I have been reading for a while and I'd like to say something regarding this "relationship" and "gay" or "not-gay" discussion.
I think the extraordinary relationship of S+R should also be a topic, as it is an inspiration to many fans.
Of course they are gay and there is nothing wrong with it!
And I am very sure that they see each other as life partners of some sort, whatever their actual relationship may contain or not contain.
I would like to share a quote from Siegfried with you.
He said that in an interview with the German magazine "Stern" back in December:
"Since the accident I found out what is most important in my life. Not the stage, not the applause. It's the feeling of holding Roy's hand in mine, his smile when he sees me."
This is one of the most beautiful things I have ever read.
