For our new gayspy section we're running a piece on the top ten gay pop icons, and we'd like you to determine the order! Madonna or Kylie? Britney or Christina? You decide...

Do you just want gay people to vote? I'm not gay but would have voted for Dusty but I don't want to skew your results.

Also, were you aware gayspy is a slang term, and not a nice one, for a certain gaming server?

Well I am straight so can't comment from that standpoint but my favourite from the above would be Dusty by a country mile - fantastic singer

But hey ! NO RUFUS WAINWRIGHT ?

Has to be Dusty for me too. But you have missed quite a few off. Judy Garland and Marc Almond for starters.

I think what they mean by Gay Icon is not someone who is gay themselves but has an affinity with the gay community.

I voted for Kylie as I think in the present day she is probably the most revered amongst many gay people. Madonna would probably come a close second, and is probably bigger worldwide, but I think Kylie holds more affection in the UK at least.

Why is Elton John in this list? He's not a gay "icon".

Nor is Will Young for that matter.

I'm just asking about Gay Womens icons on another forum. Might take a while, it's a wee bit slow.

Kylie, of course!
I do find that she appeals to everyone though, her concerts draw in an extremely varied range of people.

Let's have a go at pigeon-holing them as well then shall we and giving them all an icon they all have to adore, after a poll of course.
