I think its shadey that all gay icons are STRAIGHT




Gays are trained to hate themselves so much they cant even worship one another... its why we sublimate our desires onto WOMEN... fierce but "off" women who we relate to... I really think gays need to learn to like one another and recognize the endless self hate. Theres not even a fierce gay icon out there that SERVES IT to the children of tomorrow. Even as a kid my gay icons were closted, Pete Burns, Boy George even...
I like my gay neighborhood and Im a tiny bit straight bashy though I do love them too but still... I think it sucks that we have to be raised by them... YES it gives us super powers that the straight world could never have BUT it leaves you, or me at least, with a life long sense of alienation... which is why i related / loved Grace Jones so much as a kid. She was DEFINITELY different then everyone else, purple even, a total alien but also intimidating to the authority figures in my life.. and beautiful.......
Im going to bed now.. just had to get that off my chest... Maybe Im HAPPY I was raised by straight people.. Im happy to be me... Maybe its just hard to admit youre happy....

Happy to me as well... I always had a thing for Spider-Man; his web slinging bondage traps....

Can we really support an openly gay icon without trashing him in the process?

We like our gay icons flamboyant and outrageous like Lady Gaga and Madonna and yet, we also like them to be straight acting and masculine to reflect upon us in a positive light. The combo is simply not possible!

Dave,

I don't quite remember the year, but I believe it was about 1979, Carol chaining was in Baltimore to perform "Hello Dolly". I was a "kid" about then....oh, about 23 years old. It was Christmas Eve and I was on my own going to the Maryland Institute of Art in Baltimore and decided that I would treat myself to the Chambord Restaurant in Baltimore. I was the only person in the restaurant for about two hours until Carol Channing and her entourage came in after her performance of "Hello Dolly". She, along with her party & "chef", sat at the table next to mine when she, after examining the menu, bent over and asked me what was "Red Snapper".....nervously, I said "fish"...can you believe it! Later, that evening, the owner of the restaurant came downstairs and invited Carol (and me) to his mansion across the way for a party (which she accepted). It was a strange evening because Carol had severe food allergies and she always had her "chef" travel with her. This evening he prepared her food with a bunsen burner at the table at Chambord.....you & I would have been thrown out on our ass...but we made exception for Ms. Channing (and rightfully so). Anyway, later that evening, I "chatted" up a storm with Ms. Channing and went to the party. To my delight, later that evening, she sang "A Man in the Moon Is a Lady".....this was a truly remarkable and extraordinarily fine Christmas Eve. I just wanted to share.

Huggs & Kisses,

Joe

You're my gay icon Dave. You have been for a couple of years now. It's your perspective, how you view the world as a gay man with such honesty that makes you the top of my list.

and thanks Adam, thats very sweet of you! and yes Brandon i agree with jonte getting the respect he deserves

Well, I think it's changing because children of future generations will have many more opportunities to have openly gay role models than we did, in greater variety.

Maybe Dave Mason is some faggoty kindergartener's hero right now!

Not so, Phillyguy! I like Madonna AND Jack Wrangler.
