[1] "But it's also true that Diller did not live as a monk before his marriage at the age of 59 -- in fact, while Diller is often referred to as bisexual, he has lived most of his adult life as a more or less openly gay man. He has had both short-term boyfriends and long-term relationships (including one with a former editor-in-chief of The Advocate); he appears frequently at gay parties and gay benefits. His sexual orientation has even been referred to in print with regularity." Maer Roshan, Inside Out, in New York magazine, 26-Feb-2001.
