Gay people exist, even in the old days when they do not let themselves exposed as being such. It is only in these days of the modern world where gays are accepted, and most of them are coming out, exposing themselves as gay people. In the old days, they just keep this to themselves, or they are “living in a closet”, with fears of being taunted as gays or homosexuals. This is particularly happening when gay people are with high positions in government, in the academe, or occupying high positions in the business world. Most of the gay people in the olden times fear that they will lose the respect of people when they know that they are this kind. However, in these days, people are already accepting the reality that gay people are in existence, and may even exist in their family.
There are many famous gay men and women in history, and many of them are even very popular musicians, scientists, actors, actresses, or even occupying very high positions in governments of rich nations. There many of them as rich and influential businessmen, or occupying very important positions in the business world. Not all of these persons who are gay are “coming out”, as the saying goes though, especially those who are in the very high positions. Because of the acceptance by society given them, some are getting married, since there are also countries that allow same sex marriages. This may not be among all the countries worldwide, but many gays are flocking into countries that allow this kind of marriage.
