Martin, Paquan Declare

Who’s surprised with the declarations of sexuality by Ricky Martin and Anna Paquan? We saw the news and a few blogs but does anyone really care?

Did people know already? Certainly, one article seems to claim that both members of the gay and lesbian community and also straights in great numbers had a good sense of the sexual interests of many stars.

I think many people could read between the lines in the 1920s and 1930s if stereotypical behaviors and coded words were used as I argue in my book Hollywood Bohemians: Transgressive Sexuality and the Selling of the Movieland Dream.

Two one-time big stars express their gay and bisexual interests and inclinations and activities. Gossip column mentions but little stirring among the chattering classes. While the standards appear different between gay men and women with gay interests, it appears that Paquan will still be in True Blood and has a few movies opening.

Martin will certainly release new songs to presumably his faithful following.
