Don't you know that the Pet Shop Boys aren't really gay? Neil "came out" in the 1990s only as a marketing ploy. And I've personally spoken to some of the many women Chris has bedded through the years.

Yeah, right, whatever. If believing that and sharing your belief with others helps you sleep at night, go for it. Just don't expect me to corroborate your fantasy.

If Neil himself can't convince you of his sincerity—such as by telling Attitude magazine "I am gay" (verbatim) back in 1994, not to mention countless other words and deeds since then—then there's nothing I can possibly say to change your mind. And the fact that Neil has averred at least one heterosexual relationship in his youth makes no difference whatsoever. Most gay men of his and other generations have "tried" heterosexual relationships, especially in their younger days. Many even went as far as to get married and father children. It doesn't change the fact that they're predominantly homosexual in their inclinations.

As for Chris, I know full well that he has never said (at least publicly) that he's gay. For all I know, he may not be. It's really none of my business. But let me just say that, if he is indeed heterosexual, he's certainly done a magnificent job of hiding it all this time.*


*A prediction based on having seen it happen numerous times for almost-certainly-gay celebrities who died before ever "coming out" – If Chris passes away (and let's hope that's not for a very long time!) before he ever publically states, "I'm gay," there will be people who will assert that he was asexual, apparently viewing that as preferable to being homosexual. Yes, I know full well that there are indeed some truly asexual people. I just seriously doubt that Chris is one of them.
