    Seeing two guys obviously in love and holding hands makes me melt! In my ideal world we would all be able to do this without being afraid of getting attacked by ppl like Zee ("I can’t get over how totally WRONG it looks when two men hold hands. So wrong, so wrong…"). WE ARE JEALOUS OF STRAIGHT PPL IN THAT REGARD: what's the worst insult you could hurl @ a straight couple in the same scenario? "Get a room?" Ooh that hurts! Yeah right.

    Jesus Christ on a fucking bike, the litle grey haired fuckstain of a "husband" must be knee high to a fucking grasshopper because that little homma Darren is a fucking short arse. I hope both the cunts get AIDS. Fucking sodomites.

    Darren è veramente un figo vestito in quel modo,sembra quasi un agente del FBI ( ricordate come si vestiva Mulder in X-Files??),mentre a dirla tutta Richard è abbastanza orribile così,è meglio in altre foto e vestito diversamente.Daltronde è inglese:quel taglio di capelli,quel golfino e quelle scarpe proprio non vanno daccordo!

  16. Pee Pee says – reply to this


    I always thought Darren hayes was cute but his husband is really cute!

  26. Jenny says – reply to this


    All the homophobic remarks make me really sad. At a time where we're in constant threat from terrorists and where there is war etc you would think seeing a genuine picture of love would make everyone happy. i'm straight but consider love is love, they feel the same way as 'we' do and I look forward to the day when it is legally and morally excepted everywhere. But I guess from reading some of these comments I can wait a long time! Shame on you!!! So happy for Darren! :)

    not homophobic, it is true, this really is offensive, the dude looks like his dad, or grandfather.

    Sorry to post again but Ive just read some of the comments already here and am really disappointed, these guys are happy and thats all that counts.

  33. Reality Check says – reply to this


    Get Real, all of you.

    You are all hypocrits… you are all quick to judge and hate other celebs for no reason at all, and just because people think that these 2 look disgusting, you think they are homophobic.

    Reality check - it does look like Darren is walking his aging greying Grandpa up Woolloomolloo wharf. No matter what sexual orientation, it is distgusting. It is like seeing Catherine Zeta Jones with Michael Douglas… ha haha .

    Get real.

    To those criticising Richard's appearance:

    Firstly, looks shouldn't be the most important thing. If that's all that matters to you - how shallow you must be!

    Secondly, I was right by Richard at one of Darren's recent shows and I have to say in person he was incredibly cute, looked pretty trim, and also seemed to a most fun, warm and charming person. Maybe you need to stop judging based on a single photo.

    I don't know which of the guys is the luckier, Darren or Richard! But it's great to see them both so happy.

    I didn't think Richard was that short! LOL. That part came as a surprise. They're both so cute. So lucky to have each other.

    Can't wait for the new double disc album to be out!

    P.S. Some of you need to get real. You need to realize that there are same-sex couples out there, so stop being so immature and selectively ignorant.

  66. Observer UK says – reply to this


    Perez thanks for posting this pic and any more will be appreciated and warmly welcomed - as you can see you've made a lot of people very happy. It's great Darren and Richard are obviously revelling in the joys of a CIVIL PARTNERSHIP. Whatever Darren's ex-wife thinks about it all is no one's business but hers. You homophobes on here - not funny, not clever, what century are you living in? … oh listen… the Stone Age is calling you… It's been very impressive to read such sparkling comments from the leaders of the fashion world and as for short me - honestly, don't any of you know why short men are appealling? Now don't forget www.myspace.com/darrenhayes. On the Verge of Something Wonderful - out NOW and This Delicate Thing We've Made released 20 August.

  67. Cathy says – reply to this


    I totally love this picture!! I am so happy that Darren has found his true love in Richard. They just look so 'natural' in this photo. I have been enjoying his MySpace profile as an added friend/fan; love listening to the music, and Richard has done a super job on the animation for 'Who Would Have Thought' video! Great job guys!!! Can't wait for August 20th for the album release!

    ~xxxCathy from Oregon(Toledo)OH~

    WTF? Darren is GAY?!! I always had my doubts, but MARRIED?!! HE GOT MARRIED?! HOLLY GOD WHAT IS HAPPENING TO THE WORLD?!? All the handsome men are gay…. heck… it seems that ALL THE MEN ARE GAY, hot or not!!

  72. Pauline says – reply to this


    Such a beautiful photo of two people in love, I hope they stay looking this happy forever and wish for the day that every other same sex couple will be able to walk along holding hands without fear.

  73. Bex says – reply to this


    That pic is so sweet ^^. Darren is awesome, can't wait for the new album out on the 20th aug! not long to go.

