Is Ahmed Shihab-Eldin Gay?

Does anyone know for sure? I can't find anything really conclusive, one way or another. He covers many, many gay-related stories.

All I know is this: He is absolutely breathtakingly beautiful.

So...nobody knows?

He sho' is pretty.

by Anonymousreply 210/24/2013

I was trapped on an Amtrak train with him last night - discovered via Twitter. Tried to find him but the train was packed in the club car as everybody was frustrated and buying booze. He was quite funny. His FB pic is of him and his sister and he is fucking adorable.

He doesn't sound so butch.

How tall is Ahmed? Me thinks he has a HUGE one.

My friend has seen Ahmed half naked and "cruising shamelessly" at his gym. Says he's very hot and very gay.

Nice work, R12. I wonder who Jack Gray is.

I thought he was the guy who got kicked out of Saudi Arabia for being too good-looking.

He could be Adam Levine's Arab brother. If you like one, you'll like the other.

He goes on and on in this video and doesn't really make a lot of sense when talking about racism.

And is gay as a goose. Doesn't have a good speaking voice.

Major homo. I bet he has a thick, juicy cock.

[R6] I watched one of his lengthy interviews and he seemed to be shamelessly flirting with me every time he looked into the camera. That man knows how to work it!

There's a gay black sports guy he interviewed about sport stars coming out and it was plain to see Ahmed wanted him. I've wondered if they hooked up later.

r15, Ahmed looks nothing like fugly soulless Adam Levine. Ahmed is pure sensual masculine Arab beauty. I usually hate gayvoice, but his gayvoice is so seductive. I also love his political positions.

He's openly gay. And so successful for his age it hurts

Another hot openly gay Arab is Hamed Sinno, the lead singer of the band Mashrou Leila, who are huge in Lebanon and Palestine. And yes he is fully accepted by his deeply religious Muslim family.

by Anonymousreply 3211/04/2013

Really openly gay? His Instagram photos with countless beautiful women seem to attempt to have an "I'm straight" vibe. Photos with two beautiful women with a caption about how lucky he is.

I still believe he's gay but I don't see openly gay.

by Anonymousreply 3311/29/2013

Ok, he's openly gay in his private life. Maybe in his public life, i.e. social media accounts, he maintains a veneer of ambiguity

by Anonymousreply 3411/29/2013

I'd still snack on his brown sausage.

Just for nostalgia, here's an old clip of beautiful Ahmed leading a discussion on the topic of 'Gaybro':

by Anonymousreply 4412/27/2013

Sorry to disappoint but I know Ahmed well and he's straight. I can see how he comes across as gay as he's from the Middle East where guys are naturally warm with other men, combined with his liberal politically correct attitudes about gender politics. Anyone who is dreaming about getting in his pants is just dreaming.

by Anonymousreply 4501/05/2014

He thinks the Munich Olympics were great, not for the athletic competitions but for the terrorism.

r45, post proof. He appears tres gay. And hot.

by Anonymousreply 4701/06/2014

R45: er, would a straight man, regardless of how liberal he is, enthusiastically take part in a discussion about the 'top/bottom' dichotomy in the gay community, to the extent of lamenting on air about how 'limiting' such labels are?

by Anonymousreply 4801/06/2014

Please. The guy's gay as a goose.

by Anonymousreply 4901/06/2014

R45 is lying. Ahmed is gay. He has a boyfriend named Carlo who lives in Beirut.

by Anonymousreply 5002/09/2014

And he linked to his friend's blog a few months ago on his Facebook, a blog about life in Beirut, in which she repeatedly referred to him as her "gay friend" or "gay best friend."

It's funny how all the commenters on his instagram think he's straight. Do they have absolutely no gaydar? There is one woman who posts on every picture of him with a woman with the comment: "beautiful couple." It's pretty funny.

by Anonymousreply 5102/09/2014

I don't know why he bothers to pretend otherwise.

by Anonymousreply 5202/09/2014

I don't know either R52 and it's kind of annoying. He goes out of his way to make himself appear straight sometimes. I get the impression that it's either an ego thing or he is getting some kind of amusement out of it (ie, trolling us).

by Anonymousreply 5302/09/2014

R53 how? He is flaming anytime I see him and even in R19 's video. That is not hiding he is turning up the gay in that video.

Well it is a little douchey but I think it's supposed to be a joke. You can see that his boyfriend commented on that picture.

He also posts borderline sappy romantic stuff sometimes. Like this.

