When he was being spoken to by AU Rodney, AU Rodney mentioned that the field medic that AU Sheppard went back to help in Afghanistan, that AU Sheppard knew him personally and that they were 'involved'. One of Atlantis's producers mentioned that they tried to put a gay character in an earlier episode but it was cut. They also mentioned that there was a gay charcter coming up in a future episode but they didn't tell us who he was. Is AU Sheppard meant to be that other gay character?

Rodney said the medic was a 'she'.
You can look at so many details in the episode and come up with scenarios. The way that Rodney spoke about the other Shep and how things 'played out' differently between them, the bickering between Rodney and Radek, Shep not noticing the ultra-hot nurse who walked right past him... If you pick anything apart, you'll eventually find what you're looking for.

I kind of got the impression that the Wraith on Earth in Vegas was kind of gay. After all, only a gay emo Wraith would stoop so low to listen to the music of Marilyn Manson. Besides, his knowledge of cosmetics only aided the illusion. :P

Now that's a stereotype! Maybe all Wraith would love Marilyn is they got a chance to hear him. :D

Rodney mentioned the medic's sex. I heard it and the transcript confirms it, in the scene where Shep is leaving SGC: Las Vegas.

Yes, the Rodney says "field medic," but never does he say "he" or "she." You can let it be what you want it to be.

When they are talking outside the facility Rodney clearly says in regards to the field medic "You knew her personally." So Det Shep wasn't gay not in this particular universe anyway...

It's amazing how many people around here seem to be getting very uptight that AU John might be gay. Almost as if that would be a bad thing

For the record I'm not uptight about it, I went back a listened a couple of times because when I saw people talking about it I thought I'd missed something, turns out I didn't *shrugs* I think it would have been an interesting move to make but it didn't happen so its kind of a of moot point.

If anything, it might point to our realities's Sheppard being gay. If the parallel holds true, and I'm not saying it does, he went back against orders to rescue someone he was involved with. It the AU reality it was a woman, in this one, a man. Who knows? It is interesting either way.

considering Rodney said "her" in regards to the field medic, I'd think that would rule out AU SHep being gay...

and Mallozzi mentioned that whatserface (um, um, a redshirt) was going to ask Keller out for drinks at the end of "Whispers," but it was cut for time. And even then, saying 'let's go out for drinks is not 100% "let's date!" ;)

Wouldn't it be though? Because it says that being gay is a choice. Isn't that what all AU universes are, a choice that went differently? Just my interpretation.

I read AU fic and all kinds of things can be different. There are even ones where our characters are different genders. If there are infinite numbers of possible universes then there are infinite numbers of genetic combinations, so choice or biology, anything could happen in an AU.

Interesting topic I say.

But I made a brief post at the episode discussion regarding this matter, but I concur with Billz. If only AU Sheppard was gay.

Clicking on the link, speaking of gay characters, was that why after Season 4 ended and Lt. Vegas character was announced with possibility of her appearing as important as part of the main cast, as she was suppose to be the first gay character? Well, IMO, lost potential.

I thought Teyla was being referred to. I heard 'she' so I assumed it was her.

Unless Teyla came to Earth years ago and became a US Army medic... Nope. ;)

LMAO! That's the funniest thing I've heard all day. Wraith uh, heh, they are like insects - not mammals.

What gay or straight, I'm one of those that likes NO ROMANCE in sci fi, hard core sci fi. Trekkies also had a royal fit when other writers tried to stuff that in.

I thought Goth Wraith was HOT - and it's the first time we got to see a half naked Wraith - did you see the vertebrate showing on his spine? And the markings? PHEW! I'm surprised no one has posted a picture of the back of him, high resolution.

1) Being gay is not a choice.
2) No, it would say that this would've just been a choice. For one thing, John could very well be bisexual (could). For another, it might not a "choice" John made. Maybe his mom made a different choice, which lead to him being born gay instead of straight in that particular AU. Chaos theory.
