Is Patrick Stewart gay?

My mom and brother seem to think he is, but I specifically remember reading somewhere that he's married to some lady whose name I forgot, so I don't think he is. But now my brother's starting to annoy me by calling him a fag every time he sees him on tv (which is semi-often, as I enjoy watching TNG) or anytime I talk about Star Trek he'll be like "And you know what? The guy who plays Picard is GAY!"

So I just need someone to set the record straight here with good enough evidence that will get my brother to STFU if he's wrong.

Re: Is Patrick Stewart gay?

Personal life

In 1964, Stewart met the choreographer of the Old Vic, Sheila Falconer, and they later wed on March 4, 1966 from which there were two children: Daniel Freedom, and Sophie Alexandra. Stewart and Falconer divorced in 1990. In 1997 he became engaged to Wendy Neuss, a production assistant on the series Star Trek: Voyager, and later married on August 25, 2000. They divorced on October 14, 2003. Four months prior to his divorce of Neuss, Stewart played opposite actress Lisa Dillon in a production of The Master Builder. Despite their age difference (she was 24), the two have dated.

The man's son was in an episode. Looks just like him.

Of course he is. Wouldn't you be incredibly happy if the career you've been struggling to build has been falling into place?

Re: Is Patrick Stewart gay?

Why does it need to be disproved? It's not like there'd be anything wrong with it if it were true. Patrick Stewart has played gay characters, he has a number of gay friends and coworkers (including Bryan Singer and Sir Ian McKellen), and he's an active supporter of gay rights. So it's not like he'd feel offended if someone thought he might be gay. (I mean, come on, he's in the theater.)

So don't try to prove to your brother that Stewart is hetero -- that's just buying into his false premise that there's anything wrong with being gay. What you should be doing is convincing him how wrong he is to think it matters. If you want to defend Patrick Stewart, defend the principle he believes in.

Jesus H. Christ, why does this bullshit appear?

No, I am not going to lock this, but this thread is horseshit. Perhaps I’m too lenient.

In any case, neither the captain of the Enterprise was gay nor the man that was hired to act the part was gay. It doesn’t matter either way. One would hope that 400 frigging years from now this kind of shit would not make a difference.

Unless he's hiding his homosexuality with 2 marriages(one of those lasting nearly 25 years) and he's dating a 24 year old. Yeah he's gay.
