dyfl replied to your post: Gaga and queerness

Lots to say about Gaga-as-gay-icon, but if I had to sum it up quickly I’d say we love her because she’s teaching/forcing the mass culture to enjoy pop events on the terms that gay culture enjoys them: Camp, dance/fuck-worthiness, and fabulousness.

This is a good distillation of the counter-argument and brings up a lot of issues about representation and culture v. identity that, again, I certainly hope someone else will tease out.
