Billy Dee Williams Denies Being Gender Fluid: ‘I’m Not Gay By Any Stretch of the Imagination’

Published: Wednesday 4th Dec 2019 by Rashad

Veteran actor Billy Dee Williams earned praise aplenty last week when excerpts from an interview with ‘Esquire’ magazine suggested the 82-year-old identified as gender fluid.

“I never tried to be anything except myself,” he shared with the men’s mag. “I think of myself as a relatively colorful character who doesn’t take himself or herself too seriously. You see I say ‘himself’ and ‘herself,’ because I also see myself as feminine as well as masculine.”

Yet, while the applause rang in, some detractors of the enduring heartthrob criticized his decision to go public with statements perceived to be “coming out.”  The hoop-la finally encouraged Williams to clarify his statement on the matter.

Taking to our friends at ‘The Undefeated,’ look inside to see just what he said:


“Well, first of all, I asked last night, I said, ‘What the hell is gender fluid?’ That’s a whole new term,” Williams admitted, saying his quotes were misunderstood.“What I was talking about was about men getting in touch with their softer side of themselves. 

Continuing, the 82-year-old revealed:

“I was talking about men getting in touch with the female side of themselves. I wasn’t talking about sex, I wasn’t talking about being gay or straight. I’m not gay — by any stretch of the imagination. Not that I have anything against gay people. But personally? Not gay.”

      @A&R Who Cares?

      The gay agenda tried to take advantage of this senile old legendary actor.

      AMEN Billy Dee. Set the record straight. I knew u wasn’t gay! I knew ur words being taken advantage of! The men who are closeted and float the boat are more like Common and not old school like you are! If u don’t lay down with gay men how are you gender fluid????? You are just accepting and loving of gays like I am which makes u a humanitarian not a gender bender.

      I’m SICK of u demon! I’m used to men hitting on me and wanting to be with me since I was 12 years old but u are another type of BEAST. U are the kind of MAN who wants to BE ME! Why are u stealing my username and pretending to be female when u are a male? SHUT IT U F A G DEMON! I am OK with men who wish they were females so why can’t u get your own identity. U ARE NOT ‘Jasmine’ SO F U CK OFF. I am on the ONLY JASMINE on this site and I was born female! Anybody else using ‘Jasmine’ as their username is a male WISHING they were me! I started commenting on TGJ on 2009 so I expect SAM to enforce the username ‘Jasmine’ as mine only because I derserve that and if this continues I will leave TGJ again and leave this site again and it will suffer super low comments and sponsors! PUT some RESPECT on my name and no my name is NOT to be used by impersonators and wannabys!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

    His comments were taken way out of context. He didn’t say anything at all about being gay.

    You people are stupid. He can be gender fluid and still be heterosexual.
    This isn’t a “denial” of gayness.

    This headline needs to be reworded. Especially since That Grapejuice is run by gay men. Smh

    • Mira December 5, 2019

      He said in plain no uncertain terms, “I’m not gay”. If that’s not a denial, I dunno what is.

  5. only facts December 5, 2019

    Billy….no. You came out as gender f*cking fluid. Own it. This has been news all week and NOW you want to deny it?

  6. Jasmine Monet December 5, 2019

    Jasmine you’re a Turkey ?

  7. i ain’t even LYING bOO December 5, 2019

    fix your headline.. he’s denying being GAY, he’s not denying being gender fluid- he just does not understand this new terminology. This incorrect headline does a disservice to your LGBTQ following. then again, by constantly posting the anti-lgbtq hate from azealia banks, maybe you;’re just showing us your true colors….,
