Teppei and Narimiya are gay?



i'm suddenly starting to think they'd make a cool couple.

Fujiwara ... wow.


how accurate is this ... ? cause part 2 has Akanishi Jin and he's married and has a kid. though Jin could be  bisexual.


curiosity aroused: what about Kame-chan?

Oh, really interesting.

How does the japanese public react to homosexual celebs?


It can go either way honestly. They can be blacklisted and lose their fame or maintain it if they are talented/ have a decent enough fan base. Although I do know that gay actors may get typecast into really stereotypical roles




Had to add more to the list for my girl :meow:  hahah :lol:


And for those of you wondering those who are married to women fall under the bisexual catagory. The article just said gay so I wrote gay.
