As quoted in a Daily Mail report, Mateen’s friend said, “He asked me whether I was gay and because I wasn’t out at the time I said no after which Omar said if you were gay you would definitely be my type.”
Mateen often frequented gay clubs and apps in order to pick up men. Grindr, Adam 4 Adam were some of the apps which the shooter often used. He used to share penis pictures on the apps and had also subscribed to few of the gay clubs’ pages. Besides, he was often seen in one of the most talked of gay clubs in Florida, Pulse hitting on men, buying them drinks. He had a particular style of striking conversation with men, said a drag queen who performed in the aforementioned club.
Though Mateen’s friends and other witnesses have confirmed his sexual orientation, his wife and father’s account are at loggerheads. According to his wife, he could have been gay as he liked visiting clubs. Further, his gesticulations and lifestyle bear testimony to his alleged sexual orientation.
His supporters in Syria probably wouldn’t go for that.
