I kind of doubt he has a boyfriend. He seems to be part of the Oprah/Gayle/Tyler Perry "we'll focus on good works to deny our sexual impulses" brigade.
Mebbe so R4. But he is gay, believe it.
I agree he's gay r5, just not sure if he is "active"

You know, I've posted some minor "scoops" on DL that I'd stumbled across just surfing, and the next day they've been written up as articles on Jezebel or Gawker. Clearly, several of the writers from those blogs hang out here.
R8 is right. But he is ambitious more than anything else, so if he needs to stop having sex with men to further his career, he will.
I dated him when we were at Stanford.
Body? Cock size? What was he into sexually?
r10. You would be doing us all a favor if you revealed your gender, natch?
I get a gay vibe from him, but I hear that he likes white women, which could we "worse" than being gay with the black vote...so he keeps it on the DL.
Obviously with a white woman. Consider this: if he were gay, couldn't he get a black lesbian with political ambitions of her own to beard? There's a ton of ambitious, smart, lesbian black women.
Gay men also would still sleep with him even if he had a beard.
BUT a white woman wouldn't put up with that.
It would make sense that Cory Booker is a bottom. He is Wall Street's butt boy.
r12, I am male.
Whenever a man dodges the question "are you gay?" with the shell game of why should it matter/if someone thinks it so be it, then tries to reframe the conversation to "things that matter"...GAY
[quote]The mayor of Newark, New Jersey Cory Booker, who is the Democratic nominee in the state’s US Senate special election has surprised some this week amid speculation about his sexuality.
In an interview with the Washington Post, Booker said: ”People who think I’m gay, some part of me thinks it’s wonderful because I want to challenge people on their homophobia… I love seeing on Twitter when someone says I’m gay, and I say, ‘So what does it matter if I am? So be it.’”
He was asked on Wednesday by a Star-Ledger reporter to clarify his point, to which he responded: ”It should not matter,” he said. “That was my point.” He said he was to focus on the Senate race against former Bogota Mayor Steve Lonegan, the Republican nominee.
He's busy. He's evasive. He changes the subject. He's gay.
If he were straight, he would just say it.
"The article links to a Jezebel piece, which quotes Datalounge."
Ah, Jezebel; maintaining the high standards of reliably sourced journalism, as always.
He was on Chris Hayes' show last night, maintaining that his sexuality shouldn't matter in this campaign, but making a point to say that there's plenty of evidence of his heterosexuality out there. I do think he's straight.
Why is he playing this game?
Who does he think he is, Matthew Morrison?

He said it in the past when he was first running for mayor.
Personally, I love Cory and will vote for him.
But as a fan, I attended an event at an ice cream shop on the Jersey board walk this summer, in which he appeared to scoop out cones.
First time I saw him out of a suit, shirt and tie and he was rather disappointingly chubby and out of shape and his taste in jeans, polo shirt and sneakers was definitely that of a straight frat boy. If looks were very everything, there was no gay vibe whatsoever.
Nevertheless, he was charming and patient with everyone who came in to say hello.
McGreevey was straight. Until he....
If he is gay and trying to stay closeted (which I personally believe is likely the case), then I just developed newfound respect for his social media PR skills.
He got a (female) stripper to leak Twitter banter between him and her, and he also got another woman to fun-argue with the stripper about becoming his first lady. It made the first page of the Times's website. And none of these "leaks" can be traced to his camp!
Well done, Cory. Well done.
Nope, R21 hit the nail on the head. He likes WHITE WOMEN.
SKANKY, TWITTER-USING WHITE WOMEN!
His poll numbers have been dropping; this shocking news may seriously cost him the election, if not now then in a few years if he wins.
