Q: Have you ever had a gay relationship?
Leonard Cohen: No
Q: Do you regret that?
Leonard Cohen: No, because I have had intimate relationships with men all my life and I still do have. I’ve seen men as beautiful, I’ve felt sexual stirrings towards men so I don’t think I’ve missed out. Maybe I have, maybe it’s time to look into it. Maybe not, maybe I’ve left it too late. Maybe I’ll not be able to get anybody.
