J. Edgar Hoover was a gay man who lived his entire life with his mother.

He made his gay lover the Deputy Director of the FBI - though I don't know if they actually "did it," or were so repressed by the times that the single kiss was as far as it ever went.

J. Edgar was afraid of women mostly - except he had loved his secretary from afar, but perhaps she was a lesbian or afraid of being involved with a man?
