    Really? Maybe you're not old enough to remember. Course, you can't believe everything you read in those teen magazines, can ya? I can remember when it was quite the buzz....broke my heart at the time.

      Ah, a trip down memory lane. For what it's worth, this from wiki. Now I recall those interviews with Liz Taylor and the rest.


      It also says he died of AIDs related causes.

      Personal life While Hudson's career was developing, he and his agent Henry Willson kept his personal life out of the headlines. In 1955, Confidential magazine threatened to publish an exposé about Hudson's secret homosexual life. Willson forestalled this by disclosing information about two of his other clients.[9] According to some colleagues, Hudson's homosexuality was well known in Hollywood throughout his career;[10] former costars Elizabeth Taylor and Susan Saint James claimed they knew of his homosexual activity, as did Carol Burnett.

      Soon after the Confidential incident, Hudson married Willson's secretary Phyllis Gates. Gates later wrote that she dated Hudson for several months, lived with him for two months before his surprise marriage proposal, and married Hudson out of love and not, as it was later purported, to prevent an exposé of Hudson's sexual orientation.[11][page needed] Press coverage of the wedding quoted Hudson as saying, "When I count my blessings, my marriage tops the list." Gates filed for divorce after three years in April 1958, charging mental cruelty. Hudson did not contest the divorce, and Gates received alimony of US$250 a week for 10 years.[12] After her death from lung cancer in January 2006, some informants reportedly stated that she was actually a lesbian who married Hudson for his money, knowing from the beginning of their relationship that he was gay.[13] She never remarried.[14]

            So, just like I said, he never came out to the public.

            And the "S" is also to be capitalized, as it's an acronym: Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome.

              I don't see anything honorable about announcing a character flaw like homosexuality and making it some kind of status.

                Granite is right about this. It was inevitable and and the wicked are rejoicing.

                  It's not the "coming out" that's the problem. It's the being queer in the first place. And the climate that has led to publicly coming out instead of rejecting perversion and mental unsoundness in favor of embracing that which God has and wants for us.

                    They embrace the sin, announce it to the world then brag about it. There is something very wrong with this. It's called Rebellion Against God.

                      This is dumb but I laughed...

                      A long time ago I saw written on a bathroom stall wall, "Rock Hudson sat here"

                      For the OP, I really don't want to hear about athletes' or whoever's sexual practices, especially homosexual.

                        I just want to watch the sport, not hear about whatever perverted lifestyle the athlete claims as his own.

                          Eh, I was more disappointed to find out just how straight Tiger Woods was. Of course I guess what he did isn't nearly as bad as most answers here seem to suggest a nobody journeyman in the NBA saying he is gay, well is.
                          I'm not a sinner, or preacher, all I have is slight of hand.

                            Non-issue of the year. I don't know if anyone really cares what the sexual orientation of a professional athlete is.

                            This wouldn't be newsworthy if the media didn't push it so much.

                              Why would you be uncomfortable around homos?

                                Having them play silly games in the bathrooms and run around naked in the changing rooms is just plain wrong.
