How do you know / why do you think that Liam is gay and closeted? He seems so happy with Cheryl - much happier than Louis seems with Eleanor. I ship Ziam/Niam but not romantically because I don't see Liam, Zayn, or Niall as being gay. Larry, however, I believe is real.
First of all, I’m going to say that the way a celebrity “looks” is never a good indicator of anything. Part of the job of a celebrity is to project a certain image, so anytime you see them in public, especially at work events or times when there are pap pictures or pictures with fans taken, you have to assume they may be projecting a certain image.
I intended to answer this privately like I usually do for asks that are off anon. I hope you’re ok with me answering publicly instead. I had to save a draft because it was so long and I forgot that takes away the option to answer privately. I know it’s long, but do me the favor of reading the whole thing and looking at all the resources linked before you ask me any other questions about this topic.
