Gore Vidal with JFK

Gore Vidal, who died in 2012, had been a friend of the J F Kennedy family and of the Clintons.

Gore Vidal reportedly slept with Ana├»s Nin and enjoyed close friendships with women including Claire Bloom and Joanne Woodward. 

Young Gore Vidal

When Gore was 10, his parents divorced.

Gore's alcoholic mother told Gore how, on the way to their honeymoon, Gore's father said: "There's something very important I want you to know. I have three balls."

Gore says of his mother: "She was a shit. A drunken shit."

Gore Vidal: Literary feuds, his 'vicious' mother and rumours of a secret love child

Gore Vidal  is famous for writing about Abraham Lincoln and certain other people considered to have taken an interest in boys.

Vidal's novel The City and the Pillar (1948) was one of the first major American novels about gay people.

Vidal saw the terms "homosexual" and "heterosexual" as misleading, and believed that people are bisexual.

"Paul Newman and Gore Vidal shared ... Joanne Woodward, in the late 1950s, living as a happy threesome for a while. 

"Paul and Gore remained close throughout the '60s, until Gore's live-in 'husband' got him to vamoose for Italy and away from the sultry arms of the box-office star."

Woodward and Newman

Gore Vidal added a 'gay subplot' to the film Ben-Hur.

Gore Vidal's nephew Hugh died of AIDS.


"Vidal's true love ... was Jimmie Trimble, a boy he had known at prep school who died fighting at the Battle of Iwo Jima."

Vidal and his partner Howard Austen stayed together fifty-two years, until Austen’s death in 2003. 

Vidal says the secret to their longevity was that they never had sex, not even at the beginning.

According to Tim Teeman, author of 'In Bed With Gore Vidal: Hustlers, Hollywood and the Private World of an American Master':

"Vidal and Austen (Vidal's partner) had sex with hustlers ... as Vidal called the handsome, 'straight-acting' young men he liked.

"Paying for sex appealed to Vidal because it meant with this, as with so much else in his life, he was in control...

"Vidal loved sex, and gossiping about it: he estimated he had had sex with a thousand men before he was 25.

"He told his nephew Burr Steers he had successfully pursued and had sex with Fred Astaire when he first moved to Hollywood.

"Steers says, 'He also told me Dennis Hopper had a lovely tuft of hair above his ass. He never told me how he knew that.'

Brad Davis

"Another close friend of Vidal's revealed Vidal had asked, when hearing the friend was staying at the legendarily louche Chateau Marmont, 'How is the Chateau?', before adding: 'Brad Davis (star of Midnight Express and Querelle) was a beautiful boy and I fucked him on the bathroom floor of the Chateau Marmont.'

"Davis, who was HIV-positive, died of a drug overdose in 1991...

"Vidal caroused with Tennessee Williams and Christopher Isherwood...

"He slept with Jack Kerouac...

"His much-cherished years in Rome in the 1960s were a merry sexual circus. He had sex with hustlers in the afternoons, he said, so he could concentrate on conversation with friends in the evening.

"One of Vidal’s oldest friends was Scotty Bowers, who had sex with, and procured sex for, celebrities including Cary Grant, Spencer Tracy, and Vidal himself."

How Gay Was Gore Vidal? - The Daily Beast

William F Buckley (left)

Vidal made enemies.

Gore Vidal said of William F. Buckley: "He's like Hitler without the charm."

Buckley called Vidal 'a queer' after Vidal had called Buckley a 'crypto-Nazi', during a 1968 television debate.

Gore Vidal upset his family when he gave his entire fortune and assets to Harvard University.

Italy, where Gore Vidal spent a lot of time.

According to Vidal's nephew Burr Steers, Vidal was terrified that Buckley may have had evidence that Vidal had sex with boys. 

"Jerry Sandusky acts," says Nina Straight, Vidal's half sister.

Burr Steers says: "Gore spent a lot of time in Bangkok, after all. 

"Gore also had a very weird take on the abuse perpetrated by Catholic priests. 

"He would say that the young guys involved were hustlers who were sending signals."

For Gore Vidal, a Final Plot Twist -

Gore Vidal had a villa at Ravello.

In the September 1969 edition of Esquire, Vidal wrote:

We are all bisexual to begin with. 

And we are all responsive to sexual stimuli from our own as well as from the opposite sex. 

Certain societies at certain times, usually in the interest of maintaining the baby supply, have discouraged homosexuality. 

Other societies, particularly militaristic ones, have exalted it. 

But regardless of tribal taboos, homosexuality is a constant fact of the human condition and it is not a sickness, not a sin, not a crime ... despite the best efforts of our puritan tribe to make it all three. 

Homosexuality is as natural as heterosexuality. Notice I use the word 'natural,' not normal.[41]

Gore Vidal and Michael York.

Vidal wrote in the 1970s:

"There is only one party in the United States, the Property Party ... 

"And it has two right wings: Republican and Democrat. 

"Republicans are a bit stupider, more rigid, more doctrinaire in their laissez-faire capitalism than the Democrats, who are cuter, prettier, a bit more corrupt...

"And more willing than the Republicans to make small adjustments when the poor, the black, the anti-imperialists get out of hand. But, essentially, there is no difference between the two parties." [61]

Princess Margaret, Gore Vidal, Jack Nicholson

At a 1999 lecture in Dublin, Vidal said:

"A characteristic of our present chaos is the dramatic migration of tribes.

"They are on the move from east to west, from south to north.

"Liberal tradition requires that borders must always be open to those in search of safety or even the pursuit of happiness.

