Rumours claimed that the Taiwanese singer was ostracised by fellow band members

Posted Image

Singer Aaron Yan's sexuality has always been a mystery since his debut. In 2008, the Taiwanese media caught him behaving intimately with a male member of a variety programme.

Last Saturday, Aaron, one-third of Taiwanese boy band Fahrenheit, was spotted at a gay club in Shanghai, China, after the group's countdown performance. His appearance at the club once again fuelled rumours regarding his sexuality.

That night, a netizen revealed that Aaron was at a renowned gay club in Shanghai, and posted, "Ladies, there goes another of your dreams. Aaron is at a well-known gay bar."

Yesterday, Aaron's record label HIM International responded, "His local friend brought him there," and added that Aaron's friend owned the place.

Furthermore, there were also rumours that Aaron was being ostracised by his band mates Jiro Wang and Calvin Chen.

The sayings came after members of the public recognised Jiro and Calvin at another club and had requested for autographs. The pair turned down the requests, before security escorted them into the club.

Commenting on the rumour about Aaron being ostracised, HIM International expressed, "Aaron had already made plans with his friends, so he didn't go [with Jiro and Calvin]."

Yeah, tell me who your friends are, and I'll tell you who you are. Already an old saying, but still very true.

So, the gay bar is owned by his friend, and he was also taken there by another friend...

Actually, I'm really not surprised by this news. I wouldn't even be surprised if he admits his true sexuality one day. Just by looking at his photos, he looks very homo to me.

Haha, what!! But he has had 3 gfs? I don't think he's gay, he just went there to have fun. Utada Hikaru was once spotted at a lesbian club and does that make her lesbian? Oh c'mon.

George Michael also had tons of girlfriends before he realized he was gay at age 27. There are some people who are already gays even at childhood, while there are some who realized their true sexuality at a later age.

Women going to lesbian clubs have a more different impact as compared to men going to gay bars. I gues it's still part of the double standard this society has.

Anyway, if he really is gay, he will most likely come out in public later when he is not popular anymore. They always do in the end.

I am not saying he is or isn't gay. Not my business, his life, his body. I just find it very naive when people say that a guy cannot be gay because he dated so many girls in the past. There are men who are even married with children but the wife and children are beards. There are men who dated or married women and then eventually came out. George Michael dated the lovely, classy Brooke Shields and a host of other beautiful women before he came out. Elton John was once married, TO A REAL WOMAN and he is as gay as they come. He is even now married to a man.

There is a negative stigma in Asia about gays. Why then would an A-list public figure like Aaron Yan go to a gay bar knowing it coul cause negative publicity and a backlash to his career....go figures, Not that it should but the Asian culture is still so conservative about the gay lifestyle. Taiwan has a lot of gay celebs. Some that even create phantom wives, girlfriends and boyfriends to hide their true sexual preferences. Some even do have wives and girlfriends but these women are their beards.

It doesn't matter if he is or not but the main thing is to be honest about it when needed and when the time is right... There are many that have come out of closest so I guess being gay/lesbian is more accepted now then it was in the past....However, it is still hard for those hardcore traditional asians to accept it... Also, he is still really popular now so even if he was, I don't think he would want to admit it now or else it would affect his image... If he is, he may one day come out... But if we all enjoy his talents, then I don't think many would think it matters if he is gay or not.

Haha, what!! But he has had 3 gfs? I don't think he's gay, he just went there to have fun. Utada Hikaru was once spotted at a lesbian club and does that make her lesbian? Oh c'mon.


Just because you have had girlfriends in the past does not mean that you are not gay. They could have just been coverups... But anyways,whether he is gay or not, only he knows that.... Unless he openly admits it, no one really knows and can only speculate and guess...

Yeah, tell me who your friends are, and I'll tell you who you are. Already an old saying, but still very true.

So, the gay bar is owned by his friend, and he was also taken there by another friend...

Actually, I'm really not surprised by this news. I wouldn't even be surprised if he admits his true sexuality one day. Just by looking at his photos, he looks very homo to me.


I don't think that you can tell if someone is homo by looking at them. In some cases maybe, but not really. In fact, many men that are really gay look even more manly than men that aren't. Therefore, looks cannot dictate if you are truly gay or not...

