Who is your GAY ICON?
My GAY ICON is definitely Margaret Cho. Not only is she a fellow Korean American, she's also a comic and a bad ass bitch that has been fighting for gay/queer rights and voices since day one. She's fearless, hilarious and everything I ever wanted to be as a young, closeted, presbyterian boy, sexually repressed and culturally stunted from the world.
