They can't even say gay anymore, which i'm sure their managers insist on. At least he didn't say queer.

He kept it real general.

My brain got excited and read your post as Brett Eldredge (country singer) comes out, op.
I don't remember him on Fleabag. I binged both seasons in two days back to back, so maybe that's why.

I watched Fleabag, I did, I did. But I don't remember him.
Could be because I only watched (the much talked about) season 2. I believe he appeared in season 1.

I think it's a great strategy, he came out as not straight and kept it generically enough to still appeal to women.
So this is the third Fleabag member to be out? Aren't Andrew Scott and Hugh Skinner gay too?

Doesn’t the “+” in LGBT+ indicate allies? Maybe he’s straight but doesn’t hate gay people and wants to cultivate a gay audience.
He needs to post a video showing him enthusiastically sucking cock. That’s the only way to be sure that he is “part of the community.”

r57, pretty sure Lee Pace didn't come out as gay. IIRC he says he's still into women and identifies as queer or member of the LGBTMLBCBDF778+. Not sure what's wrong with just saying your're bi.
As for Ben Aldridge, like others have said, coming out as a member of the alphabet soup is meaningless now as it also includes allies; so he could be straight as a board and still identify as a member.
|by Anonymous||reply 77||Last Tuesday at 4:15 PM|
r77 He came out during an interview where the reporter basically forced him to admit he's been with men. He did say that he goes out with women, but it was obvious this was a reflex to minimize his homosexuality. Since then, he's been referred to as gay in the press, and I think he called himself that, too.
