I don't think so. It didn't take 24 hours for Media Takeout to print a rebutal, stating that Tyler evaded the question of wheter or not he's gay. They say he danced all around the issue. Read the story in Essence and decide for yourself.

I think people should woorry about themselves.You are a single black man and making it big and that scares white people. So thats y they say that ur gay. Keep ur head up and worry about nobody.In North Preston Dartmouth,Nova Scotia, Canada. In this little community we worry about nobody and we say F# them. They dont have what we have so they try hard to put it on us

So because you work for him that makes you an authority on his sexulity ? Does he take his staff into his confidence about his personal ongoings ? The fact is none of us really know without a shadow of a doubt whether he is or isn't. Only God, Tyler, and his significant others know.

Who cares???? Who really cares??? The Man's work is awesome.. His messages always positive.. People have to always try and find something negative about something positive.. Leave the man alone and let him continue to do God's work..

sometimes when young men are molested , they have a brief period of confusion about their sexuality but later come to understand who they are. Society will have you believe that men who have had encounters with other men, can never be straight but that's the farthest thing from the truth. It it very common for this transformation and I personally know men who,once experienced this confusion , but who are now living with , enjoying, and satisfied with their heterosexuality. Wake up world, there's nothing too hard for God !!!!!!!!!!

I had heard that one before but what's important is the way he lives his life in the present :)
