I really like this picture... I honestly have no clue if he is gay, straight or bisexual... and to be honest: I don't really care; as he has the right to live his life in whatever fashion he chooses.
So why do I like this picture so much? Because he is different. Purely and simply because it's an interesting photo, and I seriously want to put stickers all over someone like that - (preferably while they are still asleep).
I also like this picture because he gives me great character inspiration in so many different ways. I could write him as and goth/emo or I could write him as a tough guy with a tender side. Maybe he's just some random guy doing a photo shoot. All I know is that he will make a great character in one of my stories... Now I just have to find the right character role to slot him into.
I have had this picture saved on my computer for years (well, at least two) and I will keep on saving him until I find the right character... UNLESS!!! someone out there has a name and a scenario he might fit into. If so drop me a comment and let me know what you think.
