I don't know who he is but good on him. It can't be easy being a professional basketball player (and a black man in America) and coming out as gay. Hopefully this is a sign that it's becoming more accepted in the 'manly' sports.

(There are some infuriating comments on the BBC under this story, think the DMers have gone over.)

Can't agree more, those who said it shouldn't be a story at all viewed gays with utter contempt.

To be fair, how many of us in the UK (who don't follow the sport), would know many/any NBA player names, though?

Was that in response to my post?
Not particularly. Why, do you recognise yourself?

Btw, if Cliff's friend/partner (let's not beat about the silly bush) is no longer in the priesthood then they can do what they want without the tentacles of doom interfering one would think.

I know a handful, but I follow US sport generally quite a bit.

I can't believe Russell Tovey is gay. Did not predict that one! Do we think he is a top or a bottom?

I believe michael ball could be gay read a recent interview where all he talked about was his dogs and family.
nothing to do with his wife which seemed odd to me.
.
Michael Ball doesn't have a wife. He lives with a woman (old enough to be his mother) but it's widely assumed to be a platonic relationship, although he doesn't object if people get the impression they're an item. There's no evidence of heterosexuality in his past.

Someone who puts some energy and enthusiasm into "it" instead of lying there like a sack of spuds.

Wikipedia says:

"Ball lives with the former presenter of Ready Steady Go!, Cathy McGowan. They met around 1989 and have lived together since 1992."

I live with my flatmate who I met 10 years ago and have lived together with since. Nothing about her being his wife or partner.... and I think that vagueness is deliberate. The telling bit of the story of the house fire was that they clearly don't share a bedroom. But Ball is happy to make it look like he's in a relationship (with a woman in her 70s remember) as a recent Daily Mail article showed when he had a new album to flog.

I think it's sad to be honest that he can't come out his career is so well established that he has nothing to lose.
except his female fanbase i'm guessing this is why cliff & barry manilow have never come out.

Vinny Jones is openly gay I have been told. That strong man image is just a front. He is a real sweetie.

I've heard this rumour on and off for years now. Beard Club on Twitter, bless it it's still clanking along, has just run a picture of him necking some lady outside a club or something under a disdainful beard! headline so obviously it believes it's a PR stunt.

I dunno about Vinnie. He's very lowkey and private.

I have to laugh at Lance Bass and his completely ignorant One Direction comments. "Statistically one of them is probably gay"

Since when have 1 in 5 people been estimated to be gay. It's estimated that 1 in 10 people are, and that has been proved wrong many times. Hypothetically, if 10% of the world's population is gay, that doesn't mean in every group of 100 people that 10 must be gay. Ignorance kills me

Anyway, Vinnie Jones is not gay. He is however, very gay friendly and has always supported the community, which is nice. A lot of macho men are afraid to do that.

Yeah, he's wrong. Everyone knows that at least 2 of them are gay.

I'd take a hunch on 3 of them.

I don't think those figures work for the showbiz world though. Showbiz attracts a lot of gay guys. But no that doesn't necessarily mean there's a gay one in One Direction. But I think maybe Lance knows more than he's saying.
I'd guess there's one gay and one bisexual in One Direction. But only from rumours.
