Coming Out Day Gallery: Here are 150 out and proud celebrities who took that very public step!
Happy National Coming Out Day everyone!
So many well-known people have come out publicly in recent years that my annual gallery can’t possibly include all of them. I had to limit it to 150 which is, by far, the largest collection yet.
Whether it be a magazine cover story (Ellen DeGeneres, Lance Bass, Jason Collins, Clay Aiken), a dramatic TV interview (Meredith Baxter, Billy Bean), it’s still big news when a performer, athlete, news personality, or politician comes out.
An increasing number of folks are coming out on Twitter or casually in an interview.
However they choose to do it, it’s always an inspiring thing.
Some of the people are new additions since last year’s gallery including Jodie Foster, Matt Dallas, Tuc Watkins, Wentworth Miller, NBA player Jason Collins, TV legend Jim Nabors, soccer stars Abby Wambach and Robbie Rogers, WWE wrestler Darren Young, Victor Garber, actress Raven-Symone, and Nickelodeon star Lucas Cruikshank, among others.
The day is still young so if any other celebs come out today, I will add them!
