15 Celebrities You Didn’t Know Were Gay/Lesbian

Gay Celebrities

Ian McKellen

“You Shall Not Pass!” Just imagine Ian McKellen yelling this at a pride parade, just before bursting into laughs.

The colorful attire is rather unusual for an actor we all associate with the somber role of Gandalf. Sir Ian McKellen hit the streets of Manchester in 2010 to show everyone that being different is not a shame.

Ellen Page

What happens when you make the bold step forward early in your career? For actress Ellen Page, coming out as gay in 2014 was a big relief, especially because it set fire to all the rumors.

Once she spoke the truth, the spotlight moved onto the next suspects.

Jim Parsons

43-year-old actor Jim Parson is in a relationship with art director Todd Spiewak that goes back 14 years.

A relationship described by the actor very naturally. “An act of love, coffee in the morning, going to work, washing the clothes, taking the dogs out— a regular life, boring love.”

Olivia Wilde

Asked during interviews, Olivia never denied the rumor of being bis3xual, making the hearts of all the other lesbians out there to beat faster.

Such a celeb joining their ranks would mean the world to them. The day Olivia Wilde comes forward to say she prefers women will be a sad day for men all over the world.

Mick Jagger

One of the most interesting rumors that go around the front pages is that Mick Jagger had a romantic involvement with another musician, one that recently passed away – David Bowie.

Bowie was openly bis3xual, and a constant presence alongside Mick. Did he influence more than his musical style?


The little girl you saw on “The Cosby Show” and later in her dedicated Disney Channel productions, has come out as being attracted to other girls.

Raven knew about her s3xual orientation by the age of 1, but waited until the age of 27 before formally declaring her tastes in partners.

Wentworth Miller

Learning that Wentworth Miller is gay was hard for many women. Although rumors were in the air surrounding Miller as early as 2007, the actor only came out when he was called to attend a Film Festival in Saint Petersburg.

We all know how Russian authorities treat their LGBT community and Miller was genuinely scared.

Portia de Rossi

Portia celebrated this year the eighth anniversary of her marriage with Ellen DeGeneres. Although Ellen registered as a lesbian in 1997, Portia chose to stay outside the radar for a little longer.

Queen Latifah

The actor and rapper Queen Latifah who is known for her anti-violence lyrics, and gay herself, showed her support for the LGBT community in January 2014 by officiating the wedding of 33 couples (including same-s3x ones).

Jillian Michaels

Jesse Tyler Ferguson is one of the few celebrities on the list you probably knew is gay.

The actor often recalls how he had to tell his family three times (at ages 17, 19, and 21) that he is not like the rest of the boys. You must imagine that the Ferguson’s were not a happy family, as Jesse’s sister is also gay.

Neil Patrick Harris
