I don't even get involved in any who's-gay conversations anymore because I have a track record of crushing out on gay men and having no idea they're gay. For example, my husband is in disbelief that back during the Queen years I had no idea Freddy Mercury was gay. I adored him. And my first gay crush, though I hadn't a clue, was Roddy McDowall. And then there was Rex Reed. And the actor who played the bicyclist in the movie Breaking Away. I have gay friends who think I'm a dope but tease me that at least I can't be accused of stereotyping!

OMG, I know exactly how you feel!!

I am in total lust with Matt Bomer from White Collar(& he was my dream pick to play Christian in the movie version of 50 Shades of Grey, still kind of is lol) & when I found out he was gay, I was in denial for a while because I just couldn't handle such a hottie who played such a ladies man! I finally accepted it once I read him say something about his partner :( I was devastated LOL

I do believe that both CL & GR are openly gay. I wanna say they've both said it through various tweets or articles that I've seen, but I couldn't provide a link right off the back. IMO they both play very convincing strait guys to me...Kevin & Chloe just haven't been given the kind of romantic scenes that he had with Chloe or even Lily(they weren't romantic, but I was convinced he was after young girls lol)

Its so real

Noony, he is gorgeous and I love seeing him in a suit on the show--I can absolutely see why you are in lust! I just read, by the way, that the actor is going to be in an HBO production of The Normal Heart. I've never seen the play (about the early AIDS epidemic days). I don't get HBO but my friend in this building does get it and I'll ask if I can watch it there.

I agree about being convincing. I'd never have wondered. And I'm actually more surprised when I find out that someone on TV with an American accent is British or Australian!

Michael, Christian LeBlanc is openly gay, he outed himself on a daytime emmy awards show several years back while accepting and award, he is also very active in gay rights. You could probably find something to that effect if you were really interested in finding it. about the daytime emmy show where he came out, I think many in the audience were shocked or just unexpected for him to do that there.

It makes no difference to me at all, I think he is great!

Kevin/the actor's name appeared on a list put out by a site a year or so ago, I read it, I can not remember which site published it. I had many soap stars on it.

IDK, I don't think that is what is up with the chemistry between Chloe/Kevin, I never really thought either of them had much chemistry when anyone they have been paired with that I can think of.

Victor/EB is not gay he's been married to the same woman for like 40 to 50 years, not sure how many but it's alot of years, I saw them on an interview, I think they married like in 1965 or something.

I think a lot of lists just make guesses based on stereotypical traits and have no business stirring things up. I read some lists too and they included, among others, a lead female on YR, who has dated men as far as I have ever seen in pics. And all that really matters is how convincing the character portrayals are. One of my all-time favorite shockers, I have to say, is Portia de Rossi, Ellen's significant other--I'm sure many, especially men, were surprised and their hearts broke that now she'd never be their girlfriend!

ITA, I must admit, I remember seeing the daytime emmy awards show where CLB came out, my sister and I were watching it, I was surprised, my sister said "didn't you know that", I didn't because I always thought Michael and Lauren had such great chemistry. I even saw them in a Reba McEntire music video where they played a brides parents and were dancing at her wedding, it was sweet.

But some admit to being bisexual as well Crystal Chappell. Olivia, (GL)/Danni (B&B) openly admits she is bisexual.

But it makes no difference to me, to each his or her own. :)

Tons and tons of actors are gay but don't openly speak about it because they don't want their sexuality to be of any hindrance to their career.

With that said I do believe both GR and CLB are gay. I don't see what that would have to do with his love scenes with EH though. He's an actor, a damn good one but I just don't think the actors have romantic chem. Jana and Kevin had great chem.

I find it interesting to find out personal things about the actors. whos is gay and I also wonder about the natural color of some of their hair. I am still not sure what color Phyllis hair is...I mean her natural color??

Being in the arty world most of my life, I do find peoples sexual preferences interesting. Guess people in the arts talk about such things more. Interesting thing to me are the one's that are attracted to different sizes of people. Not judging , just commenting, some men are interested in bears ( if you guys know what this means), some are chubby chasers. All interesting to me. And by the way, you can't tell by looking at someone what their preferences are. That is why they or we talk about it. We are not all the same nor are we all attracted to the same but I do think most of us are attracted to shemar moore, whether we are straight or gay , white or black or whatever size we are attracted to. Now that is a hot man with a twinkle in his eye!
