Freddie, of course, yeah! He was above average. Who can't adore Freddie's work? Are we nuts? I also like a lot Elton John, another genius, and from the gay women, K.D. lang is great.

I think more people should listen to her songs because her work is special. It shouldn't matter how she looks. She is awesome as a singer. People shouldn't judge her for her masculine looks. Her songs are very emotional, and she has great quality as an artist.

Freddie Mercury is the biggest African/Indian rock star in history. He's also the first gay rock god. It doesn't matter to some people, but I think it would matter to Freddie.

2 Rob Halford Robert John Arthur "Rob" Halford is an English singer and songwriter, who is best known as the lead vocalist for the Grammy Award-winning heavy metal band Judas Priest and famed for his powerful wide ranging operatic voice.

The lead vocalist of Judas Priest is gay, and he has stated that. He has revealed, "I'm just a gay man who sings in a heavy metal band." However, Halford is also one of the songwriters of Judas Priest.

He's the most influential gay singer of all time. He has been publicly bisexual since 1976 when he was in his early 20s.

One of the best singers of all time.

4 Adam Lambert Adam Mitchel Lambert is an American singer, songwriter and stage actor. Since 2009, he has sold over 2.5 million albums and 5 million singles worldwide.

He's one of the best singers alive. Why is he just number five?

Love him so much and I'm thrilled that he is in the top two.

5 George Michael Georgios Kyriacos Panayiotou, known professionally as George Michael, was an English singer, songwriter, record producer, and philanthropist who rose to fame as a member of the music duo Wham!.

Freddie Mercury actually sucks. In my opinion, George Michael has a more beautiful voice and better, more addictive songs than Bohemian Rhapsody. I really don't know why Freddie Mercury is considered the best of all when his music wasn't so addictive.

George Michael should be at the number one spot. This man sings with his heart and soul. No one can touch him. Love you George.

He was the greatest gay icon ever.

Cool music, easy listening, and gives a blues feel.
