I had forgotten that Kelly Clarkson's American Idol audition was “Express Yourself,” but still, that seems a flimsy reason to think of her as a gay icon. That said, this young man's remembrance of how attached he was to her, and how much he associated her with his coming-out journey, is touching — and it is another example of the bond between closeted, eventually out gay boys and divas ...

Betty Buckley is a national treasure.
Unlike many others who have achieved that status, she isn't known for one project or even one medium—some immediately know her as “Grizabella” from the original Broadway production of Cats (for which she won her Tony), others think of her as the replacement mom on Eight is Enough in the '70s, still others go to her strong performance in the indelible film Carrie (1976).
The truth is, she's done even more than those already dissimilar and wonderful things. But if one gift can be singled out among the many, I would argue that it has to be her singing voice, which is a unique and mesmerizing instrument. And it only gets better.
If you need a reminder, Buckley has recently released Ghostlight, a beautifully nuanced collection of classic songs (produced by T Bone Burnett) that you feel like you're hearing for the first time thanks to her interpretive skills. She'll be performing them live in Palm Springs (January 17), Beverly Hills (January 24), Miami (February 27 & 28), Boston (March 13 & 14) and Fort Worth (March 28), as well as teaching a Song Interpretation & Monologue Workshop in L.A. (beginning January 18).
