Was Princess Margaret a Gay Icon with Some Gay Men? And Not All Gay Men Have Women Icons

Here’s another one of those stories that always seem to focus on just one segment of the gay male community. And the straight mainstream media always gets it wrong. To the point of being insulting with these tired old stereotypes of gay men. 

I will never understand this need to focus on gay icons, especially women as gay icons. I simply do not get it. However, I know that it’s a big thing in another segment of the gay community and that’s fine. But the problem is that particular segment of the gay community usually tends to be the most vocal and the rest of the world thinks we all have gay icons. All straight people think we love Cher or Judy Garland. And that is simply not true. Not all gay men think of certain women as icons. I don’t understand the fascination with people like Cher, Bette Midler, or even Liza. They are all fine entertainers and I like them, but I never thought of them as icons.  In fact, I never even thought of them at all. 

With that said, here’s a piece about whether or not Princess Margaret might be considered a gay icon.

Jennings, an openly gay priest who existed in real life, wasn’t the only unrequited love affair Margaret experienced, but his storyline this season, combined with Helena Bonham Carter’s already glamorously world-weary and borderline campy depiction, brings Her Royal Highness ever closer to gay icon status. In real life, as it turns out, Margaret’s relationship with gay men was more complicated than this season let on, often tricky but never quite so clueless.


Here’s more.  Once again, this article fails to mention that it’s important to understand that NOT ALL gay men are or were infatuated with Princess Margaret. I can promise you that I am one of those gay men who would be more infatuated with Prince Harry…with or without his magnificent beard, and I couldn’t care less about his female relatives.

“A wonderful story that I loved. The characters were well developed, and strong. Gus: A sweet young man. Doing something for all the wrong reasons. Craig: his boyfriend, he’ll go along with anything Gus say. Henry: Gus father a no nonsense man, who’s husband died last year. I enjoyed this story.”
