Are there any famous GLBT poker players?

OK, as typical of an insecure straight male, I have to preface this post by saying that I myself am not gay.

However, I was wondering if there were any famous gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transsexual poker players out there. I don't know of any, but maybe some of you guys do.

I know of three "TV pros" that fall into your categories. Why do you feel it necessary to post a topic on this in an attempt to 'out' poker players? You do realize that you will get nothing more than the typical frat house responses.

I assumed he was talking about openly gay players. I have no interest in speculating about something a person wishes to keep private, but it is interesting to me that I can't name any openly gay poker players considering how many there are in other fields where one can acquire fame (including athletics if you include women).

Can you name any openly gay men who are currently playing professional football/basketball/baseball/hockey/soccer/tennis etc?

pretty sure Allen Cunningham is gay. Also, Jenniffer Tilly has openly admitted to having had sex with girls in the past.

But the worst part was when she took Phil away from Antonio. I'm just glad those two were able to remain friends.

Re: Are there any famous GLBT poker players?

i thought Allen Cunningham is a little gay, myself. He has the lisp, the gestures.....he is what is known as a twink in gay-dom. Regardless, he is one of my favorite players.....you dont really think about gay vs. straight after living in LA for so long, I just assume everyone is a little different. But if I had to put my money on an in-the-closet-poker-player-on-television, he is my pick. Even if he lives with a woman, he may be the type that runs out at 3am for orange juice.

All gay guys have a girlfriend to go shopping for shoes with.

And a dog named Muffin? That's a dead giveaway.
