Cher has long been considered an icon in popular gay culture.<sup class="reference">[49]</sup> She has been imitated by drag queens across the world for decades. Her transition to dance music and social activism in recent years has further contributed to her iconic popularity within the gay community.

The NBC sitcom Will & Grace acknowledged her status by making her the idol of gay character Jack McFarland. Cher guest-starred as herself twice on the sitcom, in 2000 and 2002. In 2000, Cher made a cameo on the show, in which Jack believed her to be a drag queen, and said he could "do" a better Cher himself. In 2002, she played God in Jack's imagined version of Heaven.

Cher's status may have been boosted by her support of her openly lesbian daughter Chastity Bono. Although not supporting Chastity immediately after she came out, Cher has since become one of the gay community's most vocal advocates.

In 1998, Cher was honored with a GLAAD Media Award (Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) and in November 1999, The Advocate named Cher one of the '25 Coolest Women'. In October 2005, the Bravo program Great Things About Being... declared Cher the number one greatest thing about being gay.

Her perseverance and longevity is the inspiration for the famous quote by gay impressionist Jimmy James: "After a nuclear holocaust, all that will be left are cockroaches and Cher". -sited from Wikipedia-

I really love Cher! She's my favorite diva, love her music and my favorite movie is Moonstruck... so romantic!

I need a story like Moonstruck, I need a man who bring me to the MET, see operas and things like that.

I grew up on Cher!!! (and Madonna) She is my fave singer and I like most of her music! I especially like how it's always remixed for clubbing. To be she is very beautiful and I love her style.
