Who is gay in WINNER and Why do people think so?

Gays are despised especially in conservative countries.
Many sees it as an immoral act and don’t want to be associated such persons.
This makes gays and lesbian isolated in the society.
Some even go to the extent of committing suicide because they are not able to fit in the society.

Though some are bold to confirm being gay, lesbian or bisexual, others keep it in the dark to prevent being victimized.
