It was strongly hinted. Because GRRM didn't say straight "Renly is gay!" in the book a lot of people over look it. You are not the first.

Renly is “gay in the books, too,” says George R.R. Martin, the author of the bestselling novels. But online chatter suggests that not every reader picked that fact up.

“I never meant to make it a mystery,” Martin says. “I like to handle things subtly. I couldn’t ever actually say, ‘such-and-such is gay,’ because, as I’m sure you know, the word wasn’t invented until the 60s. And I’m talking medieval times, and I’m not going to say, ‘so-and-so is gay.’ But I thought it was pretty clear in context.”
I loved Renly, I screamed during the last episode, I hope Loras doesn't die crying
OMG, literally, when I was watching episode five, I went, "I really like Renly." Two seconds later, Little Red Riding Ho's demon spawn gets him. WHY?!!!!!!! T__T

I felt so bad for Loras and Brienne. And Margaery.

I wouldn't feel bad, A LOT of people missed it. There were so many complaints when season 1 aired....then it was pointed out that yes they were indeed gay in the books. GRRM even made several comments at conventions and interviews because fans were so outraged, "How dare the show make them gay" and so on. Gay or not gay. The people loved him and I think that he could have made a good king.

Oh SNAP, he died! Didn't see that coming... when I was reading that part of the book. I think it didn't matter nobody wanted Stannis in the throne, he is the older brother. They should have joined forces and ended the Lannisters. At the end, most of the bannermen of Renly went to Stannis after all. It was the only posible outcome
I liked Renly.

Kind of a lame way to be killed off.
