Famous Men in the Closet

Politics/Sports/Business/Tech/Music/Hollywood - whatever? Who is gay/bi and not out?

Why would you think it's ok to out anyone? Even by speculation.

Per DataLounge every famous celebrity is gay and just not out. Most are tortured closet cases. This is a bedrock principle on which DL is based. Anyone positing any knowledge to the contrary will be immediately flamed and fraued.

On DL all famous men are gay, especially if they have played a gay man on film. No one on this thread has any first hand knowledge. I know of 2 first hand: John Travolta and Timothy Dalton. I’ve heard lots of second hand stuff over the decades- who knows. I also believe all that is in Scotty Bowers book about old Hollywood. Why? Because I knew two guys quite well who worked/networked with him in the late 70s. Scotty was a well known “secret” in LA for decades.
