Iconic movie star Judy Garland and iconic musician Elton John have been crowned the greatest gay icons of all time.
In an online poll of 5,000 gay men and women, survey service OnePoll.com found that the “Wizard of Oz” starlet and piano playing singer are tops in the gay community.
Queen front-man Freddie Mercury came in second on the male icon list and soccer star David Beckham (who is not gay) came in at number 10.
On the lady list Kylie Minogue, Madonna, Cher and Garland’s daughter Liza Minnelli rounded out the top five.
The main reason he is the greatest homo-gay-sual, by whatever poll they took to get that conclusion. Is because of the well known familiarity and all the charities he has contributed towards the gay community, Political correct is over-rated so use what words you will. The point is, who else has done this much for the gay population, free concerts, a role model to people who think being gay keeps them from being a big time star, and the charity is the biggest pro in my opinion.
Yeah, Liberace! He was the King of Queers! I loved when he would fly through the air in his mink coat! And all those rings... Ya gotta admit the guy had over-the-top class! Better than a drag queen.
And neither is Madonna!
What was the point of this article? Neither Liza Minnelli or Judy Garland are/were homosexual. It would seem that the article was actually making fun of the word "gay" – the "gayest" celebraties has nothing to do with their sexual orientation, it would seem....
Judy Garland was gay...er.....homosexual....( is it ok if I say lesbian?)....???
Does it really matter how we word "homosexual"? We can say gay if we want to or not.
How weak is this article? also, gay is definitely an ok word hahaha.
yes – Liberace should have been up there.
Gay people themselves developed the term. If it's what they prefer to be called, that's their right.
Elton John is a disgrace to gays. He is loud-mouthed, disrespectful of other celebrities who do not agree with his ideas or his taste, and he has delusions of grandeur. This gay guy needs to retire or locked up in his room and throw away the key until he learned to have some manners.
and the greatest gay icon is an entertainer? In this celeb crazed world it does'nt surprise me.
"Homosexual is a completely correct term...."
As is the word 'gay', Debra.
what about Tom Cruise?
Go Elton! Just curious...Why stop using the word gay?
How about we stop using the term straight, Debra? Heterosexual is also a completely correct term.
What about Liberace?
Can we please stop using the word gay? Homosexual is a completely correct term....
