Carol Channing On “Gay Icons”

Source: Greg in Hollywood

I can’t think of myself as an icon or legend. The moment you do, then you’re not. There are so many talented people that have been called a “gay icon” that have no similarities at all. So I don’t know that I can answer that. There will always be certain individuals that a minority will put on pedestals, but for different reasons. The gay community has had Sophie Tucker, Ethel Merman, Bette Midler, Cher, Madonna. The list is long, really. The only thing I can think of that they have in common is a desire to lift up the audience.
