Wentworth Miller, Robbie Rogers, Steve Grand: Who Is The Next Gay Icon?

This year, the batch of eligible queer icons expanded drastically when several high-profile celebs came out of the closet. Actor Wentworth Miller, soccer stud Robbie Rogers, NBA player Jason Collins, WWE superstar Darren Young, former Disney starlet Raven-Symoné and longtime rumor magnet Jodie Foster are all a part of the big gay club now. But who had the Closet Door Bustdown of the Year? Vote now in the 2013 Queerties.

Of course, we already had amazing out-and-proud candidates in the spotlight, including hunky singer Steve Grand, Orange is the New Black actress Laverne Cox and sexpot Carmen Carrera. Vote now for whom of these will be the Next Big Queer!

With every positive portrayal of LGBT lives, there comes the primetime party-poopers wanting to rain on our gay parade. Who was the biggest Douche of the Year? Vladimir Putin, Pope Benedict, Scott Lively, Robert Mugabe or Bryan Fischer?

      HIgh profile celebs? I cannot stop laughing! What? No Lance Bass? Robbie Rogers is only a celeb per Queerty. What a tragic list. We have more to offer than this lot. Please Queerty, just stop!

      @sportsguy1983: You’re just as bad as Westboro and the Phelps family. I honestly hope someone kicks you in the mouth and breaks your face so that you look like the piece of shit that you actually are.

      @sportsguy1983: Given how you look Sportsguy 1983 I wouldn’t be taking the mick out of anyone else.


      Mistake of using same account name cross sites, but I don’t expect intelligence from the likes of you.

      Went to the site and Jodi’s name. I’m done. If that’s a gay icon, then the world is over.

      He’s handsome, talented and looks and sounds like a really decent guy so he can pop my champagne anytime he feels like it. What a gorgeous man!

      @sportsguy1983: Christ what a total [email protected] dbag you are. Strangely you remind me of another dick going by Miagoodguy. He seems to be on an as$hole hiatus at the moment…perhaps you should follow suit.

      And with a face and (mis)shape like yours, you are the last schlub to tear anyone down.

      Just because you are barely famous and gay doesn’t make you an icon. Nor does coming out after your bank account is full and your career is over make you an inspiration. Ricky Martin would have been a role model forever if he had come out when his song was number 1, not a dozen years later when he was pedalling a bio.

      Ha! Yeah. It is jealous to point the truth. I guess I missed the memo that says we can’t criticize good looking gay men.

      I just don’t see what you’ll be gaining by “criticizing” them. He’s a lovely man and he’s obviously talented because his fan base grows bigger by the day. Just hit the gym already. What a douche!!!

      All of the suggested are great role models. Any one of them could make a icon.
      But when someone emerges as an undoubted icon, I think we’ll all recognize it instantly.

      Why do we need an “icon” at all? Each and every one of us has within him or her the capacity for greatness, whether on a large scale or small. We need to start seeing ourselves as “icons” and stop all this phony hero worship.
