In introducing Kylie Minogue at
Saturday's 25th annual GLAAD Media Awards in New York
City, Boy George declared that she put the “amp” in “camp.”
“Gay people absolutely love her,”
the 52-year-old Boy George said.
“I have the pleasure of seeing her
probably more times than any other artist, weirdly. I'm always in

Minogue returned the compliments,
calling Boy George an “inspiration.”
“In fact, the first concert I ever
went to in my hometown of Melbourne, Australia was to Culture Club.

hair. Thought I was it. I was probably 14, and definitely not it,”
Minogue told the crowd.
Before performing, Minogue said that
acceptance of the LGBT community “was natural to me.” (The video
