Yet another amazing find on our 40th anniversary microsite: Advocate film critic Kyle Buchanan talks to the newest wave of gay icons about the trials and tribulations of following in the footsteps of Cher.

For our 40th anniversary, Advocate film critic Kyle Buchanan sat down with the new vanguard of gay icons--including JD Samson, Ed Droste (pictured above), and Beth Ditto--to talk about the influences that have made them who they are. For these young trailblazers who came of age during a time of unprecedented visibility, their own icons are vast and varied.

Check out our brand-new interviews for the answers to the following questions:

* Who was a card-carrying member of the Melissa Etheridge fan club?

* Who felt things click when he set eyes on Grace Slick?

* Whose style icon is Miss Piggy?

* And who's convinced that the movie Heathers has enacted a terrible curse?

For all those details and many more, check out the new additions to our Iconography section.
