i am not sure if I can fully agree. Partially because it is a trailer and they may be trying to hint at it without drawing attention to it... Saving that for the movie for all the homophobes. 

 

However. The LGBT community keep trying to point out that being gay doesn't define who we are. Yeah him being gay and what was done to him was important. But clearly not the focus of the movie and (as much as I don't want to admit it) in the grand scheme of things, with everything he did, being gay isn't that big.
