Araki is married, but rumors of bisexual tendencies have circulated in Japan for over 20 years. On a more practical level, his characters often have a homoerotic appearance, especially after part 4, due to his passion for the fashion industry (with many characters having their physical appearances traced from runway models at shows Araki has attended). This is also why many characters in the series dress so flamboyantly: Araki borrows from the world of high fashion to create immediately distinctive looks for each character. The man was even given his own limited line by Gucchi.If enjoying part 2's designs and art makes me gay then I am ready to taste the rainbow. Is Araki gay or does he just really likes drawing jacked pretty dudes?
From an artistic standpoint many people draw what they know, so naturally a man would understand the male body better than he would a woman's. Look at Boris Vallejo for example, yes he paints some extremely sexy women but his men are made out of God and Damn.
