I don't bother speculating about anyones sexuality, I can see why some do or may want to but it's not my cup of tea to speculate
To answer a question that's not been asked but which would be evident by my response - I think having young, popular, successful, gay role models is useful.
It's like if we imagined a time before television or access to visual media. It would be important for young black or young asian (or whatever) children to know the singer they heard on the radio was black or asian.
Doesn't impact upon their talent or their value as a performer, but to know is often useful. Particularly if you're talking about a group of people facing societal difficulties.
