Sure, come on in, the club is open to everyone. But you should at least know some of the gay icons over the last few decades. So I have thoughtfully posted some pix, GIFs, and a video for you to get started on. There are many more too…
UPDATE: This is just a random sampling of the many, many gay icons in recent decades. Future installments will include more of them, including legends of film.
This song takes care of two gay icons at once. Miss Whitney. A-may-zing voice, at least up until the mid-90s. The song was written and first covered by Dolly Parton, an incredible talent, but Whitney made it into a world wide #1 hit.. Not such a fan of Dolly’s music but I love her as a person and personality. I even went to Pigeon Forge, Tennessee where she was from. But that’s another story.
That would be Miss Patti Labelle in the middle. Nona Hendryx on the left and I think Sarah Dash on the right. Did you know that Patti’s real name was/is Patricia Holt? I didn’t ’til now.
