It is not the fact he is gay that has made me lose respect (I luv lots of gay men on telly Graham Norton, Alan Carr, John Barrowman) Its the fact he is lying about it.
Is he gay? How do you actually know, apart from your own suspicions based on what you see on TV and read in the gutter press like The Sun and Heat. So he's a bit camp, not married and cant hold down a relationship. It doesn't mean he is gay.
In fact have you not just libelled him by saying "its not the fact he's gay" your saying it like it is fact?
