r19 I think anti-gay means actively seeks to suppress or spews hatred about gay people. Or vote against gay people. Or discrimate against them. To a extent, some gay people are closeted. Maybe at work, in school etc. That doesn't mean they are anti-gay. Celebrities who are closeted but don't actively beard are not anti-gay are they?

It's weird all you guys in America think the UK is right on and cool about gays, but that couldn't be further from the truth. I think a few years ago, maybe in the 90s that was more true, but now, young people seem to love to take the piss and deride gay men.

I don't believe half of these, especially when someone posts a name with no explanation. A lot sound like someone holding a grudge from some imagined slight or poor choice of words decades ago, or jealousy/anger over misplaced affections, mistaken sexuality (after years of wishful hoping), or a fan letter that went unanswered. And then there's the "crime" of being a closet case in a time when being gay was literally a crime. Even today, I wouldn't defend the closet, but I don't believe everyone who choses that path is a homophobe outwardly.

Yes, R177, and I also remember one of his early appearances on Letterman where the host tried to make some pathetic reference to "there being no queers around here" (I'm paraphrasing) meaning that he and Ricky were good red-blooded heteros, and Gervais immediately called him on it and pretty much gave Letterman a dressing-down for being so small-minded as to think such things mattered in this day and age.
Most stars would have just shut up and "played nice" to appease the powerful homophobe in his lair for fear of jeopardizing their careers (or future appearances).
Gervais reacted instinctively and admirably. Definitely gay-friendly.

Not to be petty here, but Rob Lowe doesn't actually state in his book that he has no issue with homosexuality. Because he doesn't have to. It is clear from what he writes that he is very liberal and has/had many gay friends including a guy from his Malibu days that was a best friend of his who died from AIDS very young.
Also, not sure if anyone remembers, but he was hugely into Democratic politics in the 80s/90s. It was while campaigning for Dukakis that he met that underage girl and made the sex tape.

I had a good friend, someone I went to high school with, who was a stage carpenter on Supernatural for three years. He was gay but youâd never know it, and he said that that set was the most homophobic heâd ever worked on. He claimed that Jensen and Jared were a lot of fun to look at, but that they were just dumbasses about a lot of things. He said theyâd spontaneously start dancing around, talking in falsetto voices, claiming affection for different people on the set, using exaggerated hand gestures, rolling and batting their eyes, never understanding that what they were doing was nothing but making fun of gays. He also said theyâd use a lot, and he said a lot, of inappropriate language, such as calling everyone a âfag.â He also claimed that Jensen would talk about gay men and say things like, âThatâs just wrong, thatâs not the way itâs supposed to be,â and that it was widely known that he was adamantly opposed to gay marriage or even gay rights. Iâm always looking for something that says the opposite, even though I trust my friend. It just hurts because Iâve always been such a fan of the show and the two actors.

I was a huge fan of the show for years until my damn high school reunion when my buddy, who is now working at Whistler, told me about them. And the thing is, my friend said that when there were press on the set, it was a totally different thing. Nary a word about that, "Gay men are gross" stuff was heard. And my buddy said the two idiots, Jensen and Jared (just in case there's any confusion about who the two idiots are in this story) would constantly kid each other about an obviously gay grip on the show. "He's looking at your ass, Jared" . . . "No, it's YOUR ass he's looking at Jensen because you want him," that kind of stupid bullshit. I mean, I know they were just straight guys from Texas in their twenties, but still. Like my friend said, they make a lot of money from fans, and a lot of those fans are gay. Dammit, here I am TWO YEARS after hearing that story still looking for evidence it's not true, when I know it is. My friend wasn't the kind of guy to lie or make stuff up. Plus, he was upset by it.

