Did John Lennon have gay leanings? Were they more than leanings? Was the angle more of an incline?

John Lennon grew up on MenLove Avenue in a house called MenDips.

The JIGers will certainly be able to find a few clues every bit as convincing as the PIDers ever did :)

Junior was a terrible film.

Pretty sure Annadog's being witty! They're both about pregnancy, but aside from that and a similar title, the films have nothing in common. "Juno"'s actually pretty funny and worth seeing. (I didn't see "Junior" but have no doubt it's indeed terrible.)

Going by the storyline at imdb its not something i will be watching before i die. Any film which has the lead character described as "quirky" should be avoided in my book. However it cant be any worse than a comedy in which Arnold Schwarzenegger gets pregnant.

And I think the director of jono's dad made junior.

What if they made a sequel where he became pregnant again? "And this time...*record scratch*-it's TWINS!"

Ooh, and Arnie plays a cyborg who's gotta travel back in time to kill his mother and prevent his own birth! And DeVito's doing the same only he's trying to prevent his brother from doing it...I like it.

Danny could then be the Terminator in Terminator 2 who shape shifts. Film a few new scenes for 2016, slip them in as deleted scenes and you have a 25th anniversary release. Could tie up all the films done by both actors in this. Would certainly make Jack The Bear more interesting - the only film where i have ever thrown popcorn at other patrons in the cinema due to extreme boredom.

I guess this belongs in this thread as well as anywhere...I read a 1986 interview with Gerry Marsden and he says the stories that John had a special, intense relationship with Stu Sutcliffe are not true. He also said that John was not an aggressive or sarcastic person and was always the last person in a fight.

Also read an 80's interview with Pete Best, who corroborated the story that Stu was jumped outside a gig and he and John stepped in to help out. I think maybe the story that John kicked Stu in the head was made up.

I found this the other day… I know I've seen it before:

  • Interview of 1975 for Hit parader
    Q: "Yeah, your friends…"
    John: "Yes, all your best friends let you know what’s going on. I was trying to put it ‘round that I was gay, you know— I thought that would throw them off… dancing at all the gay clubs in Los Angeles, flirting with the boys… but it never got Off The Ground."
    Q: "I think I’ve only heard that lately about Paul."
    John: “Oh, I’ve had him, he’s no good.”
    (laughter) 

I know how cheeky John was, but I though I would toss that here.  a-hard-days-night-john-1

I think as curious as he was to understand himself and open as as he was to evaluate the various societal values, it is very likely that he was fascinated with the idea of "gayness". Which doesn't necessarily mean that he had gay leanings in particular. And we can't read much into what he had to say on the subject because we know how evasive and witty he was with his answers...often to the point of making the interviewer think exactly the opposite of what he intended. Because he was John! a-hard-days-night-john-1

I've thought about this a lot, and I really don't think he was gay. But on the other hand, how do you define someone as gay? Even if he did experiment with other guys, does that really make him "gay"? I don't think anyone is 100% straight, gay, whatever. I don't think a persons sexual orientation is as black and white as we like to think it is.

Hello everybody. Nobody has posted anything here since October, but I’d like to. I’ll confess that I haven’t read the whole fifteen pages of the thread, only the last few ones, but I would like to ask if anybody knows who started the rumor originally. A reporter, a biographer, who? And what evidence did he have? All I’ve read I speculation. Thanks, Oudis.
