I think Tupac was Downlow Gay and Everyone thinks I'm crazy

It's my position that the late Tupac Shakur was a gay man living his life as a straight man. I have a problem with that.

So basically I watched a documentary called, " Tupac Hoax Revealed" and it blew me away. There is a section of the series titled, " What if Tupac was...." I was floored by the incriminating evidence that suggested that Tupac may have been bi or a gay man living his life as a straight man. I don't like to obsess over people's sexuality, that's not the issue. The issue I'm having is, if he was a gay man portraitng this hardcore thug, then he is responsible for a lot of damage occurring in the black community.

See, he was a role model. Many generations came up listening to Pac. I know I did. That was my guy. Even though I'm a woman, he had a message for me too. Keep ya head up. Black men however, have an undying reverence for him ( unless he's a biggie fan). If he was a gay man playing this role, then he mislead a lot of young men. That's a problem!

People don't give YouTube documentaries a lot of credit and rightfully so. Most of them are poorly put together and rooted in speculation. This particular documentary however, is pretty convincing, if you can get over the cringy music. Whoever put it together presented authentic photos of Tupac in incriminating situations that we ( the audience) never questioned. For example, my title picture. What could have possibly been getting ready to take place here? Tupac was the only one with no shoes on. His pants wrapped around his ackles. What's up with the guy in front of him? Looks like he ready for Pac to top him off ijs. This isn't even the worst of it. He definitely had a special relationship with his boys. I could run a list of examples but its best to check it out and form your own opinion. A famous YouTuber who has a reputation for speaking ill of black women did a video giving his opinion on it. He also feels Mr. ThugLife was actually Mr. ButtLife.

Now, the reason why this is such a problem is that Tupac basically sold black men prison culture. Think about it. He was always in and out jail. He was always beefing with somebody. He was gang affiliated. He wore his pants under his butt and even though pants are a lot tighter these days they are still below the cheeks. In Pac's so called later years he was violent and out of control. His influence still reigns. What has Tupac done for the image of the black man? Yes, in the beginning he told sad stories about what it's like to be black and poor. But what if we got tricked? I mean the first time he got shot, it didn't even leave wounds and I know for a fact bullets burn the skin. But we just gonna keep ignoring the trojan horse in the room.

I got drug up and down Facebook for my opinion on the matter. Just because it was Tupac. I got called crazy, people were saying " oh you big mad". Why are we so afraid to hold our leaders accountable? Maybe if we hold our leaders accountable, we could break some of the mindsets that aren't beneficial to us.

That downlow gay stuff is lame but its really an epidemic. My sister and I both have entertained men who... entertain men. That's why this issue is so important for me to speak on. Men go to jail/prison straight and come out gay ( not all). Prison rape is real. These men be in jail/prison with boyfriends and come home and try to be straight again but end up living a double life. How fair is that to the women involved? CDC.gov says that black men are five times as likely to be infected with HIV/AIDS in prison as a white man and twice as likely as a hispanic man. In 2006, 17,528 black people were diagnosed with the disease. 58% of them were gay/bi black men.

April 06, 2012 Rolling Out magazine says, “ “Men who have sex with men (MSM) bear the greatest burden of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)/acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) in every state in the U.S., but their populations are poorly defined.”

I don't know how many was I have to spell it out. Tupac wasn't good for the culture. He was just an actor playing a role.

You can't count on images to be real. The style he was wearing his pants in was modern back in the day evn in the early 2000. I worked in a night club.Young men had their pants so far down that dead bird was almost falling out.He was not gay and I am a woman. But I have seen one clip of Tupac dress in a black leader top where he look very much like a gay man. Nothing wrong about being gay or bio.He did go to prison for grabbing a WOMANS BEHIND. I do not think that we should overthink things, put more in to things that it is.It's not like Tarot cards. ; - ) No matter what or where he is.I wish for him to be happy, loved and safe.Tupac is not responsible for other peoples lifes and how they turned out. People are.We own out own choices. No one become something they are not already. Everything has it's time, so if a man walks in through the gates of prison and come back out as a gay. He has always been a gay, he just didn't know he was. Allow people to find them selfs as long as it is legal sort of speak and not forcing them selfs on others. May blessings be giving to you all when you need them the most.

