Was Malcolm X Gay?!?!?

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayLGBT

was malcolm x gay

According to a new book about the civil rights leader, the answer is YES!

The bound-to-be-controversial book claims that Malcolm X had "an early homosexual relationship with a white businessman."

Wowsa! We'll admit we didn't see that one coming…and we're pretty sure we are NOT alone.

Do U think the book's claims about Malcolm X are true?

    If the story was Malcolm X was jewish instead of gay you would NEVER post it on your site. But because its another fucking gay story you have to force it down everybodys throat. You are so pathetic and predictable!

  2. 2

    Oh no you didn't! The blacks are gonna lynch you for that.

  3. 3

    No. It's incredibly easy to make up stuff like this. For example, if Perez (whom I've never even met) predeceases me, I could easily write a book alleging that he had a steamy heterosexual affair with one of my female friends. All it takes is some imagination and free time. You might want to independently investigate claims like this before you go around spreading rumors about people who aren't alive to rebut misinformation about themselves.

  4. 4

    It shouldn't matter. Alexander the Great, Richard the Lionheart, Lawrence of Arabia, Cecil Rhodes - all gay - doesn't make them any less great.

    a lot of black men are what they call "on the down low"
    they are gay but not admitting to it themselves or others because gay is a lot less acceptable in the black community for some reason
    so these men continue to have have secret sex with other men and live their lives as if they were not

    very common-you'd be surprised probably
    I remember thinking that Star Jones husband might have been on the down low-not sure why….just got that vibe

  6. 6

    I wish i was his gay lover He is one of my idols

  7. 7

    im pretty sure he was also a tranny chaser

  8. 8

    I heard he had a tramp stamp "X" right above his 2hole. Target practice

    Bullshit! i mean if it were true the media would have dug it up long ago.

  10. 10

    So is that why he was so angry?

  11. 11

    Some background info would be nice Perez like who wrote the book, what proof do they have, is it third party accounts etc., ultimately it's not important though people remember Malcom X for his activism not his romantic relationships.

  12. 12

    This is sadly why homosexuals won't attain equality. If he was gay what does it matter? (R.I.P: Celebrity blog site)

  13. 13

    I do not even see how this is relevant. Did he ever say he was against gays? I really hate this one sided issue of being gay. We know you are gay, we accept it, we know you love everything gay, but it is not necessary to put random threads for everything Lady Gaga or gay. It is suppose to be a CELEBRITY BLOG

  14. 14

    ONE relationship with a man doesn't make you gay. Sheesh! I ate shell peanuts once, doesn't make me an elephant.

    Re: Tsinakis – haha you said "force it down everybody's throat"

    Re: MJJ – The author is the late Columbia University Professor Manning Marable. Sadly, he passed away last Friday of a lung ailment (he'd had chronic lung problems and even received a double lung transplant some months ago). The book was published three days later, on Monday.
    Prof. Marable won't be around to give interviews to support his controversial assertions. Among the more explosive charges is that Malcolm X's assassin is a man who is living freely in Newark, NJ and was never charged in the murder.
    But, of course, the homosexual allegation will possibly eclipse the true crime aspect. The mainstream media is focusing on that for sure. But let's remember that Malcolm X married Betty Shabazz and had 5 daughters and lived a heterosexual lifestyle.

  17. 17

    How dare you defame this man!!!! He was a man of God…period. To be gay is an abomination of God. Do your research before you post ignorance like this! And before any of you start with the "Bible thumping", "God loves me cuz I'm gay nonsense", " I was born this way"…etc. I could care less. God created us in his image…was God gay?????

  18. 18

    no i dont believe it. he didnt like white people that much( if you couldnt tell) . unless it was way before he became a muslim and a black rights leader.

  19. 19

    Well I'm sure he wasn't the only black leader to be on the down-low….

  20. 20

    I made an error in my previous post: Malcolm X and Betty Shabazz had SIX daughters, not 5.

  21. 21

    Marable was just following up on previously established fact. The first time real allegations of non-heteronormativity came out was in 1991 with Bruce Perry's biography, Malcolm: The Life of a Man Who Changed Black America. And if you've seen Spike Lee's biopic, you'd see the insinuation there, too.

