Best Answer

James Buchanan

For many years in Washington, D.C. prior to the presidency, James Buchanan lived with William Rufus King, who was earlier Vice President under Franklin Pierce in 1853. King was referred to by Andrew Jackson as "Miss Nancy" while Aaron Brown called him "Buchanan's better half." Buchanan actually wrote long, intimate letters to King.

There were many rumors at the time that Buchanan was a homosexual. He is, after all, the only president to never marry in his life. But whether or not he was a homosexual continues to be a point of heated debate between historians. (Steve Tally discusses King and Buchanan's relationship in more depth in his book Bland Ambition: From Adams to Quayle--The Cranks, Criminals, Tax Cheats, and Golfers Who Made It to Vice President.)"

"Some historians have speculated that King may have been homosexual, and that he had a long-term intimate relationship with President-to-be James Buchanan (it is not disputed that the two lived together for 16 years in Washington). It is also said that King's detractors in the Senate referred to him as "Aunt fancy" and "Miss Nancy" (both language referring to homosexual men in the nineteenth century). The theory is controversial and a source of debate among Buchanan and King historians. Historian and author James Loewen is one of the theory's better-known proponents. Presidential historian Michael Beschloss when asked by C-SPAN founder and host Brian Lamm if the United States had ever had a gay president responded that the term "gay" was a twentieth century construct. Undeterred, Lamm rephrased his question, asking if the nation had had a homosexual president. Beschloss replied that it appears Buchanan and King may have been homosexual."

Many historians believe that James Buchanan was indeed a homosexual who had a hidden relationship with, at the time, Alabama Senator William Rufus King.

As far as we know, none of them ever were gay, although there may have been a gay person in one of their families. Keep in mind that until fairly recently, being gay was a crime in many states, so no politician would have discussed it in public, or it would have ended their career. There have been rumors spread about various candidates over the years, but these rumors were generally not about their sexual orientation. And since you are asking, there is an internet rumor about Barack Obama being gay, but there is absolutely no credible evidence to support it.

There is only one president with even a suspicion of being gay and that is James Buchanan who never married but was engaged to woman when he was young and was never observed in any activities that suggested homosexual behavior.
