Way back when this site started peole were drooling over:
  • Aaron Carter
  • Taylor Hanson
  • Jonathan Taylor Thomas
  • Elijah Wood

And that was just a few.  Jaxsper Finn wrote a whole slew of fan fiction about Hanson, the band, and was raided by Hanson;s lawyer, so the story goes.

Today, who do we have as candidates for drool?
  • Ronan Parke, who has grown into a good looking young man?
  • Carson Lueders?
  • Troye Sivan?

Who else?

Or have gay teenagers moved on, somehow, and found each other? Maybe the Aaron Carter fascination was based on tougher times when it was safe to fantasise about an impossible dream?

Well, I think the boyband One Direction has something of a following.  Other than that, I don't know too many current teen celebs that have a huge following (not like Aaron Carter had - going off of some celebrity fanfic like on Nifty, you'd think he'd been regularly shagged by his brother Nick, the other members of Backstreet Boys, and practically every guy who'd ever been on the Backstreet Boys tour bus for more than 15 minutes).

Justin Bieber might be one (or may have been one, once upon a time, depending on whether or not he could still be argued as being relevant).

Looking over the gay/celebrity section of Nifty, I don't see too much standing out in the area of teen celebs, though how much you might want to view that as an indicator I don't know.  (Asa Butterfield has come up a little bit, though.)

Indeed. Mr. Bieber is now just a few months shy of the quarter century mark!

In the mid 1990's I was in love with Joey Lawrence when he was in "Blossom" and later "Brotherly Love" (sitcoms in the USA). His younger brother Matt was hot too. 😀

It seems like there is no-one today, just nostalgia.

I wondered about William Franklyn-Miller, but he is just handsome, not a gay drool icon.

Is it that the phenomenon has passed?

Troye Sivan is def a gay teen idol.  Most of his work has been in music, but he has also been an actor.
most recently a small role as a gay teen in Boy Erased...in theaters in the US now. Was also in Spud with 
John Cleese a few years ago.  He has a pretty big following.  He's done a variety of YouTube videos too.

While you are right, and he is, and he is easy on the eye, he is not the same type of 'drool over' icon that the demonstrably heterosexual pretty boys were 15-20 years ago

I'm finally getting around to a response, a few months late! The following are not necessarily huge idol names, but rather some personal current favorites:

Model Boys - these boys are all adorable: Patrick Michael Heaney, Francisco Lachowski, Freddie Ransom, Landon Cole, Manu Rios, Mitch Hewer, Alex Ruygrok, and Alec Golinger. 

Also, many singers, such as Charlie Lenehan (of Bars and Melody), Benjamin Lasnier, Carson Lueders, Cody Simpson, and Lenni-Kim (check out his sexy "Miraculous" and "Yolo Live" on Youtube). 

Another singer, Max Jendrzezak, a.k.a. Max Angel, has young-age videos on Youtube such as "Capitaine Abandonne" and "Tout Va Bien."  He also has recent sexy, buff pictures on a number of Instagram pages such as MaxAngel_Officiel and MaxAngel_Live.
 
One of the most promising new faces is a young teen singer from Sweden, Theoz Theodor Haraldsson. Check out his great Youtube video entitled "Helt Ensam Pa Skara Sommarland." Also, check out his Theoz Instagram page, for hundreds of great photos. He is still young but has great potential. Timmy uploaded a picture of him on his nerdyhottubexpert Tumblr page. As you can see, he's a stunner:

The list is interesting, but there are no names that stick out in the same manner that, say, Aaron Carter, or Talyor Hanon did twenty or so years ago
