Really? Really people? He has been married to two different women and has one child with each of them. Sure he was in relationships with men, but that doesn't mean he's gay. It's pretty obvious that he is, or rather was (due to the fact that he himself has stated that his sexual preference has changed over time) bisexual.

David Bowie has had sex with men. As far as this website is concerned, he is gay. The face he's also had sex with women is completely irrelevant. The website isn't "Gay or Straight (or Bi, or got drunk at a frat party at Oklahoma State one weekend)."

David Bowie was indeed Bi-sexual for a long time there, but he is not gay. David has a beautiful wife and daughter whom he both loves very much.

David Bowie announced to Groove magazine that he was straight and the whole Bi think has been a marketing ploy sine the Ziggy Days. He was serious

I hate how people says "who cares if X it's gay?" "I couldn't care less" "That's not people's business" so what you're doing in this page. Sorry it's everybody's business if you jump in other mens and say you're bisexual in every interview when you're young.

Just take it from the man himself: He's bi.
  NATHAN @ 2012-10-07 23 up,3 down
Ask Mick Jagger another Bi.Anyway I'm still a fan of Ziggy Stardust.
  Jim @ 2012-11-01 21 up,13 down
Bowie himself admitted that he had an encounter with a man and he said "It was the worst mistake I ever made", so I think he's straight despite some youthful experimentation.
  KID @ 2012-12-01 25 up,6 down
Bowie did an interview several decades ago where he, in his words, "came out" as straight. He said there was a lot of pressure in the 70s to experiment like everyone else because the androgynous/bi image was a real selling point at the time, so he went along with it but was never comfortable with it.

I'm just in awe over "Ash"'s comment: "he was bisexual for a while, but he's not gay. He has a wife and child he loves very much." "Ash" has no comprehension whatsoever of sexuality, particularly homosexuality or bisexuality. Let me clue you in: You're not "bisexual for a while." Arguments remain on whether you're born or raised into your sexuality (for me, for example, it's the latter - I was molested as a child by my father, and now find purely sexual attraction to men and romantic and sexual attraction to women). Regardless, your sexuality does not change. You don't hook up with Mick Jagger one day, wake up the next, marry a female model, and never find yourself attracted to men again, as you're suggesting Bowie did. That's ridiculous. Kinsey said that sexuality is not black and white, it's shades of grey - I agree, and feel that NO-ONE is purely hetero- or homo-sexual. That's up for debate, too, though. Anyway, your point about his love for his wife and kids proving he's straight is almost as ridiculous as your absurd hypothesis of his mutating sexuality (hope I'm not using too many big words for you - for real, not [entirely] meaning to be nasty). You're implying that, because he loves his wife and child, he can't be attracted to men? How many men have you heard of who do other dudes on the down low? Most of them love their wives and families completely - they're just deprived of something they sexually crave. That's why my plan is to get married, have a fairly open relationship with my wife, and have a hot pool boy who we can both have fun with, maybe together. Anyway, let's not let me get carried away here. POINT IS. Loving your family doesn't make you straight, or gay, or anything. If a man was married to another man who he loved very much, it doesn't mean he might not cheat with a woman. Bisexuals are bisexuals, and David Bowie is, was, and always will be bisexual.

Dazz you are wrong. Sexuality is fluid for many people, not fixed as it is for some.
