I have been trying to as this for a long time," Was Shakespeare, gay?"
His sonnets give a slight hint about this, because most are addressed to a male patron.
As far as i know, he was not gay.....even though some of his writings might have suggested it. There is no evidence that he was gay unless I have missed something.
I have heard both...that he was and that he wasn't. The reality is, we can speculate forever but we will never truly know whether he was or not.
'To be or not to be,
this is the question
Wether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune
or to take harm against a sea of troubles...
To die, to sleep, no more...'
Who knows? Nobody does.
How can we tell when Shakespeare's true identity is still not known for sure. He might have been anyone from Roger Bacon to the illegitimate son of Queen Elizabeth to the usually thought of man from Stratford on Avon. Not sure you could tell from his sonnets; but who knows?
Dude, nobody is even very sure who William Shakespeare was. Edward De Vere was a great candidate.

I'm afraid that his sexual habits are. . . .rather unavailable on the evidence end of the spectrum. All the world's a stage, and in our time, we all get to . . . .be forgotten.

Many people find Shakespeare's work as 'tough'; but those who do understand, do understand what a genius he was. But was he a good poet?
