Former Instinct coverboy and pop sensation Will Young has been named the top role model for gay youth in Great Britian, according to a survey conducted on the website of UK gay rights org Stonewall.
Says Stonewall Chief Executive Ben Summerskill, "Pop culture is hugely influential to young people so it's encouraging to see more openly lesbian, gay and bisexual British pop stars. Joe McElderry is already recognised as a role model so the scene is now set for him to become every bit as popular with young gay people as Will Young."
Allison Goldfrapp took second place in the poll, while Joe McElderry, the 2009 winner of X-Factor who came out in July, placed fourth.
