In the world of celebrities, if you’re famous and you also happen to be gay, then you had damn well better do a cover of People magazine or Out or something so all of us straight folk can know that you’re gay. I have no idea why this is a thing, because you never see straight celebs on the cover of People being like “It’s true! I’m straight!”, but such is the world of Hollywood.
However, not all gay, lesbian, and bisexual celebrities feel a need to constantly remind us of their sexual orientation (crazy idea: maybe they think it’s none of our fucking business and isn’t relevant to their careers. But that doesn’t mean Hollywood doesn’t have an amazing LGBTQ community! You might not have known that the following 9 celebs were gay, lesbian, or bisexual, but they are! And they’re awesome! And they prove that your sexuality doesn’t always dictate your roles and the career you have.