You're crazy if you think Jensen Ackles likes slash. I'm a HUGE fan of the show and I have to embarrasingly admit to going to not one but two SPN conventions and slash is NOT treated well there. It's joked about and not in a kind or funny way. That clip where Jense says he likes it is out of context, I bet. You sure don't see a lot of gay fans at those conventions either. Maybe some, but I bet they don't come back. It's mostly older women like in their mid 30s or 40s, or really young fangirls. Questions are always stuff like "Are you Christian? What church do you go to in California, in Vancouver?" And anyone can tell you that its a whole lot easier for someone with a religious upbringing to reconcile dating a hot playboy model than it is to condone gays. I'm not taking one side or the other on the is he homophobic issue cuz the man's never come up to me and told me he didn't like gays. I'm just get the idea from what I've read that he says one thing to preserve his career but actually believes and supports (quietly) another. Maybe I'm wrong. Cool! My first post here!

Umm, you do know that all that stuff that he mentioned is available for viewing, right? It makes up a large portion of the gag reels for each season. It is funny, warm, tongue-in-cheek stuff and in no way is it supposed to be derogatory or hateful.
"Questions are always stuff like "Are you Christian? What church do you go to in California, in Vancouver?"
Again, all of their convention shows are online, I've seen many, many tapings of the sessions that they conduct. Unless the people recording the presentations stop filming at the exact time that those kind of questions are asked, I have NEVER heard those things asked of them. Unless it was very early on when they first started doing the shows.
"Wincest" is a very different bird than slash with the two actors. They do know it exists, hell they mentioned it on a show once.
It all goes right back to whether or not the actors are using us fans to perpetuate the rumor that they are together. A lot, myself included, believe that they are together so the idea that they could be homophobes is mind-boggling.

Some stars, like say Ryan Reynolds, isn't gay-hating as such, but they are flaky narcissists, so they don't give a fuck about any one other than themselves, they don't care if the participate in or encourage homophobia as long as they are flaunting their own ego.

All you dumbasses saying that no one has ever asked Jensen Ackles religious questions a convention are DELUSIONAL! Jensen is TOTALLY against abortion and gay marriage. I was THERE when he gave it away. To be fair he didn't say it outright, but he looked over at the emcee like person when someone asked about prop 8, if he was upset, and when the emcee they didn't deflect it he made up some bullshit about everybody having the right to an opinion, but it was clear. I think he claims to be okay with gays but would NEVER support gay marriage. The other one, Padalecki, he rocks. Read his Twitter. He supported gay marraigae and obama.

I am fifty-two. At the worst part of the plague (late eighties,early nineties) Donna Summer told at least one journalist (the context was how gay men had made-up such a large part of her fan base.)that she didn't think that was as true as had been reported. She also said she and her church in Boston "did not believe homosexuality to be an "acceptable lifestyle"..."that god did not approve of homosexuality",that her family did not condone homosexuality"',and she had always believed she would have had the same career without us. I'm from Boston,came out to her music ,wore-out all her records and was hurt and furious when she reveled this. She never sold even a fraction of the records she had previous to making these statements.Prince made similar statements about "not approving of the homosexual lifestyle a couple of years ago.What really pisses me off though,is that neither of these cunts had the honesty of they're convictions while we were buying they're music to state these views.Fuck them both!

Donna Summer never said anything anti-gay to a journalist. There has never been any interview produced where she ever said anti-gay remarks. She repeatedly denied it over the years.
The story goes that the anti-gay rumors were started by David Geffen in the early 80s. Donna was signed to his label at the time and they didn't get along at all so he said those things about her out of spite.

Every gay person should be cautious of heterosexuals who claim to be gay icons or gay advocates especially when they've done next to nothing for gay people. Wendy Williams' opinion of gay people is more negative than positive. When gay celebrities come up in hot topics it's always negative like arrest not positive like getting married.
I wish more gay people would be more critical in their thinking of deciphering who is gay. Seth MacFarlane is heterosexual. He has a very typical heterosexual male mindset. In his mind, he is generous to LGBT people. Any person who perpetuates the myth that gay people, real or fictional, are out to ruin hetero-pleasantville is anti-gay.
The South Park creators, Stone and Parker, are anti-gay. Every gay character they produce is debased.

