Re: Was Picard gay?

Depends. Was Sisko gay? Yes, he got married and his wife was died in the pilot. Nonetheless, he seldom actively chased women. If anything, Jake introduced Kassidy to him. And Janeway hardly got any action on her ship. And even then, this was with a hologram lol... Archer didn't have a relationship as such, just a brief fling with the CO of his sister ship.

If anything, this at least represents real life, in that there are many who don't actively seek relationships, have careers that interest them, children to raise, etc.

Re: Was Picard gay?

He may not have been into women, but that doesn't make him "gay". He simply could have been asexual or not that much interested in intimate relationships. It was the latter, I think. What's wrong with that? Besides, when you're a captain of a Federation flagship you don't have much time for those things.

Re: Was Picard gay?

He's not a "ladies man" like Kirk, but I was disappointed the ST writers didn't bother to give him a sustained monogamous hetero relationship. Especially once the movies rolled around. If not Beverly, then some other wholesome, sophisticated lady of a certain age. His fling with that gal in Insurrection while Beverly's right there seemed especially out of character.

He seemed more like a one-woman guy than a ladies man or a gay guy (not that there's anything wrong with that).

Stewart can indulge in flamboyancy from time to time and occasionally he let it slip through his characterization of Picard. But no... he was straight as they come.

Actually, he was secretly Andorian but he had Beverly bob his antennae and tint his skin, because he was afraid of not being completely accepted.

I love it when people feel the need to throw that in. Reminds me of that Seinfeld episode.

I kind of like the idea of a Pride Parade thru the bridge

Only in modern culture could a character be tagged as gay just because he's not lusting his ass off over every woman he sees.
Ain't that the truth...

Perhaps. But there will always be people who have preferences. Not everybody will like everybody. Nothing wrong with THAT, either.

As for Picard: Did we ever see him go after a man? No? Then: not gay.

Re: Was Picard gay?

Picard was practically married to Starfleet He was so career focused that any woman he had any interest in, would always be secondary to him.

Re: Was Picard gay?

I can see him being more enlightened and open than Kirk about things. Maybe you are thinking about Patrick playing a character called Jeffrey in another program, or that line where he is possessed by the female vampire in Lifeforce.

Re: Was Picard gay?

Picard tapped Vash, Beverly (possibly), Batanides, and that 200+ year old chick in Insurrection. Picard never once showed any interest in the opposite sex, and if anyone of TNG's main character did (or would), it would have been Data 'exploring' humanity.

Picard was aloof and not one for sharing his deepest feelings with anyone, he may have been at times cold and distant but that doesn't mean he was gay.

A better question is: was Archer zoophiliac?
He seemed more into Porthos than into any human(oid) of either gender...

Re: Was Picard gay?

Let's not forget that he was married to a woman and had children with her, in The Inner Light. So, that was only an illusion, and didn't actually happen, but it still counts .

Depends on how you view 'All Good Things...' - I'd say 'definitely', myself.
