Unfortunately the story was immediately considered as scandalous due to its references of homosexual desire. The story appears to be promoting the relationship between three men; Basil, Lord Henry and Dorian Gray, whom the two men admire and fascinate about. the immediate reaction of the readers of those times was rather negative due to superficiality of their judgements. Whether it was homosexuality or not both Oscar Wilde and Dorian Gray lived similar lives.
