STEPHEN_FRY_COUPLES

Think Stephen Fry is ‘creepy’? Think again as we look back on the gay couples who definitely don’t mind the (age) gap

When Stephen Fry was about to get married to Elliott Spencer, people were upset he was marrying a man 30 years younger than him.

He was accused of ‘cradle snatching’ and being ‘creepy’ while his fiancé Elliott Spencer was labeled a ‘gold digger’ and ‘fake’.

But who’s to say what their relationship is like?

Other gay couples have proved that you can form a real, loving relationship that proves age is just a number.

Some have lasted, and some have not.

And some like the last couple Christopher Isherwood and Don Bachardy, who met when they were 48 and 18 in 1953, stayed together until the former’s death in 1986.

We have listed their age as was correct in January 2017. If one died, we have the listed the age in which they passed.