Should We Forgive Bill Clinton? NO WE SHOULDN'T
BY DOUG IRELAND | So now, Bill Clinton told us this month in an opinion piece for the Washington Post, he’s against the Defense of Marriage Act he signed into law in 1996. We’re supposed to be grateful. But “the powerful odor of mendacity” (to borrow Tennessee Williams’ pungent phrase) has always hung over the ex-president, and this offensive smell permeates his anti-DOMA declaration.
When Clinton gave into the bigots and signed DOMA into law, he now writes, it was to forestall a constitutional amendment limiting marriage to a man and a woman. That’s just hogwash. In 1996, there was very little support for such a constitutional amendment in the Congress — that did not emerge until the issue of gay marriage was adopted by Karl Rove as the strategy to guarantee that George W. Bush would win the 2004 election.
DOMA is now “incompatible with the Constitution,” Clinton wrote. But DOMA was always un-constitutional — and Bill Clinton knew this when he signed it and made it the law of the land.
Did Bill apologize to gay Americans for having targeted them with DOMA’s bigotry? No. What has changed? Public opinion has. In just five short years, there has been a tectonic shift in the country’s attitude toward marriage equality for queers. According to the Washington Post/ ABC poll, 58 percent of Americans now support same-sex marriage — a 20-point shift in just a few short years —including majorities of Catholics and blacks and Latinos. Now that nine states and the District of Columbia have legalized marriage equality, the sky hasn’t fallen and the dire predictions of its conservative opponents — that the family would be “destroyed” by allowing two men or two women to marry — have been shown to be the fantasies they always were.
With a 100-odd prominent Republicans having signed an amicus brief in the marriage equality case now in front of the Supreme Court, it has become clear that Bill Clinton was on the wrong side of history. No Democrat who opposes marriage equality can now win the presidential nomination.
And, surprise, surprise, a week after the ex-president’s op-ed, Hillary Clinton kicked off her campaign for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination by releasing a video stating her support for marriage equality. And there you have the explanation for Bill Clinton’s reversal of position. It was all a part of clearing the decks for Hillary’s renewed candidacy for the White House.
Did Bill apologize to gay Americans for having targeted them with DOMA’s bigotry? No.
Moreover, Bill’s op ed was utterly silent about how his 1996 presidential campaign ran ads on Christian radio in the heartland and the Bible Belt boasting of how he’d signed DOMA. Bill’s re-election was never really in doubt, and he won in a landslide against the sinister Bob Dole. So the craven cynicism he displayed in signing DOMA into law was obvious at the time.
Bill signed DOMA as a pre-emptive strike against any attacks on his always-messy personal life — remember the “bimbo patrol” his ’92 campaign set up to silence or undermine revelations about his serial marriage infidelities? Remember Ms. Lewinsky and her kneepads and Bill’s cigar? (If you’ve forgotten that history, read my late friend Christopher Hitchens’ terrific 1999 book “No One Left to Lie To: The Values of the Worst Family.”)
The truth is that an old and predatory libertine like Bill couldn’t have cared less if a guy or a gal wanted to marry a Volkswagen. He wasn’t a bigot himself — he just surfed on the bigotry of others like the opportunist he’s always been. And it is that opportunism that led him to write his op-ed piece against DOMA on behalf of his wife’s candidacy.
But there is a long list of vicious actions by President Clinton and his administration for which he owes LGBT people an unadulterated apology.