Here’s what I think... who cares if Tupac was a gay or bi man on the DL? If anything, that would make him a man that showed the world that you can be a masculine man and still be gay or bi. His sexuality was none of my business or anyone else’s he wasn’t having sex with. This writer is just a bitter female who is upset by the notion that women may have had to share this handsome man with men, too. Let him Rest In Peace. The woman needs to address her own issues on sexuality and what a role model is and is not. I’d be more concerned about his thug image and being a role model than I would be about his sexual identity being the poor role model. You CAN control your ability to be a thug... but you can’t change your sexuality. Nobody goes in jail straight and comes out gay. They may experiment, but that does not make someone gay... it says they were horny in prison.

As far as Pac possibly selling a false narrative to the black community by selling his "thug" persona while secretly gay...why can't a gay man be a warrior? A thug? I've seen all the evidence pf his homosexuality and I too believe he was a down-low dude. However, he was always the same Pac with the same warrior mentality, he just had to adjust the accessibility of that facet of his persona to reach the fan base he needed to reach the most. And being human as he was, he got caught up, at times, in the rarified air of a life that none of us willever be able to taste. Until i know what it's like to walk in the shoes of someone who is deified by millions of people, i won't judge the missteps and fallibility of those who are exposed to an unimaginable set of pressures, temptations and ability to satisfy his every whim with the e ase of sending a text message (for example, i have no idea how famous people operate)

Pac wasn’t just acting a role! He was a soldier!! He wasn’t afraid of death! He was tired of the kind of world he was born into...

A man who got turned on by a woman smiling back at him is gay?!?! I don’t understand humans anymore! A man who loved sex with women is gay?!? A man who tells his woman to walk around the house naked is gay? Y’all must be crazy!

His alcohol intake was the cause of him not having a child. He wanted to be a father! He wasn’t gay! He loved women! He hung around his crew because of his music! Music was his soul!! He knew he had limited time left so he did all he could do! Same thing you guys doing to micheal Jackson legacy u wanna do it to pac. Police hated him because he was part of the black panther campaign and he was loud about his rights and getting the respect he deserved but it seems all he did still the pass the message.

I pray that this person who has this biased comment to write about pac never knows peace, Amen! May everything about you be riddiculed Amen! May you always wear shame like a cloth Amen! If you feel you can tarnish pacs name and legacy. Who ever you are who published this article you shall never ever know peace till you die Amen! You can do anything for clout but you shall get shot 5 times and people won’t believe you got shot! You shall die young fighting for a purpose and you shall never get recognition Amen! Imagine this fool saying he was guy! Ask yo momma I’m sure pac fucked her silly!

Pac wasn't gay. You said he didn't get shot in Quad Studio in 94? What is your agenda? Everyone knows he got shot. 2 bullets hit his head, 1 bullet passed through his groin, 1 bullet in his hand, etc, etc. The NY thugs, (paid off by Jimmy Henchman), tried to jack Tupac in the elevator. None of Tupac's friends had weapons. Tupac fought back against them with no gun on him. After he got shot 5 times, he went up the elevator, and looked at Jimmy Henchman, Puffy, and Biggie in their eyes. Like a Lion. Tupac had inner strength, he was a revolutionary. He shot two white, undercover cops, who were bullying a black man, in Atlanta. Tupac = Legend.

Growing up I always just assumed he was.. everyone said I was crazy too but I'm pretty convinced my instinct was right as there is mounting evidence (circumstantial, at least) and others out there that think so too. I doesn't really matter, but with people like Jussie Smollet saying he wanted to be "gay 2Pac," it would just be nice to know I guess.

This was the most absolutely eye opening and well articulated article I've ever read on the state of modern black culture. If this thesis was presented on mainstream media for all to see, I guarantee there would be some major changes in our current world. We've all been sleeping on this. We've been distracted by the bread and circus, while they've literally destroyed decency and family and all that was once considered righteous. It's all been thinly veiled right in front of eyes. We may be far gone, but it's never too late for a revival and a revolution. Tribulation is near and the dividing line is being drawn.

While I respect a person's choice to love who they please, the purpose of this article was to highlight that his "gangsta" persona could have been detrimental to several generations behind him. He was a powerful influence to many black men and still is today. What are the odds that many black men are in fact closeted homosexuals but carry on this same macho persona as an attempt to mislead anyone who may suspect them?

This a very interesting article. I will say that it is rooted in speculation, much like the documentary that inspired it. Whether or not Tupac was a gay man, the messages presented in a lot of his music (not all) were very positive, uplifting, and conscious. I can see the argument, but the facts presented do not actually support the argument that "Tupac wasn't good for the culture". I won't make any personal attacks, but definitely be aware of how your personal experiences with men who like men influences any of your opinion articles.
