I didn't know about Raymond and Stubbs either. I was wondering how everyone knows they are partners off court?

Welcome to the real world, where they reckon that approximately 1 in 10 of us are gay. Incredibly, that includes the odd famous person, sportsman/woman and politician.

Hey, i'm not offended. Its just that not all lesbians look like prison warders, and not all gay men look like characters from Village People.

because nobody knows, as far as I know the only activeplayers who came out are amelie and conchita and some even have doubts about the last, but I am sure I saw a quote from her where she said something about it!

Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams

In fact there was only 1 gayman in the Village People! They told that on tv last year!

Rebecca; Well, admittedly all of my friends do*, but I have seen some really dull gay men too, who could have passed for estate agents.

Tinkerbell; there are conspiracy theories here about just about everyone. If you do searches you'll see that most people have been suspected at some stage. And every attractive ATP player (plus Andy roddick) is frequently accused of it too.



*that bit wasnt actually true.
