Gaydar: People en Español's 100 Most Influential Hispanics

OK! Let's start the year with fluff!

Picked up this month's People en Español yesterday, didn't get to it until today. Let's count the gays among their first ever "100 Most Influential Hispanics" using our ever faulty gaydar!

Gay #1: Page 61 and 62 - Cuban-American fashion designer Narciso Rodriguez? GAY!

Gay #2: Page 62 - Peruvian-born fashion photographer Mario Testino? GAY!

Gay #3: Page 71 - Argentinian dancer Julio Bocca? GAY! (or maybe BISEXUAL?)

Gay #4: Page 77 - Spaniard shoe designer Manolo Blahnik? GAY!

Gay #5: Page 91 - Boricua activist Anthony D. Romero, Executive Director of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU)? GAY! Even if he is still unable to name his partner by name.

Gay #6: Page 93 - Spaniard Pedro Almodovar? YES!

Gay #7: Page 93 - Cuban-born playwright Nilo Cruz? GAY!

Gay #8: Page 94 - Honduran/Cuban-American artist Andrés Serrano? GAY!

Gay #9: Page 109 - Venezuelan AIDS activist Jesus Agüais (pictured above in a 2004 photo by yours truly)? GAY!

Gay #10: Page 118 - Mexican diva Juan Gabriel? YES!

Gaydar alerts #11-14?
That's between 10% and 14% gay for our top 100 national Hispanic leaders(well, at least those deemed to be in the Top 100 by People magazine), if not more!

I always get a kick of watching Walter Mercado trying to pass himself as being straight by having that woman, who's name unfortunately escapes me at the moment, appear with him every Monday.

And about Menudo...well, never mind, it's the past.

Quite an impressive list. WOOF. Thanks for sharing. Always need to know who's pretending to be straight and who is queer
