One of the Gettys was.
People said one of the Koch family, now dead, was.
I believe Sid Richardson was (uncle to Perry Bass and source of the Bass Family fortune).

Tim Cook isn't a billionaire.

Facebook may valued at $100 billion. As a founder, he probably owns more than 1%.
In any case he's on the very top of my most eligible list for obvious reasons.

There is openly gay -- that is openly gay to their social group and business class which, if they are billionaires, is mostly invisible to the rest of us, and then there is publicly gay which, if they are billionaires, they got that way leading public lives in which the gay part may or may not have shared.

Colorado's constitution bans same-sex marriage so he's not 'married' in that state. There is a domestic partnership type arrangement in CO but it is not equal to marriage. But, yes his partner is lucky. I think he set up the last one in a business.

Malcolm Forbes was a gay billionaire, but an evil one, on the wrong side of every thing and one of our greatest enemies of all time, as well a particularly disgusting and depraved sexual predator.
So why hasn't Mr. Fred Koch done anything about the evil his brothers are doing to this country? Is he a rethuglicunt too?
And what of Dr. Iris Love (born Peggy Guggenheim)? Isn't she supposed to be a big dyke? Abby Rockefeller was a big lesbian too as I recall.
The rich gays in America in general include many rotten disgusting shitheads. No better than that gay Krupp who killed himself in Ischia in 1902.

Of course, it isn't just a problem for gays. Women and blacks who are rich involve an impressive collection of lowlifes and traitors too. It seems to be part of the minority experience that your rich will be off the charts evil, as a general rule.

Chris Hughes is not a billionaire, and he won't be win Facebook goes public. He owns a barely 1% stake in the company, and his fiancé already has him spending like there's no tomorrow. Jumo was a money loser and Freedom to Marry suffers from the same affliction as HRC (too many champagne benefits, not enough ground work).
He's probably worth $500M, but only on paper.

I wish I could marry an attractive one, one whom I'd fall in love with.
Tonight, he'd say, for example, "let's fly to Paris" or "how about we stay in and I bang your brains out?"
Either would be fine.
But it would be nice not to have to worry about auto repairs, a new fridge, retirement, cell phone bills, etc.

I know a lot of damn rich people and I can't think of one of them that is in a traditional, happy, long-term relationship/marriage. I just spent a week with someone who could make the list, and if he ever gets off his ass and something great with his money he will, and he's a barrel of neuroses who drives his boyfriend crazy with his jealousy and rants. I like him. But I don't have to live with him. Another guy lives south of the highway in Water Mill, has the Rolls convertible and rare Benz, nice guy. But I've never seen him in a serious relationship. Their boyfriends work for every cent that comes their way, whether it's in the sack or working as a "personal assistant."

Just because Colorado doesn't recognize marriage between two men doesn't mean they aren't married, R21.
If two men who were married in Massachusetts moved to Oklahoma, where the state doesn't recognize their marriage and doesn't even have domestic partnerships, they would still be married.
Their marriage may not be recognized by the state they live in, but neither does their marriage automatically dissolve when they cross state lines.
I know there are murky legal issues, like the two married California women who moved to Maryland and then wanted the state to grant them a divorce, but if they had a legal marriage ceremony, they're married, regardless whether some bigoted state government recognizes it.

So the straight Koch brothers scheme to plunge this country into a nightmare of rightwing violetn antigay dictatorship, and the gay Kochs flit about collecting antiques. No, there has to be more to it than that. It is too unflattering and stereotypical a picture of gay triviality. Something else is going on here, something within the Koch family.

David and Charles are the evil Koch brothers plotting to destroy America.

