Gay Icon Spotlight
Over the years there has been many of gay icons. Judy Garland, Oscar Wilde, Miss Piggy and Jake Gyllenhaal. At this point your probably thinking, what is the criteria to be a gay icon? Well first, there is one thing that you don't need to qualify, and that is BEING gay.
Its 4 easy questions:
-Do they have glamour and flamboyance?
-Do they possess strength through adversity?
So without further ado, the first gay icon spotlighted:
Longtime radio and TV personality Larry King!
Does he have glamour and flamboyance?
Larry was a judge for the 1990 Miss America pageant. As well, has an extensive set of suspenders, and yes, even purple ones!
Do they possess strength through adversity?
Larry's father died when he was nine. This caused King to lose great interest in school, pick up smoking, and start scribbling hearts and stars on his notebooks. this raised many questions in 1945 Brooklyn.
Larry was portrayed as the ugly step-sister in the film "Shrek 2". He also always expressed interest in playing the lead in the Broadway production of 'Pink Flamingos' because he got off on the final act.
King's defense after being caught having an affair with a married woman?
"In my defense I did not know she was married and I did not know that it was a woman."
