Celebrities Who Announced They’re Gay


Ellen Page

In 2007, Ellen Page had a breakout role in the sleeper film Juno, starring as a high school student that was going through an unplanned pregnancy. The role earned her nominations for a Golden Globe and an Oscar. While she went on to star in the blockbuster films Inception and X-Men: The Last Stand, Page stole the show this past Valentine’s Day at the Human Rights Campaign’s “Time To Thrive” conference by announcing she’s gay. During the emotional speech, Page said she hoped her coming out would make a difference with others struggling to do the same thing.

    I don’t care what kind of person they are, neither. I just distance myself from all of the weirdos in the world nowadays. I’m straight. Does anyone care?

  • PeaceCorps1

    I just wish that the transsexuals realize that they are STILL MEN no matter how many surgeries they get!

  • Jonh Hunter

    Gods not real. At all.

  • Devin

    Agreed and Thank you. Someone not afraid to offer a dissenting opinion in the wake of an over-liberalized and morally bereft society.

    Why does one have to announce that he/she’s gay?

  • Rachel Draper

    To Jodie Foster’s comment: AMEN, GIRL!

    Ok. Some were a surprise some were not. I’m still not convinced NPH is gay.

  • dingo_egret

    EXTRA, EXTRA…many on this list are not a surprise.

    Let’s stop with the announcements please. No one cares.

    I like cheeseburgers…No one cares.

  • Zina

    Not one of these people surprised me when they came out.

  • NVAdamzz

    I don’t really understand why it is that coming out has to be such a production. And I’m not saying this to be cruel I’m literally just confused. When I’m dating someone, I get to know them, if I decide they’re worthy I’ll bring them to meet my family and we start dating. Why can’t gay people be the same? Can’t they just show up with whoever they’re with and people deduce the fact that they’re gay instead of them feeling the need to make some huge announcement about it first?

    • kiki j

      Sounds good in theory

    • you’sajoke

      But we’re just regular people. I think every celebrity does it. When the most popular celebrity starts dating someone new its all over the news. They don’t have to announce anything because its assumed they’re straight. Regular folks don’t necessarily keep it between them and their family because they post pictures on Facebook, Twitter, and instsgram. Its not a huge announcement, but its an announcement nonetheless.

    • Si Fa

      Yes! I totally agree. Also can’t gay men just be proud GAY MEN? What’s with all this “she” and “her” and “girl?” Gay Men ARE NOT women!! They are just gay men #nothingwrongwitdat

  • Dee

    Is it just me or does Frenchie Davis look like Nya Lee from Love & Hip Hop NY?

    • kiki j

      That was the only reason I clicked on this article lol

  • Nia

    I’m straight. Does anyone care? I don’t care what anyone’s orientation is. I’m more concerned with what kind of person they are.

    • uhh

      I don’t care what kind of person they are, neither. I just distance myself from all of the weirdos in the world nowadays.

      • Devin

        Works for me

  • vintagebrat

    Who cares

    • fujoshifanatic

      I do, as a queer woman of color. And kudos to them for being–and celebrating–who they are. Maybe black folk could learn more from that type of bravery.

      • guest

        Exactly! But they won’t they only see homosexuality as a sin, while they’re doin the most sinning.

        • c.dot

          Who is doing the most sinning? Black people ? Please come off it Blacks don’t do the most sinning! People who live in sin do the most sinning (people of all colors). You sound very ignorant, how about do some deep thinking before you post something next time!

        • mainstreamisoverrated

          I didn’t see the poster say anything geared towards homosexuality being bad. A simple “Who cares” was posted,but somehow You and
          Your likes had to let non homosexuals know that we do the most sinning?

          We do? You assume we do,but the industry is deep with gays AND we know how they all “make it”. Doing who knows what and selling out like Madison square during the velvet rope era. Preachers talk a lot of junk but are sweeter than Elton John’s bank account. Stop being so dang quick to check the straights.

        • PeaceCorps1

          On no. Why would you say that? Putting people in chains for over 500 years, stealing land, colonizing, institutional racism, etc. Have you forgotten?

      • empress123

        Black people are brave in their own right! This straight black woman has always celebrated who she is WITHOUT putting anyone else down.
