9. #Cynthia Nixon
Who would’ve guessed that the actress playing the iconic role of Miranda in the ultra-popular Sex and the City
could turn out to be bisexual? She spent her whole life only dating men until she met the love of her life, Christine Marinoni, in 2004 after her and her husband got a divorce. In fact, she said had never even kissed another woman until meeting Marinoni. They are happily married now, and Nixon says that there is nothing strange about a woman being in love with another woman.
10. #Zachary Quinto
You probably remember Zachary Quinto as the star of the TV series Heroes
or for his portrayal as Spock in the most recent Star Trek
movies. Quinto came out as being gay after the series finale of Heroes
back in 2011. He’s now also a big advocate for the LGBTQ community. He explained after the suicide of bisexual teen Jamey Rodemeyer, he realized “that living a gay life without publicly acknowledging it is simply not enough to make any significant contribution to the immense work that lies ahead on the road to complete equality.” He is now in a relationship with model and artist Miles McMillan.
11. #Laverne Cox
Some actors’ life stories are surprisingly similar to those of the characters they portray on the screen. That is the case with Orange is the New Black
star, Laverne Cox. Cox and her character Sophia Burset are both transgender women. In real life, Cox holds an honorary doctorate from The New School and is a well-known and praised activist trying to raise awareness and education about the issues facing trans people.
12. #Tim Cook
The logo behind him and the way he is dressed gives this guy away. Yes, he isn’t an actor, singer or movie director, but he is certainly just as influential as any of the other people on this list. He stepped in and took over for CEO of Apple after Steve Jobs’ death. Apple is still going strong and has sold over one billion devices worldwide, and Tim isn’t afraid to speak openly about his sexuality. In fact, when he came out in 2014, he said that it was one of the greatest gifts God has ever given him. Cook was the first openly gay CEO of a Fortune 500 company!
13. #Jillian Michaels
This hot personal trainer and businesswoman could be any man’s dream lady. Unfortunately for them, they have twice as many people to compete with, as Jillian has openly talked about how she isn’t gender-biased when it comes to picking her partner. She is now happily engaged to the beautiful Heidi Rhoades.
14. #Matt Bomer
Matt’s dad, a former Dallas Cowboys draft pick, always hoped his son would turn out to be like him. However, Matt, whom we all remember from his famous start in the early 2000s on the soap opera All My Children,
decided he was not very good at football — or women, for that matter. He has now been happily married to Simon Halls for over five years, and the couple shares three children.
In 2012, Raven-Symone announced on Twitter that she would like to keep her sexual orientation to herself. However, with the actual legalization of same-sex marriages in 2013 across the country, she once again turned to Twitter, but this time to express how happy she is that she can actually get married now if she wants to. Just two years after her confession, she introduced her now ex-girlfriend, AzMarie Livingston, to the public.
16. #Jim Parsons
This guy i’m sure you all recognize from his role in the hit TV show The Big Bang Theory
has been in a relationship with his partner, graphic designer Todd Spiewak, for a whopping 14 years now. If you’re wondering why you had no idea, it’s probably because the relationship wasn’t made public until 2012 — 10 years after it started. The two got married in May 2017 at the Rainbow Room in New York City.
17. #Kate McKinnon
Actress and comedian Kate McKinnon has gained a ton popularity for her roles portraying Hillary Clinton and Kellyanne Conway on the famous Saturday Night Live
. She is currently in a relationship with musical theatre actress Marla Mindelle. The couple briefly formed a two-person comedy band, Indigo Squirrels, when they started dating in 2013.
18. #John Travolta
John Travolta was in a hetero relationship with his wife Kelly Preston for 25 years, but in secret, John has had a private relationship with Doug Gotterba. For many years, Doug made many attempts to try and expose their relationship by publishing a book titled Travolta Exposed.
However, because of some legal issues, the book never made it to publishing. Travolta’s lawyers are actually still continuing to work to keep his reputation intact.
