I Was Born This Way

Are you gay? Well, in that case, you were born that way.
Here is the coolest gay anthem ever in three versions (since I haven't posted anything for a little while). Firstly, the original version recorded by Valentino for the Gaiee label which I just got a hold of a DJ copy of. It's quite a cut, not just for the song but for historical reason as well. Being gay in USA 1975 can't have been the easiest thing, but the gay communities found a shelter in the discos of those days. One of the most obvious gay anthems of those days.
Secondly, the big "disco hit" of the same song recorded by Carl Bean, a black priest on Motown (!). And lastly, the house-remake from 2000. Enjoy!

Interesting article. Could you repost these songs, as the links are dead.
