A revista americanaOut resolveu fazer uma seleção alternativa: com um juri de mais 100 especialistas no assunto, entre eles os cantores Boy George, Cyndi Lauper e Rufus Wainwrigh, escolher os 100 álbuns mais gays já lançados.

O resultado foi no mínimo inusitado para o primeiro lugar: nada de Village People ou Gloria Gaynor, mas David Bowie com The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders From Mars, de 1972.  A lista é composta por 100 álbuns da música pop e cada um dos jurados levou em conta um critério pessoal para a escolha.
