    We may not have a building to house this. But.....The gay community is not without one! As does the Str8 Community.

    Head, flmmer would be Sir Elton John.

    If Hitler was gay. Then he would head the Hall of Shame. With others such as Jeffry Dahmer.

    John Wayne Gacy was Bi, as he had two wives. So him, the Bi community get in their wing.

    Whom would you put in the hall of fame, and in what hall?

    Lets not forget gay men have a long history of tagging str8 men, as gay, and wanting too put them in the hall of fame, to promote their agenda. So no bastardisations of str8 men like David Bec.

    I wanna put John Waters in a room, but I can't figure out what the room would be. Dog poop/transexual ax-wielding maniac room?

    Elton John is performing in my town this weekend. Wonder if he needs a new poolboy??? Maybe I could be his Rocketman, the One to Save His Life Tonight, follow him down the Yellow Brick Road, and to the ends of the world in the Circle of Life.

    Or maybe all the unseasonably warm and sunny weather has gone to zdrew's head.

    All this talk about Elton John prompts me to post this (sorry--off topic, I know). But actually, the "Little Britain" show might go in the gay hall of fame. And hey, watch Elton on this: seems like he might not have known all the questions he was going to be asked.



    This is REALLY funny. Enjoy!

    Alan Turing, of course.

    Did anybody say Freddie Mercury?

    Michaelangelo, Leonardo, Newton, and Alexander in the "probable" wing.

    Not sure what to do about James Buchanan.

    Saturn/Zeus (in the fucks-anything-that-moves wing)

    Some sort of generic southwest shaman

    Greg Berlanti

    For bringing a dignified face to gay men in his shows (Brothers & Sisters, Jack McPhee character from Dawson's Creek) and terrific movie (Broken Hearts Club). He'll undoubtedly continue this streak for many more shows and films to come.

    GQjock, you listed Robert Baden Powell, so, what evidence do you have that he was gay or bi? Inventing the Boy Scouts shouldn't be the only criteria. Is there anything else?

    To All; I submit Baron Frederiech Wilhelm von Steuben.
    Although not really a Baron, it looked good on his resume' to Benjamin Franklin.

    In the dark horse category, I'd like to nominate Baron von Steuben, the man who literally wrote the first U.S. military training manual for the Revolutionary Army under George Washington.

    How's that for irony?

    Arggg, I didn't see that you had posted this just minutes before me. Guess I should read the thread before posting.

    No concrete evidence exists that Baden-Powell was gay (he destroyed as much of his personal correspondence as possible before his death); however, several recent biographers, like Michael Rosenthal in The Character Factory: Baden-Powell's Boy Scouts and the Imperatives of Empire (1984), argue that he was a repressed homosexual.

    Much of the evidence for Baden-Powell's homosexuality can be found in Tim Jeal's monumental and definitive biography, Baden-Powell (1989), in which Jael states frankly:

    "The evidence available points inexorably to the conclusion that Baden-Powell was a repressed homosexual, (... but) he managed to follow Plato's prescription glorifying the love of man for man, or man for boy, while remaining physically chaste."

    Jeal gives several detailed instances of Baden-Powell's pleasure in seeing naked boys, his emotional enjoyement gained from living alongside them, and his delight in contemplating the clandestine "artistic" nude photography of boys which was at that time circulating among English pederastic public school circles.

    I'm not sure where you derived your list from, GQ, but Andrew Cunanan doesn't belong in a Hall of Fame, or Jim Jones or Roy Cohn either.

    Also, I don't think Blake Edwards is gay. He's been married to Julie Andrews like forever, and while that doesn't prove anything, I've never even heard his name mentioned before in the Hollywood gay gossip circles.

    Also, you list George Gordon and Byron separately. They are the same person.
