Nothing definitive there about Hoover being gay or a cross-dresser. More, I would say, to the contrary. FWIW

Hoover reportedly hunted down and threatened anyone who made insinuations about his sexuality.

Pornography for blackmail---Under Hoover, agents were directed to seize all pornographic materials uncovered in their investigations and forward them to Hoover personally.[114] He kept a large collection, possibly the world's largest,[115] of films, photographs, and written materials, with particular emphasis on nude photos of celebrities. Hoover reportedly used these for his own titillation, as well as holding them for blackmail purposes.[116][117]

In his biography Official and Confidential: The Secret Life of J. Edgar Hoover (1993), journalist Anthony Summers quoted "society divorcee" Susan Rosenstiel as claiming to have seen Hoover engaging in cross-dressing in the 1950s, at all-male parties.[118][119]

Summers alleged the Mafia had blackmail material on Hoover, which made Hoover reluctant to pursue organized crime aggressively. According to Summers, organized crime figures Meyer Lansky and Frank Costello obtained photos of Hoover's alleged homosexual activity with Tolson and used them to ensure that the FBI did not target their illegal activities.[120] Additionally, Summers claimed that Hoover was friends with Billy Byars, Jr., an alleged child pornographer and producer of the film The Genesis Children.[121]
Where there's smoke...FWIW :-\

The Truth about J. Edgar Hoover

Who the hell cares If Hoover was a homo??......    Which he was....    Hoover had far more serious character flaws than simple homosexuality.  Hoover was the devil incarnate ....  Personally I believe that he was more inhuman and corrupt than Adolph Hitler.

Homosexuality is a "character flaw"? You must have been tuned into Rush Limbaugh this morning. How Trump has cheapen the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

For once, I'm in agreement with Walter Cakebread.

Then again: What he said is indisputable.

Thanks.
And also thanks to Mark Lane.  Odd, that a private citizen saw the wisdom of filming interviews, while the governmental investigators did not. (Ok, maybe not so odd. Maybe by design.)
