I Cannot Deny It: I Am NOT Gay


By Shana Naomi Krochmal

The 'I Need a New Publicist' Denial

Larry Craig: 'I've been in this business 27 years in the public eye here. I don't go around anywhere hitting on men, and by God, if I did, I wouldn't do it in Boise, Idaho! Jiminy!'

Kenny Chesney: 'It's not true. Period. Maybe I should have come out and said no, I'm not, but I didn't want to draw any more attention to it.'

Wentworth Miller: 'If someone wants to imagine me with a woman or a man or one of each, that's cool with me as long as you keep watching the show.'

The 'Couldn't Have Written It Better Ourselves' Denial

Russell Simmons: 'Listen, I'm not gay. If I was, I would have the gift of another burden, and I would probably be instantly out. I fight for gay rights all the time. How about that?'

Ricky Martin [on Christian Ch'vez's coming-out]: 'Life is too short to live closed up, guarding what you say. [He] has to be free in many aspects. I wish him much strength.'
