Paul Stanley Of KISS Addresses Gay Rumors

(Classic Rock) KISS frontman Paul Stanley has described long-standing rumours that he's gay as the "oddest" thing that's ever said about him. And he asserts that, if he was, he'd be proud of the fact.

Whispers have circulated for years that the iconic musician and father of four has kept his true sexuality a secret. But Stanley tells The Breeze: "As long as you're a good person, sexual orientation and stuff like that is totally irrelevant. That being said, I never saw a guy where I said, 'Gee, that's a close second to a woman.'

"I never looked and said, 'If I can't have that girl over there, I'm taking the bloke.' It's always persisted over time that I'm gay. If I were, I'd be proud to be whatever I am."

He adds: "That's always been really interesting, that some people can't take my comfort with sexuality, misreading it as something it's not. I scratch my head at that." Read more here.
