We hear these songs and think they’re about secret heterosexual relationships, but when you’re gay, these songs take on an entirely different meaning…

“Qué importa lo que dirán tu padre y tu mamá, aquí solo importa nuestro amor”

“Amor Prohibido” – Selena

We’ve all dated someone who’s parents aren’t totally in love with the idea of them being gay. Although it sucks, it’s still kinda hot to be in a forbidden relationship.

“Yo pienso que tú y yo podemos ser felices todavía. Si nos dejan, buscamos un rincón cerca del cielo”

“Si Nos Dejan” – Luis Miguel 

Before the law changed, this was exactly how we felt. We wanted to run off to Massachusetts – the first city to legalize gay marriage before the Supreme Court ruling – to be out in the open with our love.

“Eres secreto de amor. Delante de la gente no me mires, no suspires, no me llames, aunque me ames. Delante de la gente soy tu amigo”

“Secreto de Amor”  – Joan Sebastian

Before coming out, we were always paranoid that all eyes were on us. We thought everyone would be able to spot out the person we were hooking up with, so we’d tell them to avoid us, don’t talk to us, don’t even look at us.

“Amiga mía, lo sé, solo vives por él, que lo sabe también, pero él no te ve como yo”

“Amiga Mia” – Alejandro Sanz feat. Natalia Jimenez

We’ve all had that crush who was dating an asshole and all you wanted to do was help her get out of that relationship. You just wanted to yell and tell her that all guys are jerks.

“Lo que no sabes es que yo quisiera ser ese por quién te desvelas y te desesperas”

“Yo Quisiera” – Reik

We’ve all had that straight crush. You’re falling in love with that person, but you know it’s nearly impossible. You know you’re stuck in the friend zone.

“Yo no quería quererte y no lo pude evitar. Creí poder defenderme. Pero a mi corazón no lo puedes atar”

“Yo No Me Quiero Enamorar” – Kalimba

We’ve all had that crush escalate and even our friends warned us, it’s not a good idea.

“Mi amor clandestino que en el silencio y el dolor se nos cae todo el cielo de esperar”

“Amor Clandestino” – Maná

The worst feeling in the world is having to keep your love a secret. It’s such a feeling of desperation. You want to tell the entire world you’re in love – but you can’t ?.

“¿A quién le importa lo qué yo haga? ¿A quién le importa lo que yo diga? Yo soy así, y así seguiré, nunca cambiaré”

“A Quién Le Importa” – Thalía

When people told you you’re not really a lesbian, you’re not really gay… This song spoke to you. This is the loving yourself anthem.
