Joel Schumacher was an American Film maker, he was born on August 29, 1939.
Schumacher was openly gay throughout most of his career. According to Schumacher, this fact was purposely reflected as a statement in many of his films.
Schumacher claimed that he had had sex with up to 20,000 men.
When asked by the BBC if he believed in God Schumacher said:
I’m sort of in that school of that quote from Hamlet. ‘There’s more in heaven and earth, Horatio.’ If you live long enough you will definitely get to understand that the universe is a profound mystery and I didn’t create it. We’re on this mud ball rolling around and I don’t know where we are, and nobody knows where we are. I definitely believe that I’m not the highest form of intelligence in the universe. But I don’t like to use the word God because it’s so overused in the United States—not so much in Europe—but it’s become politicized and has this ugly meaning now. Like asking someone if they believe in God has become an attack—like if you don’t believe in Jesus you’re not one of us! I loathe the use of God or any kind of spirituality as a form of discrimination or separation because that’s a total misuse of it.
He died on June 22, 2020 as a result of Cancer at the age of 80.
