Br Tom; Absolute proof that this almost naked man is gay? No, but it's a safe bet. As for the pope and the cardinals looking at this disgraceful performance, that in itself is far more disgraceful. I wouldn't let a child or young person observe this as it would be a sin. The pope and cardinals are shameful!

What evidence is there here that this acrobat or his viewers are 'gay'? Is it not wrong to attribute evil to another without evidence? I was never much of a fan of the circus and I don't think either his attire or the audience hall were appropriate. To me the Pope looks bored. As for the 'gay' remarks - are we not in danger of engaging in the same kind of thinking that plagues homosexuals and their allies, of reading homosexuality into almost anything and anyone, and thereby making it common and, they hope, more acceptable. After all the homosexualists read some of the Rennaissance artwork in the same way.

The Swiss Guard in the background appears to be holding back the urge to skewer the wonder boy in diapers with his spear!