But there is a long list of vicious actions by President Clinton and his administration for which he owes LGBT people an unadulterated apology.
Let’s take his betrayal of his 1992 campaign pledge to end, “with the stroke of a pen,” the ban on gays serving in the military, which helped him raise millions of gay dollars for his campaign — especially from the Hollywood crowd he liked to hang out with.
Most presidents, when they take office, have a plan on how to fulfill their campaign promises. But Bill had no plan for allowing gays to serve in uniform. And so he got rolled by the military. With Colin Powell in the lead, the generals staged what was, in effect, a silent coup d’état that throttled our tradition of civilian control over the military with a revolt of the brass hats. And Bill then did what every cynical politician does when he wants to avoid a confrontation over principle — he appointed a commission. The one that gave us Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell — which was, of course, like DOMA, the writing of bigotry into law. As I reported in a cover story for The Nation, Don’t Ask Don’t Tell unleashed a wave of persecution and violence against gays in the armed services that included murders. The blood of those victims of violence is on Bill’s hands.
Sure, Bill gave jobs to a few gay boys and girls — just enough to keep his gay campaign donors happy, but never in any positions that would have affected the daily lives of gay people.
In 1996, when ENDA — the pathetically inadequate Employment Non-Discrimination Act for gay people — came within one vote of passing the Senate, Bill and his White House didn’t lift a pinkie to help secure pro-ENDA votes. That swing vote was Senator Dale Bumpers, a Democrat from Clinton’s own home state of Arkansas, who took a walk.
And then, there was AIDS. Bill fired Surgeon General Joycelyn Elders for having championed teaching the use of condoms in the schools and advocated masturbation as a safe alternative to risky sex at a time when teenage infection rates were soaring.
In the second Clinton administration, one of my gigs was writing a column on the politics of AIDS for POZ magazine. And back then I wrote a series of columns exposing how Bill and his administration used aid and trade blackmail targeting Third World countries to stop them from buying or manufacturing cheaper, generic versions of the AIDS-fighting drugs needed to prolong life. Al Gore was the point man in this odious extortion campaign, which is why he was dogged by ACT UP in his 2000 presidential campaign. How many thousands died because Clinton, in his subservience to the greed of Big Pharma, engaged in this shameful arm-breaking? We’ll never know for sure — but their blood, too, is on Bill’s hands.
Whenever I see Bill parading around these days as a champion of the fight against AIDS, I think of those who died from the epidemic because of him. He has always reminded me of a line of Goethe’s, in “The Sorrows of Young Werther”: “Each step he takes costs the lives of a thousand poor little worms.” And my late partner, Hervé Couergou, was one of the worms crushed under the heel of Bill Clinton’s cynical opportunism.
I fell in love with Hervé shortly after I moved to France for a decade. But not long after I moved back to the US to lay the groundwork for Hervé to join me here, Bill signed a renewal of President George H.W. Bush’s executive order banning admission into this country of anyone who was HIV-positive. This obscene act of Bill Clinton’s broke up many families, including mine. And because Hervé had sero-converted, he felt the full force of Clinton’s ukase — which, I’m convinced, didn’t win the president a single vote.

After Hervé became too ill to work, I had to stay here to earn a living for both of us — and so, thanks to Bill Clinton, I was denied the right to nurse Hervé during the illness that took his life. This broke my heart. There are a number of very reliable studies that showed us that those with AIDS who had partners to take care of and comfort them lived significantly longer than those who didn’t. Thus, Bill’s executive order — which he signed before the Congress formalized the ban in law — not only deprived me of the right to take care of my sick beloved, it shortened his life. And Hervé died, alone, in a Paris hospital before I could get there to hold his hand as that dread disease took his life. As far as I’m concerned, Hervé’s blood, too, is on Bill’s hands.
If I were to run into Bill Clinton again today, I would spit in his face, not only for Hervé but for all those queers and people with AIDS, in uniform and out, whose lives were destroyed by his opportunism. He showed us no mercy, and we owe him none. He’s never apologized for his multiple assaults against us. So his forgiveness will have to come from someone other than me. And his belated anti-DOMA declaration, designed solely to burnish his image and avoid campaign problems for his wife, is just another cynical and self-serving act.

It is true that Ann Miller once stated that there were no "pansies" in her show. But she thought she was defending her gay dancers from anti-gay sentiment that was pervasive in the nation at the time. At heart, she was not a homophobe and had many gay friends all her life.

Has anyone noticed how Brad Pitt always speaks up for gay rights, but Angelina always stays silent? I've always found that interesting, especially since she once claimed to be bi (which I never really believed - she had a fling with that Asian model but was never with any other women).

In 1954, Charles Laughton's worst fear materialized while directing Henry Fonda in the play The Caine Mutiny Court Martial. Fonda, angry at the play's development and execution, lashed out at Laughton by sneering. "What do you know about men, you fat ugly faggot ?"

R396: If you're going to keep a running list, please insert punctuation & spaces, and maybe present it in list form, so it's easier to read?
Also, a number of those on the list are dead, so I'm not sure what value that has for us in the present.
