The show, called Gay Icons, was previously noted back in March for snubbing obvious choices like Liza, Judy and Barbra. Instead, the celebrity panel chose from their hearts, such as they are.
Elton John chose John Lennon, his songwriting partner Bernie Taupin, Gianni Versace and few randoms. Bilie Jean King chose her wife and some members of her family (leave it to the dyke to be boring). Sir Ian McKellan chose Walt Whitman.
But the prize, in our book, for the most honest and awesome choices goes to Lord Waheed Alli, who picked Princess Diana, The Village People and a portrait of porn legend and weird, violent neighbor Jeff Stryker, naked in a tangle of white sheets. Alli said, “I wanted a porn star because for me you could not divorce sex from sexualilty.”
Hear hear, Lord Alli! We couldn’t have chosen better ourselves.

It's an interview with Phillip Aubrey: porn star, Spencer Reed's boyfriend, burp fetishist.
The COLT superstars joined a protest in Rome against the Catholic Church in order to make the claim that gay people are not pedophiles. There was a chihuaha involved.
I feel sorry for people with fetishes that can never be realized in real life. Take this Flickr user, who has to make do with his giants fetish using Photoshop.
I'm not one for bragging about intellectual accomplishments (it's something I learned from, you know, graduating with honors from Brown University), but Conner Habib is justifiably excited about his blurb in a book written by Carl Sagan's son.