Typical Cpop fans.
Always homophobic. Always in denial. Please, come on. What's wrong with him being gay? I personally don't really listen to C-Pop, but...I just find some of these replies ridiculous. Instead of laughing or denying it, it would be better for you to say something like "it's all right if he's gay". OPEN YOUR MINDS.


I am open about it but it's just that we don't know if he is or not... It also doesn't matter if he is or not since it doesn't make him a bad person or anything if he is. It's just that no one knows for sure if he is or not...All we can do is guess and speculate because unless he openly admits it, no one knows except for him.

To me, I wouldn't really care. I mean, if Arron's gay, then just let him be. I mean, if he's happy that way, then us fans should just accept it. Also, if he is gay, he is one good looking gay guy. Lol. I just love him to death. But who cares. It's not any of our business, so we shouldn't worry about it. I mean, how long has these news of celebrities being gay/les/bi been going on? FOREVER. So, let's just let it be.

Totally agree and if you are a true fan of his, then you should accept him the way that he is as long as he is happy... Whether he is gay or not is not important...

Thank you for saying.....OPEN YOUR MINDS. I remember my parents saying that when the press/media were speculating about Leslie Cheung, a lot of his rabid young fans were ready to crucify the press. A blind fool could've tell that Gor gor was gay. They siply did not want to accept it, they lived in denial and lashed out at anyone who suggested that Leslie was gay. I was fifteen when he died. I love his mvies, his concerts and his music. I got to meet him and spend time with him and I loved him, still do. He was a remarkable singer and actor. It can be learnt if someone is gay without them admitting it. I personally know a lot of celebs who are gay and they have not divulged it to the public. Anderson Cooper is gay, he does not talk about his private life. Leslie was outed years before he even admitted it. It is funny, because men who are really gay, a person can tell, even if the guys are the dominant males in their relationships. I live in North America and I can pinpoint 95% of the gay men. When I go home to Hong Kong,or visit Taiwan, I can tell the gay ones too. As these men get older, their homosexual tendencies tend to become more noticeble as well, even the celebs. Not all fans are living in denial though Some, like yourself, are aware that these men can be gay, straight or even bi. . We should be here to enjoy their talent, not merit them according to their preference.

Arron gay or not doesn't make him more different than who he is anyway. He is still gorgeous. And I have heard quite a bit about him from people who have had brush ups with him and their stories are that he isn't very straight. A few Taiwanese idols are actually gay but not admitting due to the backlash the Asian Media will give them, which, seriously annoys me, because I know quite a number of gay men and they are seriously awesome. Which is why gay men are attractive, they dress well, they are generally good looking, they know how to talk to men and women, and they are fun. If only Taiwan media/Asian media understands that maybe...

Still will think Arron is adorable if he is gay, maybe more adorable if he is gay :)

And like many other members have said, just because they dated the opposite gender, doesn't mean they can not be gay, rumours around were that he got hurt too badly by a female that it brought out the gay side of him out to the utmost, so maybe he is bi before. Rumours rumours, but we have to realise, that a lot of rumours reported by the Media actually have ounces of truth in them, even celebrities themselves admit that.

And besides, there are also guys who are more flamboyant (the 'tendencies' you speak about) than others but are straight (Darren Criss, anyone?) or gay people that show no traces of stereotypical signs - John Barrowman seems straight as an arrow (and he's gay, not even bi), if you ask me... until he starts making out with guys, that is ;)

Darren Criss is acting as a gay man in Glee, so I don't think that he counts as one of those "flamboyant men". Most of those flamboyant men turns out to be gay like Boy George, George Michael, Chris Colfer and Elton John to name a few. While there are also some gay men whom you think are not because they don't dress up as ones. But nowadays, I think that people are more open-minded and accepting of a person's true sexuality.

From what I know from friends who are gay or lesbian, when they finally told people the truth, a lot of them had a really negative experience because their sexuality was blurted out before they were ready and it gave them a really bad start to their open life.

I personally love Aaron and would be heartbroken if he were gay (<.< <3) but nevertheless, it doesn't change who he is.

