Is Henry Winkler Gay?

In recent news, there are speculations about Winkler finally coming out of the closet as a gay man. It came as a surprise to many that the celebrated actor might be homosexual, since there has never been any indication of him being gay. Since it is 2016, there would be no reason for Winkler to keep his sexual orientation hidden from his fans, since so many celebrities come out on a regular basis. The allegations that Winkler is gay, are unproven and completely unfounded. In an interview a few years ago, actor William Shatner jokingly stated that he and Henry Winkler “have a complicated gay relationship.”
