It seems there's a reversion war going on as to whether Nelligan was gay. It might be helpful to marshal any evidence about his sexual orientation first. Smerdis of Tlön 23:33, 14 Aug 2004 (UTC)
If it's not mentioned in the article, it should not be randomly appended as a cat. Carolynparrishfan 20:36, 25 March 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]
He definitely was, considering his unealty obsession with Verlaine and Rimbaud...
There is, for the record, extensive speculation about Nelligan's sexuality in contemporary literary criticism; however, it cannot be definitively proven as there is virtually no evidence in any published biographies as to whether he ever actually had a sexual or romantic relationship with anyone. Accordingly, it's appropriate for the article to briefly mention the debate over his sexuality, but not at this time for him to be categorized as gay.
