Closeted Celebrities: Where would they be if homophobia and the closet didn't exist?
Name some closeted celebrities and state what you think they'd be doing with their lives if homophobia and the closet ceased to exist
Whitney Houston - still alive, living with Robyn in wedded bliss!
Lindsey Graham - member of the Stonewall Democrats, running an antiques business in Charleston
Charlie Crist: living in a fabulous mansion in Key West, partying with oodles of boy toys
Luke Evans--proudly thanking his husband of 10 years on stage as he accepts his Tony Award
Taylor Lautner: the new Brent Corrigan.
Seann William Scott and Reese Rideout (Nick Dent): just married in Washington, but living and biking in Austin, Texas
Gayle and Oprah: Newlyweds!
Rupert Everett: still bitter.
Kaye Ballard and Lena Horne: friends and California neighbors living the lesbian life at age 80+. Kaye has gf; anti-social Lena no gf.
r6, at least he wouldn't be able to blame coming out for destroying his career
Rock Hudson and Roddy McDowall in "McMillian and Wife"
Without the time and energy wasted on beards, cults and lawsuits, Tom Cruise would be a capable respected actor.
"Without the time and energy wasted on beards, cults and lawsuits, Tom Cruise would be a capable respected actor."
Nope. He would probably be two steps ahead of the law for fronting some Ponzi scheme involving vitamins or nutritional supplements.
On the flipside, Suri Cruise would be Suri Klein.
Aaron Schock: Designer of a Lilly Pulitzer-esque clothing line featuring lots of brights!
In Hollywood, it's either pump ass or pump gas.
Henry Cavill and Tom Hardy would still be cavorting around London clubs, not giving a fuck who saw them messing around with their boyfriends.
Terry Dolan, Republican political operative who died of AIDS, would be a campaigner for marriage equality.
Bishop Eddie Long: Running an accepting church that welcomes gays
Ramon Navarro would have died peacefully in his sleep
Mariska Hargitay and her wife Maria Bello would be raising their 3 children.
John Travolta's boyfriend would be ready to leave him, because he won't stop hitting on masseusses.
Danny Locklin, the adorable dancer in Hello Dolly, would be married to his husband after having lived with him for 30 years already. Somewhere in the Bay Area, I think, where Danny could fly down to LA for his guest appearance on Glee, Smash. Or directing a dinner theatre production of Chorus Line. And his husband would be pummeling that gorgeous ass.
But let me think about this a bit more.
Jared and Jensen - Supernatural soulmates
Justin Bieber would be a transgendered teen, living peacefully somewhere in Saskatchewan.
Kayne and Frank Ocean have a huge wedding in Paris. Both men wearing tuxedos designed by Riccardo Tisci. Jay Z is the maid of honor and Beyonce is the flower girl.
George Clooney and Mark Wahlberg would be married. But they would probably have that Ike and Tina thing going on. Mark's a violent sociopath
Ryan Seacrest and Merv Griffith would have been an out proud couple.
My favorite thread in a long time!
Better, because the energy now spent on covering up could be channeled into creative and publicity opportunities. Hetero fans would still crush on cute and sexy performers just as they always did, with the added thrill of fantasizing that they have what it takes to seduce them into going straight. Gay and lesbian actors would be complimented on their convincing hetero love scenes. Pictorials of their storybook weddings and happy love nests would add billions to the economy as fans strove to recreate their tasteful effects.
Sorry, forgot to mention specific celebrities.
The world would thrill to the storybook wedding of Prince Harry and Tom Hiddleston.
Marky Mark would be starring in Amateur Straight Guy videos.
Yes. There wound be even if religion didn't exist. Look at the havoc Stalin caused and he was an Atheist. Man needs a scapegoat.
Oh, misread the title... I thought it read would homophobia exist if there was no closet. Where would they be? Probably openly gay. Not with women.

[quote]Lindsey Graham - member of the Stonewall Democrats, running an antiques business in Charleston
Were it not for homophobia, there would be no need for the Stonewall Democrats. The potential members would just be Democrats; there is no organization for Democrats with brown hair, for example.
Lani O'grady would be alive and happy with a long time GF
I also believe that there would be less f l am ers and bulldykes. Gay people will be just like straight people who happen to like the same sex that is it!!
Datalounge would not exist for many reasons
Has Scott O''Grady come out yet ?
Prince Charles and Tony Blair would be sharing a villa in the Costa del Sol in Spain.
Prince Charles would be able to stop living a life of perversion, committing bestiality with that horse he is living with, and finally have a healthy, normal (human) affair with one of the male servants.
Just because it's wearing a big hat doesn't mean we don't know it's a horse.
you could say the same thing about his sister Princess Anne
I've heard at one point or another that all the British royals are poofs. If only it were true for Harry!
I'd be on my return tour after coming back from retirement, on tour bus with five dogs that shit wherever they want while I, fat and happy as a clam, eat Philly Cheesesteaks and watch Breaking Bad with my butch wife. We will divorce in a year, then remarry in two. Even though she never moved out of the house.
Tom Cruise would be looking for the perfect Stepford Husband to be a Hollywood power couple with.
A bit O/T: I don't know why-- I'm not celebrity-crazy at all. And there have been so many celebrities who've had difficult lives and died from drug abuse, etc.. but every time Whitney Houston comes up, her death strikes a chord in me and feel genuinely sad... for a person I only knew from a distance.
Kevin Spacey would be a respected stage and screen actor who also runs a big London theatre. His late-night dog-walking stories however would be less elaborate.
Kevin Spacey is SUCH a liar. He was even kind of out back around 1991. I worked in a bookstore then as a teen and he came in twice. He wasn't that famous at this point. Both times he was clearly with a male "date"
Christopher Meloni would have a bejeweled dogcollar on,nothing else, with MY name stenciled in as owner.
Why would you think Graham would be a Democrat? He's a South Carolina conservative - not in 1950 but in late 20th early 21st century America.
Wentworth and Luke would have married.
Matt Bomer would be A-list.
Lee Pace would be Lee Armitage.
They'd be Mr and Mr Richard Armitage.
I'd still love tits and ass.
Homophobia and the closet would always exist regardless - religion, no religion - it doesn't matter. There will always be hate, there will always be cowards. Both are human nature.
I think Suri Cruise would be Suri Hartnett.
R56 Suri Hartnett: truth?
Her eyes look more like Hartnett's then Kleins. I just think she looks like Hartnett's kid. One thing for sure, she is not Tom's and he made sure that he and Katie were not married when she was born. His name is on the birth certificate but I didn't see his notarized signature.
Reeves would have sued Geffen, for "his half".
I'd much rather get fucked by Josh Hartnett than either Cruise or Klein. Much, much rather.
Suri looks so much like Katie IMO, I never think about who her father is. I'll look more carefully next time.
Me too, R60. I was actually jealous of Katie Holmes as I read that "Suri Hartnett". I love Josh Hartnett.
Queen Latifah - married to her gf and raising a baby together
Phyllis Schafly would gave worn beige -- like a good mother of the bridegroom -- when her son John married his partner. And Cardinal George would have been the principal celebrant at the nuptial Mass.
