Sir Alan Arthur Bates, CBE was an English actor who came to prominence in the 1960s, a time of high creativity in British cinema, when he appeared in films ranging from the popular children's story Whistle down the Wind to the "kitchen sink" drama A Kind of Loving. John Curry was a British figure skater. He was the 1976 Olympic and World Champion. Prior to the 1976 World Championships, Curry was outed as gay by a German tabloid newspaper, Bild-Zeitung. It caused a brief scandal in Europe at the time, but the press and public generally ignored Curry’s sexual orientation for many years afterwards. In 1987, Curry was diagnosed with HIV, and in 1991 with AIDS. Before his death, he spoke openly to the press about both his disease and his sexual orientation. He died of an AIDS-related heart attack on April 15, 1994 in Binton; he was 44 years old. A 2007 biography of actor Alan Bates claimed that Curry and Bates had a two-year affair, and that Curry died in Bates' arms. Other than Curry, Bates had numerous homosexual relationships throughout his life, including those with actors Nickolas Grace and Peter Wyngarde.
Together from 1992 to 1994: 2 years.
