This article poses the thesis that Nick is gay. Agree? Does it matter? http://www.salon.com/2013/01/09/was_nick_carraway_gay/

Pipi I don't think he was in love with Gatsby, or at least he was not aware of it. But it is really notorious that Nick cared very much about him and had a great admiration and empathy for Jay and all what surrounds him. In my opinion, it does not matter if he was gay or not but he is totally relevant to the plot, for he is the witness who brings every detail of the story to us, the readers. His presence and his appreciation of the facts is what makes Gatsby so interesting.