  75. Balynce says – reply to this


    I read Perez every day at lunch (I think I missed yesterday) and then when I get home I check out Darren's MySpace blog so I don't know yet if he's mentioned the Perez post, though a couple days ago he DID mention the fotogs taking pics of him in OZ and I was hoping it would get posted here! (CUTE pic..I'm so glad he finally found love!..) He deserves the attention (albeit good!) since he's on an Indie record label and is a true talent. I first saw Savage Garden live in 2000 (sadly, at two of their LAST US shows) and I finally got to see him solo, two gigs in Chicago this June and wow! I was so impressed by how enigmatic and enjoyable he was! A truly amazing voice to be heard…both his lyrics and his singing! He keeps getting better! I heard his last solo album (The Tension & The Spark—which is amazing by the way!) at a listening party for fans in SF (I met him there and he was SOOO sweet and friendly–we talked about his Prince references on his Solo CD "Spin) there aren't many down to earth famous folks that I've met!) I've pre-ordered the new album in the US and am looking forward to it! I have been going myspace and playing his new tracks "Who Would Have Thought" and "Step Into The Light" over and over again…also his video of Prince's "Thieves in the Temple" rehearsal… And to those who gay bash, it's truly sad since for gay males, just like skin color it's not a choice so why treat them like you are racist? Due to hormonal imbalance in their mothers while pregnant or environmental factors (the same ones that are causing Estrogen Dominance/Endometriosis/Infertility in large percentages of women in the population), just like any other supposed deformities, it's not a choice. I'm straight, and I know this. The only people I've met who dis others had low self esteem and did so in order to feel better about themselves. I can tell from Darren's lyrics he was truly torn up over being brought up that gay is wrong and his personal turmoil, and how happy he is now. Good for him! Can't wait to see him on the big tour of the US! PS..I don't care if people hate on me for my comments or even if I was gay, it's their problem to deal with (closed minded) … I'm not a hater :)

  76. Selbs says – reply to this


    Absolutely love this pic! They deserve all happiness in the world and I'm so glad they've found each other! I got lucky enough to talk to Richard at one of Darren's recent gigs and he's the sweetest ever!! Couldn't be happier for them.

  77. Allyson says – reply to this


    If you're suggesting that Endometriosis is some kind of a cause when a mother gives birth and that a child will grow up being gay or a lesbian, there is no medical evidence for that. Unless you are a doctor, i suggest you keep you're bloody opinions to yourself!!

  78. Victoria says – reply to this


    Wow… i am so happy for your new lover.

  79. Miki says – reply to this


    He should have stayed married to a woman, then his career would never have fizzled. I guess he will always be in turmoil, for the deception he carrier out on his wife (poor soul) and us, the public who bought Savage Garden music and concert tickets.
    In the end he did the tru honest thing for himself and broke off his marriage to a woman, and took up bed with a man in London and San Francisco. Now he is amongst his own kind (which you are here reading this), has a new fan base and a new happiness.
    Deep down, he will always be traumatised by his past. That is life.
    I still think Ryan Reynolds would have been a better match.. seems like Drew Barrymore and her gay crownies have a lot to answer for at their soirees matching up celebs who should NOT be matched up. It is so hard being in the spotlight.
    Darren your voice still rocks. Good Luck.

    The picture of these 2 naked in bed with their jiggly bits rolling around is makin me puke!
    I never knew he was a Homosexual. That is ok for some, but still those jiggly bits, I wonder if Richards are grey down there?? Like Lindsay Lohan is called Firecrotch, can we also endorse to call Richard Oldmancrotch? Greycrotch? smokycrotch? invalidcrotch?
    What do you think?

  81. Zee says – reply to this


    smokycrotch !!

  82. ladylighter says – reply to this


    This is disturbing.
    No ones comments here make sense, especially all the homo ones.

  83. Sue says – reply to this


    Is that true about Endometriosis ?? Being some kind of a cause when a mother gives birth and that a child will grow up being gay or a lesbian !! Are there studies on this??

    I never heard of that?

  84. Zee says – reply to this


    No, on secondthoughts "invalidcrotch".
    This makes more sense.

  85. yellaK says – reply to this


    I vote - Invalidcrotch

    can #177 please clarify your reference on Endometriosis !!

    I found this

    Researchers have known for years that a man's likelihood of being gay rises with the number of older biological brothers. But the new study found that the so-called "fraternal birth order effect" persists even if gay men were raised away from their biological families.
    The research suggests that the development of sexual orientation is influenced before birth," said Bogaert, a professor of community health sciences at Brock University in St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada.

    Bogaert and a colleague first reported the older-brother effect a decade ago. According to Bogaert, men with no older brothers have about a 2 percent to 3 percent chance of being gay. If they have three or four older brothers, the rate goes up to about 5 percent.

    About 20 studies have reinforced the link between fraternal birth order and male homosexuality, Bogaert said. However, no similar link has been found in lesbians.

  89. Sue says – reply to this


    rest of news article reported on MONDAY, June 26 (HealthDay News)
    ..under.. Homosexuality Again Linked to Biological Factors
    " ..Bogaert said he launched his new study to better understand the fraternal birth order effect. "Is it a biological phenomenon? Or is it psychological or have to do with rearing?" he said.

    To find the answer, Bogaert examined surveys of 944 Canadian men, both gay and straight, about their sexuality and their families.

    The older-brother effect was constant regardless of whether the men were raised with natural, adopted or stepbrothers. It also didn't matter if they weren't raised with their biological mothers.

    If gay younger brothers and older brothers don't have the same home environments, what do they have in common? "They shared the same uterus, the same womb, the same mother," Bogaert said.

    His findings are published in this week's issue of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

    The next step is to figure out exactly how biology contributes to homosexuality, said Sven Bocklandt, a postdoctoral researcher at the University of California, Los Angeles, who applauded the new research.

    "For me as a molecular geneticist, this study opens a new path of research into the biology of sexual orientation," Bocklandt said.

    According to Bocklandt, one avenue of study would be to test the blood of mothers with multiple male sons to see whether their immune systems might be more likely to target genes linked to homosexuality.

    Earlier this year, Bocklandt was co-author of a study that found that nearly one-quarter of women with multiple gay sons showed signs of genetic differences from other women. "
