Outing Gay Celebrities – Is It Sound Legal Territory

Blogger Attempts To Out Music Mogul Clive Davis And Singer Mariah Carey

August 20, 2007

Bloggers like Perez Hilton and now former publicist, Jonathan Jaxson, have taken to outing celebrities as gay in a big way. Jaxson’s claims are drawing attention now because he was proven correct in the past. While I don’t know those two bloggers and this isn’t about them personally, I would like to discuss the legal aspect of this trend popularized by Perez.

If a person is labeled gay and they are not, can they sue. Some judges have thrown out such lawsuits under the premise that being called gay is not a slur or something bad.

However, what if it is a person who makes their money in the entertainment industry off an image of being a wholesome, straight family person with children.

If the person is actually gay or bi-sexual then the image would be a lie and they did so at their own risk. But what if they are not gay and are labeled as such causing their career and reputation harm.

In closing, as a Christian, I like millions of others of the faith believe based on the Bible that being gay is not God’s will for a person’s life. However, He gave everyone in this world free will, therefore it is each person’s choice.

Here is Jonathan Jaxson’s list of who he is saying is gay – and I have highlighted a few in red that may surprise you (can you believe he thinks Elton John is gay – whatever gave him that idea – just kidding):
