into the Christmas classics, Sufjan Stevens is just the voice to do them justice. It’s the perfect album to play while staring at the fire and crying over Armie Hammer.
'Elton John’s Christmas Party' by Elton John & friends
Elton John is joined by Rufus Wainwright, the Beach Boys, U2, and some other iconic musicians in this compilation.