In regards to the "3 gfs" thing, i think the point being made was that he's had girlfriends so unless he's REALLY scared to come out, he hasn't "always" been gay as I've picked up people saying in this thread.

On the other hand, to people calling his fans homophobes or whatever, even if he WAS at a gay bar, that doesn't mean he is or isn't gay. I and a lot of my friends go to a local gay bar just because it's fun to go every once in a while.

Long story short, it's his life and another example of press invading celebrity privacy, but whatever, it's a common factor to being a celebrity.

I believe the real issue here is not whether Aaron Yan is a good person or a bad person. The real issue is whether he is gay or not. But being gay doesn't make him less of a person. I believe that in the end, a person's character is far more important than his or her sexuality.

I have heard that gay and lesbian people are actually very nice people,but just have different sexual preferences that's all...It is hard for many celebs to come out of the closest so I guess they need to wait for the timing to be right. It is definately easier now than it was before, but it is still hard in a traditional Asian society where that is heavily looked down on...

I have also heard that Aaron was really hurt by a female in the past that maybe he doesn't trust women anymore?? I think if a rumour is not too ridiculous or occurs over and over again, there is a higher chance of it being true. I have seen that through the years...Maybe it is true that he is gay or bi, however, it doesn't matter since I will like Aaron just like before because that doesn't make him a bad person at all...

Pink sunglasses. Rainbow coloured nailpolish. Does disney songs covers. Overall behaviour (I'm a Darren Criss fan, I should know). Enough said. ;)

But if you want other examples of flamboyantly straight men:

-Prince
-Michael Jackson
-Russell Brand: slept with countless of women, married/divorced Katy Perry and... is flamboyant as hell (so is his friend Noel Fielding by the way).

With Leslie, I don't think he was gay but was bi so it does make sense if he did have a lot of chemistry with his female co stars. He even proposed to Teresa before.... But he could have just became gay in the later part of his life so who really knows?? At least he admitted it and you are right, it is not always easy to guess whether someone is gay or whatever. People can be gay but not act gay while there are others who are straight but act like they are gay, however,they are not gay at all...Therefore, I believe that you cannot truly always tell by just observing someone. The only true way to know is IF that person is honest and straight out admits it....Otherwise, it is hard to tell...

I believe the real issue here is not whether Aaron Yan is a good person or a bad person. The real issue is whether he is gay or not. But being gay doesn't make him less of a person. I believe that in the end, a person's character is far more important than his or her sexuality.


That is true but sadly for a number people, they still think that being gay/bi/lesbian makes them more inferior or less of a person or even a bad person... Luckily, many people are more open now so it is a lot easier for gays/bis and lesbians to come out of the closet. But it is still not easy for many celebs to do so...

He did 'classified' himself as bi because he had girlfriends in the past (and, as you've mentioned, proposed to Theresa) but I'm having my doubts on this. Not because I want to dismiss bisexuality, but because of this incident and quote:

In 1996 when he was filming Wong Kar Wai's 'Happy Together', Gor Gor and Tony had to do a sex scene. Tony was reluctant. When they tried to shoot the sex scene it really shocked Tony, and he refused to do it. For two days he was miserable, lying on his bed. So Leslie went up to him and said, "Look at me, Tony, I've gone through so many scenes kissing, touching girls, grabbing breasts, do you think I really enjoyed it? Just treat it as a job, a normal love scene. I'm not going to fall in love with you, and I don't want you to really have sex with me. You're not my type." (Ooh, Gor Gor, you are so wonderfull <3)

Hm... thanks for the info and IF the above is true, then maybe he was gay and not bisexual.. It's not that it matters anymore, but at least Leslie admitted it... I hope that others who are will have the courage to admit it when the time is right since I think many fans and the public are a lot more accepting now then they were in the past.

Here is a very good biography (from his birth to death, it covered his life and work altogehter) of Gor Gor, I pretty much memorized it by now, you should check it out sometime:

http://xoomer.virgil...biography03.htm

The anecdote is from this page:

And the love of his life:

Wow! I love the conversations going on in here, very open and refreshing.