"But now with so many millions of people on the move, even the great-hearted are becoming edgy.

"Norway is large enough and empty enough to take in 40 to 50 million homeless Bengalis.

"If the Norwegians say that, all in all, they would rather not take them in, is this to be considered racism? I think not. It is simply self-preservation, the first law of species."[64]

Hullo Aang,

I only read one Vidal novel, that being Kalki. I didn't think much of it at the time but with what I know now I view it as being far more interesting than anyone knew. It might just be the ultimate death cult book ever, albeit by way of being an indictment of the foolishness of the whole enterprise. I wonder what the people who were in on the in-joke made of it all?

And then there's Vidal himself. He clearly understood who ruled the world and what they were about and yet never really broached it. Not really. Might we declare him an enfant terrible, but not so terrible as to bite the hand?

There's a lot of it about.

best etc. etc.

Well, I read the post. It seems to be an indirect answer to my question and a response to my statements regarding a homosexual agenda, the diminishing of the taboo against homosexuality, and the changing of the definition of marriage from one man & one women.

Gore Vidal?


Gore Vidal had some interesting insights. Hey, I read people's opinions if the opinions are well informed and well written, regardless of whether they are homosexual or not.

But it can easily be said that Vidal's opinions on homosexuality are justifications of his own actions -- this is most common of any person, people work hard to rationalize their own actions, actually they can be quite creative in coming up with self-justifications.

Gore Vidal was a master at such justifications.

But I don't buy it.

Actually, there is evidence that homosexuals are often more creative than heterosexuals on average because they look to justify their own behavior and seek approval.

In my opinion, Vidal was a sexual libertine.

Look, I support your investigations into the pedophile rings in Britain and beyond.

These people need to be exposed for the harm they do to young people and society in general.

Are they hypocrites?


But it isn't because "everybody is a bisexual, some just don't know it yet."

Actually, they have been perverted in a multi-generational activity designed to make the leadership of Britain weak, subject to blackmail, and, thus, subject to manipulation & control.

Aangirfan, you seem to take the wrong lessons from this investigation. The elite use perversion as a means of control.

Weak, compromised individuals won't stand up to the schemes of the elite.

If these individuals will hurt children, the weakest, most vulnerable, and innocent among society, imagine what they can be made to do to everybody else.

These compromised individuals, thus, become willing tools of the elite.

The elite hurt people.

Do homosexuals hurt people?

Some do, most do not.

But there are tendencies in the human psyche (the sins of all humans) to hurt other people, especially if they, themselves, have been hurt already.

It's called desensitization.

Sex without love is often about domination more than mutual pleasure, although, mutual pleasure is a natural and understandable attraction between the sexes.

It's been around for all of human history.

Anyway, I appreciate the response. I don't agree with it, but that's okay.

As an aside, there must be better examples than Gore Vidal and his world of debauchery.

There will always be homosexuals, but that doesn't mean it should be promoted as normal, especially to children.

Keep it private and I don't care, but promote an intolerant agenda of smearing those who object to the promotion of homosexuality as normal and I will object.

Many homosexuals are not happy people. It's a response to abuse at an early age.

I actually have empathy for the people who have been abused and then turn around and abuse others.

But it needs to be stopped, this vicious cycle, not promoted as normal.

Enough said.

Is that nude dude Barack Obama in the picture aang?

Please in the future do a detailed analysis of why Jewish elites prefer using gays as pawns in their power structure. Is it because they are part of society, and yet due to their sexuality not part of society? Is it because gays can be highly secretive and conspiring given their sexuality? Is it because butch gays can be pathological and violent? Is it because gays can be blackmailed for those specific gays involved in BDSM and pedophilia?

Gore Vidal's importance was he bitched about the National Security State since it began.

In Central America Vidal saw a CIA coup for US corprate interests and he blew the whistle on it. This got him on the CIA's enemies list. That's what his fight with the CIA/Skull & Bones William F Buckley was all about.

His attempt to break the Neocon takeover caused him to write THE EMPIRE LOVERS STRIKE BACK, an article that got him branded as antisemitic and remains a hoot to read, decades later.

His "gayness" was an oddity he may have just used for publicity after he reached that Certain Age. It is a fact he was engaged to Joanne Woodward and lost a paternity suit, which would make the charge of "totally gay" difficult in his case.

The more likely explanation for Vidal's strangeness is more mundane. He had a rotten family life, went off to World War II far too young (he was 17), and probably got him as screwed up as lots of other guys in his generation.

But he was honest about it. And he DID TRY. The Tim Robbins movie in the nineties, BOB ROBERTS, casted Vidal as a senator who kept crabbing that "The United States is really being run by The National Security Agency."

In other words, Gore played himself and kept repeating the truth, year after year.

Some credit is due for that, I think.

Worth mentioning also that William F. Buckley, a member of Georgetown Set (which included the likes of Katherine Graham, the Dulles Brothers, the Bundy Brothers etc.) was lifelong CIA and MOCKINGBIRD, and by the early 1980s was boasting about it.

He was also a Knight of the Soverign Order of Malta, along with William Colby, Allan and John Foster Dulles, Richard Helms, James Jesus Angleton and others in the upper echelons of CIA.

One conflicting thought is, if the same elites that use perversions and abuses are the ones pushing for global acceptance of homosexuality , by proxy in some minds pedophilia, then that really works against their own power structure if it's true. A world leader can hardly be blackmailed for such acts in the future if the world becomes desentisized of these very acts to the level many claim is aimed for. Confused,
