RuPaul Talks About Having An Open Relationship!
“If He Needs To Do Something Else, I’m Fine With That.”
MAMA! Oh my goodness, what is up with gay couples not being monogamous?! It wasn’t long ago Ricky Martin spilled the tea about his open marriage and we begged the question on if we should support the polygamy. I’ve witnessed quite the debate regarding open relationships on social media in the past. The two sides of the argument are: Negative for having society look at the LGBTQ – or more specifically, gay – community disgracefully for sexual promiscuity. On the other hand, many support multiple partners although you’re married or dating, as gay relationships are completely different from our heterosexual allies. While it’s become known many gay celebrity couples don’t tend to sleep only with one another, would you ever imagine RuPaul Charles would be a part of the polygamy wave?
According to Vulture, in the very same article which had half of the community turning against him: One quote was overlooked. RuPaul believes the success of his 24-year relationship – now marriage – to George LeBar – is being open! Yes, as in, sleeping with other people if you gotta get some cake while it’s hot. The article prefaces RuPaul’s statement with the fact RuPaul and George live in separate states for periods of time. RuPaul tells:
“[George] and I are very respectful of one another. He and I know that on this planet where there are millions and millions of people, the person I have found on this planet that I like the very most is him. And I know that for him the person he loves the most on this planet is me. I know that; there’s no doubt in my mind. So if he needs to do something else somewhere else, I’m fine with that. He is respectful of me. He would never turn it into something that would make me feel uncomfortable, and I wouldn’t do that to him either. To have that on this planet is crazy. It’s rare. The truth of the matter is that there aren’t many people that I like. I’m usually bored by people, you know. I’d rather be alone reading a book or something.”
This may be an unpopular opinion, but I’m completely for this! While an open relationship likely isn’t in the cards for me; relationships are unique to the two parties involved and it’s really no one’s business. To be honest, I’m shocked RuPaul admitted such a personal detail. However, it seemed to be overlooked with the controversial Transgender comments.
Through all of this, we recently informed you a study has shown the younger generation of gays want relationships with only two persons involved, so perhaps there’s hope in the future for those who don’t approve.
