33 years of relationship with a man he wanted to keep secret
Homosexual relationships were not necessarily well seen in the youth of Richard Chamberlain. This is how he then decided to keep everything about his love life secret. He absolutely did not want the public to know that he was gay.
In 1989, the magazine Nous deux revealed that the famous actor was gay. This information was only confirmed by the main interested party in 2003, in his autobiography entitled “Shattered Love: A Memoir”.
