Gay men and fashion

Why does it seem that there are a lot of gay men who are either fashion designers or who know the designers and what is in season? Is it because society dictates what the interests of a gay man, or is it just an interest that appears in quite a few gay men?  A good example would be Enrique, the pool boy from the movie Legally Blonde. Another good example would be Michael Kors.

    I’m pretty sure it’s because when you identify yourself as gay, your inherently more in tune with your feminine side, therefore you don a females intuition. Mind you, being a fashion designer doesn’t necessitate homosexuality for any gender, but it is common.

    “When a straight man puts on a dress and goes on a sexual kick he is a transvestite. When a man is a woman trapped in a man’s body and has a little operation he is a Transsexual. When a gay man has way too much fashion sense for one gender he is a drag queen. And when a tired little Latin boy puts on a dress, he is simply a boy in a dress! “

    I think straight men are just as interested in what they are wearing sometimes, but may not feel as comfortable as gay men do in that atmosphere because society does not let them. It is the same with women; some women care more about what they wear than others. As far as the fashion industry, it would be hard for a straight man to be in that type of atmosphere all day long everyday and feel manly. I think that is what it is.

  6. I don’t think Enrique is gay just because his dressing style is a little bit different…he’s a celebrity and celebrity usually dress different!
