Jan 30, 2007 Quickie Link: LGBT History Month full of surprises -- By Tony Grew
By vanrozenheim

A recent poll of over 5,000 gay people found that Kylie Minogue is their goddess, and that the gay community seems to worship straight women who can hold a tune more than the real heroes that have made their lives better. Guess where the first homosexual on the list appeared? 19th place. There were no lesbians on the list. That means only 18% of "gay icons" are in fact gay. A depressing statistic. A person ignorant of their own history cannot really know themselves.
How can you be proud of how far we have come if you don't know how we got there?
