Now that we’ve officially crossed the threshold into a brand-new decade (see ya, 2010s), we have the rare opportunity to look back at the previous 10 years and contemplate what were the most exciting, important, groundbreaking, top pop culture moments to take place. And who better to rank those moments than Hornet users, queer men from around the globe?

Back in December we asked the guys of Hornet to vote on which moments — some news stories, some entertainment related, some cultural happenings — were their favorite of the 2010s. They let us know, and we racked up votes from thousands of guys worldwide.

Here are the top pop culture moments of the 2010s, as voted on by Hornet users:
