This is what an official gay icon looks like

Hotty McHot

Well, we say official…

London’s glittering faggeratti – the great, the good, the not-quite-so-great-or-good of bumming and bumping-front-bottoms – have been asked to put forward nominations to Her Majesty’s National Portrait Gallery of who they think should be featured in a major exhibition of gay icons.

Little Joe Dallesandro here, the straight star of many of naughty old Andy Warhol’s films, has been picked (by Alan Hollinghurst of Circle of Beauty fame) as have Joe Orton (fab writer picked by Stonewall leading man Ben Summerskill), kd lang, Maya Angelou… even Nelson Mandela (who? what? when? where? for why?)

No Kylie (hooray!) and no Madonna (boo!) and some Will Young *bemused silence*

The exhibition will be on at the NPG (that’s what we call it, too busy to say the whole thing) from 2nd July. And if you want to see why Mr. Hollinghurst selected Little Joe, jump over the jump…

Not-so-little Joe

  2. So much fun. Especially when attached to man of Little Joe’s stature.

  4. The mensrooms will be busier than the galleries during this one, mark my words.
