Oh, has Ian Buchanan finally come out publicly? Good for him.
I'm sure they're all quietly out in private life, that's no secret. What makes me take notice at this point is when they make a point to let the world know despite the cloistered daytime transparent shield.
Based on their Instagram, Ian Buchanan.
The speculation about Susan Flannery is also 20+ years, but at this point in her life (retired and turning 82 next month) she may not feel the need to be open publicly, but for all we know she could be open among her family/friends.
Def keep the beard.
It's about time the soap industry's longstanding glass closet began to break - first Rikaart and guys like Tuc Watkins, Lachlan Buchanan or Nic Robuck (after they left their respective soaps, although Tuc was on OLTL 2013 following publicly coming out), now this. Not sure I can remember who else; Beth Ann Bonner was after she left OLTL, though Clementine Ford was on Y&R at the same time. I'm not sure Susan Flannery ever publicly came out. I still feel Y&R should weave both Fisher brothers' bisexuality into the story, a la Todd Haynes' Far from Heaven.
