A gay icon is a popular culture entertainer, usually a woman, who has a significant following among the gay community, particularly among gay men. The term dykon (dyke icon) is sometimes used in reference to gay icons that appeal primarily to lesbians.

Although icon entertainers usually embrace their homosexual fans, most of them are heterosexual in sexual orientation. Along with being entertainers, many gay icons have been subject to high-profile personal tragedy, come-from-behind success or an untimely, tragic death.

It should also be noted that status as a gay icon does not necessarily mean that all gay people are fans of a celebrity. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gay_icon [Nov 2004]
