Let's say that they were. Would it make any difference?

Alan Turing, Oscar Wilde.

Oscar Wilde, Truman Capote, King James I, a variety of Roman emperors - most famously Nero (though hard to classify him as strictly gay), Hadrian, and several lesser known rulers. Those are the names that immediately come to mind, although I'm sure I will remember more later.