Wow. Portrait of an Evil Gay.
David Koch was the libertarian vice-presidential candidate running with Ed Clark in 1980.
"The Clark–Koch ticket promising to abolish Social Security, the Federal Reserve Board, welfare, minimum-wage laws, corporate taxes, all price supports and subsidies for agriculture and business, and U.S. Federal agencies including the SEC, EPA, ICC, FTC, OSHA, FBI, CIA, and DOE"
After the election, "Koch viewed politicians as 'actors playing out a script.'"
He has given so much money to Deerfield Academy that he is the only "Lifetime Trustee."

wow so this geffen guy is very powerful is hollywood i assume ..
Its so strange to me how some of the most powerful and influential people in hollywood are Gay/bisexual yet hollywood is still a very homo phobic place..
i mean we have very powerful gay/bi Major studio owners like geffen ,tv successful tv show creators, studio exec , directors and producers and yet out gay actors can almost not get any good roles almost anywhere in that industry..be it film or tv no matter how talented .
Yes its industry thats interested in maximizing profits so they want to be as appealing to middle america as much as possible but movies like Brokeback mountain and tv shows like will and grace show that is also a very huge audience for LGBT content orientated shows as long as they are good
You would think we would have our first Out Gay/bi A-list movie star by now sigh
still hoping that one day they make this talented gay man happen

The 'other' Koch brothers are ultra-corporatist Libertarians. That's about the destruction of government in favor of private interests, and can be tolerant of gays as long as they don't get uppity and demand 'special' government protections.

Chris Hughes had very little to do with the founding of Facebook. He was a roommate who did a little PR for the endeavor, while the other guys did the heavy lifting. That's why his post Facebook business ventures have been absolute busts.

Chris and Sean are, if anything, VERY parsimonious with their money. Giving $ 10,000 to the marriage initiative in SC as a goal match was viewed by many a downright cheap. Jumo was a charity. Freedom to Marry is a foundation of which Sean is President and solicits funding from other sources. Chris just bought the New Republic and is Publisher.
Sean was portrayed in one scene in the movie.
These two guys are the real deal. Totally devoted to each other. They met and fell in love when Facebook was operating out of a house in Palo Alto. If Chris had no money they would still be hopelessly in love with each other.

I'm currently reading an autobiography by Rory Cameron's sister. When he was in his twenties, and mummy, the Countess of Kenmare remarried, she turned over an entire shipping fortune to him, plus a Mayfair townhouse, and gave him carte blanche to rebuild and redecorate one of the FOUR mansions she owned on a peninsula of the Cote d' Azure. Perhaps not surprisingly this created a monster. The shipping fortune alone amounted to $16 million (this is in the early 50s), and mummy married into several more, so God knows how much there was in in the end. He died of AIDS in 1973.
AIDS also Billy McCarty Cooper who inherited the Douglas Cooper Australian sheep dip fortune. With all Cooper's Picassos and Cezannes the art alone would now be worth a billion.

It's off-topic, but Vanity Fair had an extensive profile on Brunei and Prince Jefri last year. While it would be nearly impossible for any other person to spend upwards of $5 BILLION on consumer goods he can't account for, Jefri did so. He had a garage filled with over a THOUSAND luxury cars, mostly customizes Rollses and Ferraris, many never driven a single mile.
Back on topic...
[quote]A little surprising to see designer Michael Kors included, when Calvin Klein, Marc Jacobs, and Tom Ford are not.
Kors's company went public last year, and since he's still a major shareholder in it, he's now among the superrich (and his brand sells more than Calvin, Marc and Tom Ford combined). Calvin sold his company eons ago and no longer has any stake in it, so gauging his current wealth status is difficult. Marc's primary employer is LVMH, and as such he's not independently wealthy. Tom Ford has a lovely collection of houses, but aside from that he's not terribly wealthy, considering he owns only a half-dozen boutiques that sell products even the 1% can't afford - more like the top 1% *of* the 1%.
The Koch brothers aren't gay, though they share the libertarian mindset that there's nothing wrong with being gay and the government shouldn't interfere in anyone's personal life. Both are married with multiple children, though yes, I of course understand that doesn't necessarily mean anything.
I'm shocked no one's mentioned Barry Diller yet. Regardless of his marriage to DVF, I don't think I've ever heard anyone attempt to argue that he's *not* gay.

I'm sure Mariah demanded a hefty cash fee for showing up -- on top of the $6 million in jewels and a private charter to fly her to and fro (btw it's a safe bet that every other American celebrity was flown in via private jet ... separate from Mariah's, of course, because the Queen doesn't travel with "minions"). The rest probably "settled" for the freebie jet trip, an on-the-house frock presumably from Browns or Harvey Nicks (with dedicated hair and makeup stylists for the ladies, because there is *no* chance Pam or Raquel put those 'dos together themselves), and deluxe accommodations at the Dorchester.
