Ever Wonder If Brian Boitano Might Be Gay? Don’t

briancompAfter Elton’s Michael Jensen tried to interview Brian Boitano about his new Food Network show, “What Would Brian Boitano Make?” It’s described as this:

With a lifelong passion for food and cooking, Brian hosts unpredictable get-togethers at his San Francisco home and creates amazing menus focusing on innovative but accessible dishes. He feeds an all-girl roller derby squad, plays matchmaker for a friend, wins over his handyman’s supper club, and plans a surprise party celebrating new motherhood.

Sounds sweet, doesn’t it? Thing is that when Jensen explained that he was from the gay site After Elton and, since Boitano’s show was so personal, wanted to ask Boitano a few personal questions, Jensen was physically guided away from Boitano and toward another journalist. The publicist explained that the show was strictly about cooking and would not focus on Boitano’s personal life.

Except when it’s in his home. Or about his friend. Or about his handyman. Sounds to me like Brian Boitano suffers from Michael Urie Disease . . . .

The other thing is this — Brian Boitano is gay. I know. He hit on me at the JFK airport. And that’s the entire reason I’m writing about this — I am so tiiiiiired of gay celebrities telling the world every little detail about themselves except their homosexuality, as though their sexuality is somehow more personal than, say, who their best friends are.

    why is it gay men always have to wear their sexuality on their sleeves…? reminds me how blacks always make EVERYTHING about their being black…..wtf – all of you need to get a life and if you don’t want anyone asking about who you prefer for a sex partner quit acting so flaming … one thing that really irks me is why do some of you gay men act like a freaky deaky and flame where ever you go….stop it already…try acting like a normal human once in awhile instead of trying to attract attention all the time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    @ not gay: wow, you’ve managed to be a complete homophobe and a racist all in one comment. Congratulations, you are a card-carrying bigot.

    @”not gay” *side eye*… Why do straight guys feel the need to constantly remind us they are straight? Or spew homophobic rhetoric to prove how “straight” they are to everyone? Or come onto a gay site an make a jack ass out of themselves? Or is this your way of attracting attention? Kinda sad an pathetic when you think about it.

    Well, I wonder why he is not coming clean? His show will certainly benefit from the press if he came out…Just do it, Brian! Let the world know…! They will love you no matter what..

    If BB isn’t gay, he’d better decide to try it because with the way he acts on his show, no straight woman in the world would be turned on by him. LOL. He’s so flamboyant he is exhausting to watch. It’s distracting from the food, which is a shame considering it’s supposed to be a cooking show. Some of the guys on Queer Eye (see Carson Kressley) are just as flamboyant, but somehow it was funny not distracting. The creative staff on this show needs to rethink this one. And BB needs to own who he is. It’s 2010, and as long as you’re not sitting in my lap, I won’t judge you based on what you do with your penis.

    BB is undoubtedly gay. Patty is RIGHT! I’m watching his show and his overt flamboyant behavior is pretty distracting from the food. I don’t care that he’s gay its just PLEASE FREAKING ADMIT IT!

    Not Gay: Completely uncalled for and completely crude. Do we go to your KKK site and call you a redneck?

    If society weren’t intolerant and oppressive like Not Gay, there would be no need for closets for so many of us. The fact is that it is important to be open with our own homosexuality so that our gay children and others who are still in the closet know that there is nothing wrong with being gay. It is only through openness and honesty and the willingness to fight for equal rights that perhaps one day we can rid of bigotry of any sort.

    Why are people so nuts about this? It went on for years about ‘Frasier’s’ DHP, who I am guessing just got sick of it all. I have worked in theatre for years, yes pro, and have always known who is who. Being female, it has sometimes been a disapointment, but let’s be and let be. My best friends over the years have been gay men. Bright, witty, sweet and fun. That will never change. The talent is what gets to me. I was on the ice the day that they did the tribute to Grincov, and Brian happenened to do his special jump right where I sat. It was perfect.
    Enough already. People are who they were born to be. It’s their talent and kindness that matters.
    All of you, please get over it. Just embrace the talent, whatever the art.

    It’s so silly! I realize that a person has the right to
    keep their personal life personal, but I applaud any person,
    especially those who are famous, for coming out and letting others,
    especially those young people struggling with their sexuality, that
    you can be gay and still have a wonderful life. I am 47 and when I
    was a teenager there were no gay people on tv, or anywhere I

    People shouldn’t feel obliged to say anything about their personal life. Even celebrities. What would even change if he did say he was gay/straight? Its a non-issue.

    Sexuality is more personal than who may best friends are. Best friends are public knowledge, the sex acts one performs are not. If you can’t respect another person’s privacy, Aka, than you have a long way to go in supporting someone’s civil rights.

    I agree with kristine, you are a douche and just upset that he didn’t hit on you. Sexual preference is personal. Brian seems to be an upstanding human being and is a former Olympic athlete. Sexual preference isn’t even on my list of character qualifiers.

    BB is so gay. Saw him at Circuit City with his “friend” No doubt in my mind and it’s very sad that someone in his position isn’t open about something that is who he is…
