Heh, heh. . . I've published well over 1,500 posts since this blog began, and I've probably not focused on anything to do with "the gay" more than 1% of the time. But occasionally a story or link catches my fancy, and I feel the desire to share it.
My headline above is an allusion to those splashy Star Magazine or National Enquirer headlines (do they still do that?). The link below is a fairly extensive list of openly gay celebrities. No innuendo, no "is he, or isn't she?" So no salacious gossip to be had here. But it is interesting to see, just the same. Most of the individuals in the feature have only come out since the 1990s, with rare exceptions. And though it seems like an extensive list (there's even a sequel post on the page of 65 more), there are few surprises for a pop culture vulture like me.
But check it out. It's a list chock-full of amazingly talented, and amazing people.
Actor David Hyde Pierce, pictured here as police Lt. Frank Cioffi in the 2007 Broadway hit "Curtains," came out on national television. After winning a Tony Award, Pierce thanked his long-time parner. (Photo by Bryan Bedder/Getty Images) Look at the following photos to see celebrities who live openly gay lives.