I saw him leaning against the wall outside my local deli, smoking a cigarette last week. I almost screamed! He is so cute.

by Anonymousreply 6506/29/2014

I don't know why he's not out publicly but it's obviously something to do with being Middle Eastern. It's really hard for them to come out, there are so many semi-closeted ones even ones that live in America.

It's not like he really tries that hard to hide it anyway.

by Anonymousreply 6606/30/2014

Okay so maybe this is why he's not out.

"If u want to support them it's up to u! But plz don't link it with the shahada! Islam disapproves of this strongly."

"I totally agree with @altuwaijrisarah this is so offensive to Islam !!"

Well his Twitter feed this week since those 3 teenagers were brutally murdered has actually been anti-Israel, which is so incomprehensible to me. I was shocked at how VERY pro-Palestinian he comes across on Twitter.

r72, it should shock you that Israel has murdered 1523 Palestinian children since 2000, that's one child every 3 days. Even when those murders are caught on camera (as in the video below) the West ignores these horrific crimes because our governments and media are shocking pro-Israel.

by Anonymousreply 7607/04/2014

R72, he IS Palestinian. Why are you allowed to mourn for any Israeli killed, but a Palestinian is not allowed to do the same? Did he say it was fine that those Israelis were killed? No. But I'm sure as shit that you'd be defending any murder of Palestinians -- that's the difference. Pro-Israeli types can dehumanize Palestinians and justify their murders

Funny how Israel knew who kidnapped those 3, so they arrested 200 and blew up a few homes. Whereas with the Palestinians kid who was tortured then had his body burned, they actually HAVE a license plate, CCTV footage and a car description, yet no Israeli homes have been blown up, hundreds of Israelis haven't been arrested, nothing has been done. Quelle surprise.

Yeah, keep telling us that Apartheid doesn't exist in that hellhole of a country.

by Anonymousreply 7707/04/2014

Meanwhile, we have kids killed here all of the time and I don't see my politicians getting involved and memorializing them, but they'll do it for three Israeli settlers. Give me a fucking break. Stop telling me AIPAC doesn't have a massive hold over this country.

by Anonymousreply 8007/05/2014

R70 yeah, and he lives in Beirut. Is friends with the Lebanese band Mashrou' Leila's openly gay (pretty dangerous) lead singer Hamed Sinno. It's interesting it seems like there is kind of a prominent gay community in Beirut. Vast majority are not forthcoming about their sexuality online but don't actually hide it there either. I imagine they are out in their offline lives. Maybe not to family.

by Anonymousreply 8107/06/2014

Like I'm pretty sure the rest of Mashrou' Leila is gay as well but they haven't addressed it publicly like Hamed has. And he writes the songs, many of which are about gay relationships.

by Anonymousreply 8207/06/2014

r81, I've already mentioned on this thread that Ahmed's friend Hamed Sinno is not only openly gay but fully accepted by his deeply religious Muslim family. In Islam, all sexuality is private, whether hetero or homo.

by Anonymousreply 8307/06/2014

He's done it.

Congratulations Ahmed. Very brave step. It can't be easy in a conservative, Muslim culture. Really proud of and happy for you.

R84 that's not really doing anything. Although in the comments of this one he acknowledges the boyfriend.

Really hoping he never finds this thread though lol.

R84 I disagree. It could also be a pic with very good friend.

"Hamoudi you are a CATCH!"


Also I really didn't want to have to do this because it is actually creepy. It is public but it's still creepy. If there is suddenly more privacy settings we'll know that he's seen this thread and I can be appropriately ashamed.

He is Muslim so he's stupid. He's Palestinian so he doesn't bathe regular. He works with HuffPo so, again he's stupid.

You can tell by his photo he reeks of B.O. Now I know all you 'mos are into eating shit and drinking piss and think it's sex, but it isn't.

Ahmed was on the Don Lemon hour tonight. The topic was Violence in the Name of Religion and he debated with Rabbi Shmuley.

I didn't know this guy before seeing him tonight, but he struck me as possibly gay, so I did a search on DL to see if he's been discussed.

Sure enough, I found this thread.

His is a glass closet. You can't hate him for that because he's muslim and Arab and to them this could be a matter of death. Literally. He spends a lot of time in Beirut and I guess he's learned to ignore the injustice but sometimes it does get to him and his anger boils over, like when he tweeted this:

It's fascinating reading the racist/bigots comments in this thread if only because I know those same people are in every thread about Israel screaming about "antisemitism." Kind of like watching a Klan member shrieking about anti-white bigotry.

Middle eastern guys are so fkin nice and humble. I know its a generalization but its true. The islamic extremist and the terrorist shit always going in the middle east really skews things.
