Beyoncé is this generation's gay icon. She is a drag queen favorite, but some have crticized her for not being as vocal about her gay fans. Nonetheless, in 2006 Bey told Instinct Magazine about her late uncle who was gay, "He was my favorite person in the whole world. I never mixed Christianity with how I felt (about him). I am about faith and spirituality more so than religion, doing right by others and not judging."