I have many Lesbian friends, not many gay male friends because we always fight over the same guys and then they get mad at me so I don't hang out with them that much :thumbdown

Look LBGT community is no different from anyone else, they laugh, cry, talk sh*t, gossip and party just like the rest of us. If he decides to come out I hope it is on his terms but it's hard when you have the media constantly trying to "out" you.

As far as dating women then realizing your gay, it happens all the time. My friend got married and we didn't understand why because we knew she was gay but she wasn't ready to accept it herself...Now she's with her partner and they have kids and are happy.

For the men, well we have a term for that..."down low" The stigma in the community is still great otherwise we wouldn't need to have articles or interviews stating someone is coming "out"

In the end, all that matters is Aaron's happiness. I pray he is not torn inside IF this is true and I also pray his bandmates are not ostracizing him and accept him for who he is...

Again, great conversation on the subject!

Here is a very good biography (from his birth to death, it covered his life and work altogehter) of Gor Gor, I pretty much memorized it by now, you should check it out sometime:

The anecdote is from this page:

And the love of his life:

WOW, thanks for all of the links about Leslie's life. I do have some of his books and all so already tidbits here and there but get lazy to read it all... Leslie will be remembered forever... If they can accept Leslie and others that have come out, then I am sure that they will accept Aaron IF he is gay and does come out. Therefore, I don't think he has anything to be afraid of...

I am also enjoying the conversations and discussions here. I am glad that many of us are so open about this and will support Aaron regardless of what his sexual preference is. I don't understand about your friend though. Did she get married and then divorced to be with a woman or what?? How did she have kids if she is with a woman?? Sorry just curious and am a bit confused.

I also hope that Aaron is not torn inside and that his bandmates will love and accept him for who he is. I have a feeling that Calvin, Jiro and even Wu Chun are not those of people and will accept him for who he is...But I must say that he should be honest with them if he wants them to accept him for who he is... But I totally agree that as long as he is happy then that is what is the most important.

Well when she initially divorced him it was for something really basic, she gave up very easily and I remember he was very hurt because he loved her..A few years later, she met her current girlfriend.

When I say they have kids I mean they adopted one daughter and I believe the other daughter is through a surrogate..

Oh ok, thanks for sharing and clarifying... Why did she marry him in the first place if she knew that she was lesbian?? Did her former husband know that??? I feel bad for him...

Who cares if Aaron is gay or not. As a true fan his sexuality isn't important, even if he is gay so what? that doesn't change who he is and it doesn't change his singing or acting ability. I wish him happiness with whoever he wants to be.

Could not agree more. It is smart that you said"does not change WHO he is. If he is gay, it does not define who he is it just defines the what he is. Who is Aaron Yan?. He is a super nice guy, an aspiring actor and a talented singer.Such a sweetheart.

I want to say a few things. A man an have wonderful chesmistry with his female ostars and still be totally gay. Look at Julia Robert and Rupert Everett in My Best Friend's Wedding, great both on and off screen friendship. Rock Hudson had special chestry with a lot of his leading ladies as well. I could go on and on.................../

Some people are bi, that is they are mutually attracted to both sexes. Like Lady Gaga for example. Some men and women are involved with a partner of the opposite sex because they are afraid of shaming their loves ones and it is a facade they are living in. They are rightfully gay but are afraid to be open about their true preference, their jobs and career are on the line, example, celebrities and business exectives etc. A lot of these people live miserable lives not being able to be their true selves. Some people start off being bi and then choose a permanent sexuality, like Leslie. He was not bi during the last twenty years of his life. Leslie was gay. Some closet gays do not date members of the opposite sex beause they just can't bring themselves to do so, due to a lack of interest or chemistry. It is sad that men and women have to lie and create phantom partners, or hide their partners because society will scorn and reject them because of ther sexual preference.. Like a member here said. ....a person's sexuality does not determine or define who that person is.

I don't care if he's gay or not. What matters to me is his talents :)
My cousin is a gay too but for me it doesn't matter as long as he can be a productive citizen/ person
in the country or community. :)

Even if he's had 3 girlfriends, it doesn't mean that he can't come out of the closet now! Whatever his sexuality is, accept it. It's his life, we shouldn't judge!