  22. 22

    a similar book is alleging the exact same thing about Ghandi. its a scam to get free publicity - not true. as journalists say 'you cant slander the dead' - you can upset their families though so maybe these things should be left alone. unless the writer can come up with some solid proof and a reason why its relevant now - theres just no reason to help make these things public.

    Re: MochaTai – you are retarded.

  24. 24

    Because he was either popped, or did the popping, doesn't mean he was gay. He could have experimented with it, and didn't like it.

  25. 25

    Re: ParisIsBurning – Would appreciate if you didn't use the term 'the blacks'

  26. 26

    NO ONE was out in 1965 when he was brutally murdered.

  27. 27

    Re: MochaTai – This man was not a man of God. This man was ignorant and racist. He taught that white people were a race of devils who were created by an evil scientist named Yakub.

  28. 28

    Either way… he was a prolific speaker. :)

  29. 29

    first of all what does it matter if he was gay or not, that doesn't mean anything to what he did/achieved. Secondly Re: MochaTai – what is wrong with you? God loves everyone, people like you disgust me, using God's name as a reason for your sickening hatred. You should be ashamed of yourself, God is all about love no matter race, nationality OR sexual orientation, none of these things change who a person is on the inside. Just think you so called "Christians" are spreading hate and along with that making people feel ashamed of who they are, you are just a bully and have in effect probably killed someone with your vile opinions.

    Here comes Spike Lee, and he doesen't look too happy.

  31. 31

    u wont be happy til everyones gay. isnt that a little creepy of you. good luck with this one tho Prezzie, you just pissed off a bunch of completely the wrong people hahahha. YOU'RE NEXT!

  32. 32

    Big deal. Who cares if he was?

  33. 33

    Re: Tsinakis – U do realize that u are on a GAY MAN'S blog right?

  34. 34

    I think from what I have read and we know he was a wild young man before his "awakening" in prison. Notice I said young man- he "grew up". People do crazy things as they try to figure out who they are as they grown into their mature selves.
    Without someone stepping up and claiming their alleged relationship and offering evidence this speculation about if he did or didn't is really b.s. I'm white and from the south and really could care less; I suppose it might be important to some people…the guy has been dead since the sixties. If many here refuse to believe MJ could have had improper relations with children why drag a matter up that we know even less about…let the dead rest.

    Gay is a political term, someone has to self-describe as "gay" to be GAY. homosexuality in varying degrees is desire and behavior. maybe he was lured into a brief relationship with this man, maybe he had daddy issues? who knows where he actually fell in the homo to hetero spectrum, it is broad, but life and society makes us choose one or the other.

  36. 36

    lol, this post was only 2-3 posts under the story where you called Blake Sheldon tasteless for calling Jake Gyllenhall gay.

    You make it too easy Marion

  37. 37

    Malcolm X was pretty cool. Using the mathematical symbol for "unknown" was such an interesting concept for the descendant of slaves. I do have a problem with Betty Shabazz though. She benefited from his name, but did not contribute to his legacy.

  38. 38

    it's called defemation of character.

  39. 39

    Re: MochaTai – Being gay isn't evil in gods eyes. The bible was created by the counsel of nicea and they were at war with the pagans and they wanted everthing that had to do with pagan rituals abolished so they wrote they're own rules in the bible that said men that ley with men are evil because in pagan rituls men had sex with other men to get closer to there god if you don't believe me read a history book and stop being so nieve. By the way I don't think Mr. X was gay either.

    Re: PrinceD
    Prince D is this a "real" picture of U/ Because if it is U are one fine brother!!

    You would love that, wouldn't you? Aren;t you perpetuating the exact same thing Blake Shelton did at the CMAS?

    He had a parcel of kids. A bit of Down lo, if true, would only make him Bi.

    Re: MochaTai – Your god created the gay community and granted us the free will to live our lives. It is mere mortal men that have taken upon themselves to say god completely fucked up. His son, jesus christ never uttered a single syllable about homosexuality being wrong. NOT ONE…Do you know better than your lord and savior? Do ya. Hell no you don't you self righteous ass.

  46. 46

    He looks pretty gay…so i am not surprised.

  47. 47

    Bullshit way to get media attention for a book.

    Welcome to the Gay-GaGa-Glee website folks! Same shit, different day.

  48. 48

    seems to me, if there was any truth to this, the government would have brought it up during the 60s when they were trying to discredit him.
