Reminds me of an old joke (not mine I hasten to add):
What do you call a straight flight attendant?
In answer to your question, there are plenty of straight male flight attendants. More so on LCCs it seems, but maybe that's just my perception (we're talking less "visibly gay" people here, I'm not the sort of person that would ask!).

I don´t think so. Why should a male crew be gay? I don´t see this job as feminine. Probably some male F/A are gay, but its not a rule. Being a male crew doesn´t necesarry mean gay.
That´s just my opinion.

Obviously, we do not know for certain, even if we asked every flight attendant in the world if they were gay/straight/bisexual, some would not answer honestly. Do you want gay flight attendants to wear rainbow badges to demonstrate their sexual preferences, in the same way that they wear flag badges for the languages they speak? It is simply irrelevant if they are good at their job.
My theory is that today more people are willing to accept gay people in society, and there are probably as many gay flight attendants (if not more) as before but they are nowadays not as noticeable.

If a gay is a *closet* gay, he will also mention a girlfriend within 10 seconds of meeting him. I know a few who were like that when I first met them. Over denial you see. Things aren't quite that simple!

Of course it doesn't matter, but a question was asked, which we've attempted to answer. The question was not about whether it matters if a FA is gay! More women for the rest of us, assuming they're not gay as well, in which case can we please have the video.

slamclick is absolutely right when it comes to straight male flight attendants. Although I think it's actually more like the first 10 seconds, rather than 30. There is, of course, a reiteration of their sexuality within 30 seconds, for those that didn't catch it the first time. And if you still haven't caught on, there will be hourly reminders, and the obligatory ogling of all the "hot chicks" during the boarding process.

Lol. Spotters and controllers don't have wives or girlfriends, they're too nerdy for that! How's that for an unfounded stereotype!
I did go to BRS once just to see what is was like "spotting", well more "photting" really. Lots of men waiting around in parked cars - I made sure I didn't use my headlights/internal light in case they were doggers instead of spotters!
