Move over Kylie — Adele has been unveiled as a new gay “icon”.
The Rolling in the Deep singer picked up thousands of votes in a survey of GaydarRadio listeners.
She won more than 50 per cent of the 4,000 votes for the Pop Artist of the Year, while her nearest rival, Lady Gaga, got 18.9 per cent.
GaydarRadio’s Robin Crowley said: “Adele has had a fantastic year with numerous Grammys and Brit Awards, but we know that this is the accolade she has been waiting for.”
Other winners were rugby star Gareth Thomas who was voted Celebrity of the Year and gay Swedish footballer Anton Hysen who was named Hero of the Year.
