KC of the Sunshine Band

At what point did you realize he was queer?

by Sylvesterreply 3704/16/2013

Give It Up video

by Sylvesterreply 102/16/2013

Now he was one who surprised me. Didn't detect a thing.

Massive gaydar failure.

by Sylvesterreply 202/16/2013

Sexy as hell

by Sylvesterreply 302/16/2013

He used to be so fucking HOT!

by Sylvesterreply 402/16/2013

Father Time is a bitch

by Sylvesterreply 502/16/2013

Is he out? His Wiki page mentions nothing about his personal life.

by Sylvesterreply 602/16/2013

He hit the wall in the 80s. (rather early)

But he was very cute in the 70s.

by Sylvesterreply 702/16/2013

I got a sense he was gay from the very beginning.

Some people are - or in his case [italic]were[/italic] - TOO pretty to be straight.

by Sylvesterreply 802/16/2013

He definitely went from hot to not.

by Sylvesterreply 902/16/2013

I thought he was really cute but didn't know he was gay.

by Sylvesterreply 1002/16/2013

Just now?

by Sylvesterreply 1102/16/2013

We know the co-founder of the band is gay, (arrested for sex with a 13-year-old boy) but are we sure about KC?

by Sylvesterreply 1202/16/2013

I never thought KC was gay but he was so cute in the 70's - I loved watching him on American Bandstand or Soul Train - he always had that big smile and was so enthusiastic.

by Sylvesterreply 1302/16/2013

We were ALL so young and sexy in 1972.

by Sylvesterreply 1402/16/2013

Must've been something I read on-line, so no sooner than about 2000. Although the band's Behind The Music special detailed how close he was with that Fitch guy. And that he went into a severe depression after they split. Before hearing the rumors, I think I might've guessed they were more than friends from that BTM special.

by Sylvesterreply 1502/16/2013

Used to live in his neighbourhood. Gay as Ricky Martin.

by Sylvesterreply 1602/16/2013

I didn't know he was gay

by Sylvesterreply 1702/17/2013

Saw him with his dick out an adult theater.

by Sylvesterreply 1802/17/2013

At least I thought it was him (it was dark, I'm nearsighted).

by Sylvesterreply 1902/17/2013

Do tell! Nice cock?

by Sylvesterreply 2002/17/2013

[quote]At what point did you realize he was queer?

Right after Dick Clark said "Please welcome...."

by Sylvesterreply 2102/17/2013

That outfit that the mature K C is wearing does NOTHING for him, which I think is a lot of the problem.

by Sylvesterreply 2202/17/2013

I love KC and his music which I grew up with. I also didn't know he was gay at the time, but have heard he is since.

by Sylvesterreply 2302/17/2013

KC was so cute and fuckable back in the day; I totally would've hit it.

by Sylvesterreply 2402/17/2013

I wish the skintight jeans of the 70s would make a comeback, that was such a hot look.

by Sylvesterreply 2502/17/2013

He never came out, did he? How do we know he's gay (I had a sneaking suspicion, but still...)

by Sylvesterreply 2602/17/2013

No he never came out, and it's doubtful he ever will. I've always heard he's a Republican, and if that's true he probably doesn't even approve of out and proud types. Just another sad closet-case.

by Sylvesterreply 2702/17/2013

r26, well he was always rumored to be partnered with his musical partner, co-founder of the band. Somebody Fitch, I believe is the name. And that guy got outed by being arrested for sex with a male minor. So that part of the rumor is confirmed, Fitch is gay. Meanwhile KC has never been linked with any women. It doesn't take Einstein to do that math.

by Sylvesterreply 2802/17/2013

I saw him a couple of years ago in a private Las vegas Concert. So sad. He could barely move, I'm guessing because of age or drugs, so he kind of sat behind his piano, while a bunch of solid gold dancer types did all the work.

He was soaked in flop sweat before the first song was halfway through.

My ticket entitled me to a backstage meet up, but I was told at the last minute that he was unavailable. Bartender told me that usually means drunk/coked out etc.

by Sylvesterreply 2902/17/2013

You're onto something, R2.

He was one of the ones interviewed in that Secret Disco Revolution documentary and you would never know unless you were told. He just came across like a typical bloated old straight guy, he reminded me a lot of Albert Brooks.

So that's why he hasn't come out, he doesn't have to in the opposite way Richard Simmons doesn't have to. Shame as he was hot and talented, would be great to claim him.

by Sylvesterreply 3004/16/2013

He was recently on an ep of Paula Deen's show.

by Sylvesterreply 3104/16/2013

He always pinged for me. I was a kid in the mid-70s and thought he was cute back then (he got fug quickly though). I saw him on The Midnight Special one night and I just knew he was family. I met him in the early '80s (he was drunk or something) and he was really "out there." By that time, he was becoming kind of homely and I wouldn't have hit it even if I'd had a chance. Major flamer.

by Sylvesterreply 3204/16/2013

He's privately openly gay and publicly closeted. He stays publicly closeted to appease his straight soccer mom and great granny fans. Everyone in Miami knew about KC and Fitch being lovers as far back as 1973/74 (before they hit the big time). Most of the music industry was aware of it. I found out from a female singer who was hugely popular in the '70s who has been a lifelong friend of mine. She said it was an open secret in the music biz.

Helen Reddy? I want to meet her.

by Sylvesterreply 3404/16/2013

Honey ... any man in the 70s who was singing about shaking one's BOOTY has to be questioned...

by Sylvesterreply 3504/16/2013

Who's the 70s lez? Helen Reddy? Olivia Newton John? Linda Ronstadt? Dolly Parton?

by Sylvesterreply 3604/16/2013

Years ago, somebody posted on DL about chatting with him online. It may have been an M4M AOL chatroom, and the poster indicated that KC was quite open about his identity.
