Well I reread Hojo's chapters again. And to me I don't think he's gay.
We all know Gantz likes to give funny nick names, Hojo change the katakana "jo" to "mo" and you get the english word Homo.
The ugly guy in the store you were refering to, seemed more like a person you would stare at because they are being a weirdo and are attracting attention to themselves. Since the guy was wiping his face and making weird noises while doing so. And not because he was physically attracted to him.
Ignoring the girls he had no interest in them, one was ugly so she was out and the other was ok/normal looking. If you're that rich, popular, and good looking don't you think you would have high standards since you can have pretty much have any girl you want.
Then we have his friend saying he quit one modeling agency because the male boss was coming on to him and he was I'm not into that stuff I'm out of here.
Next is the budda mission we finally see Sadako's face and she's very pretty. And Hojo comments to her I want to see your pretty face again. At first he thought she was just some ugly stalker girl but she's actually beautiful.
And finally in the end he wanted to protect her, more as in someone he really cared about and not just a fellow team-mate. And before they die they kiss each other and it didn't seem like, oh I'm dying might as well kiss her or that she forced him, both wanted to do it. I don't think homosexuals switch to being straight just like that.
Naw, he's not gay.
Though it was funny as hell when everyone thought he was .
Sadako is a hermaphrodite (Referred to in the manga, maybe not though...I do know that the reference to the Ring girl is quite apparant, and she was supposed to be a hermaphrodite.)
See, now you made me want to research the Ring manga to confirm this.
Great, now Im gay for Bridget AND Sadako....

Don't feel bad about it. Bridgett is just too goddamn adorable. *drool*
By golly, RebelWithout was right.
Damn those Ring movies for toning down Sadako's creepiness.
i still think Briget's a girl or a transender and like a dude that got a sex change doesn't make you gay.
I didn't know Sadako was a hermaphrodite i have to reread those parts.
Gantz was just making fun of Hojo's name becuase the j and m are next to each other.
Hi there ; sorry to post without having introduced myself but I though I could help on present "Homo's matter".
In the Gantz manual, it's not indicated "O-re" na zuki, but definitely "Onna" (おんな in hiragana) wich means "women" :
So this "ability" shows how much Hojo is supposed to love girls = 0. That's one.
Then, in order to make things clear, Oku himself says that Hojo is gay ; the reason why he did refused his boss's "proposal" is apparently because he wasn't Hojo's "type".
Hojo's "type" his this guy, according Oku :
