Sherlock Holmes Is Queercoded

I just had to share this post about Code Words For “Gay” In Classic Films. Don’t several of them sound like the famous detective we all know and love? “Eccentric”? “Limber”? “Wears a hat of someone else’s choosing”?

“Avowed bachelor”?

“Has a silk bathrobe”?

And I know I’m using BBC Sherlock as the specific example, but even in the original ACD fiction, the signs are there. Go, read it. You’ll see.

But yeah. Confirmed queer.
