So… It just so happens that I had a number of conversations with RL friends about Harry & Louis recently. About the mass of eyebrow-raising — and frankly fascinating — coincidences surroundings their relationship. And, y’know, since I already put this stuff together, I figured: why not share it?
Disclaimer 1: No one knows anything ever. There is no way to be 100% certain about what is going on in the lives of people who are, essentially, strangers to us. But I also don’t believe in censoring speculation about a potential gay couple when people speculate about straight couples all the damn time. Shunning discussion because it’s two guys rather than a het couple? Hell no. That would imply that gay is an insult.
Disclaimer 2: I included a number of links (without overloading it with too much stuff) to back up the different points. I was careful in assembling this, but should a mistake have crept in there, let me know.
Warning 1: I don’t think it’s in any way okay to approach the boys about “Larry”, or their families or whatever. It’s an invasion of privacy, and not okay. Ever. If they’re in a relationship, it is theirs. Not ours. (See here and here.)
Warning 2: Please do not post this on Twitter, thanks.
Warning 3: If you are absolutely and completely opposed to the possibility of H&L being anything but straight and / or more than dude bro pals, you might want to give this a miss. If, however, you are at least willing to consider the possibility, you might find this interesting. (I started out highly skeptical. So did two of my friends — one of them, just a few months ago, even told me that he hated “those Larry shippers”. And yet we all got to a point when the word ‘coincidence’ felt remarkably overused and inadequate.)
