Oh, celebrities. We love to judge and berate them, but we also can’t live without them. Celebrities seem to have always existed, and the public just loves to speculate over their personal trials and tribulations. And gay celebrities hold a special place in our hears.

Many gay celebrities lead wild, glamorous lifestyles the rest of us can only dream of, whether they’re parasailing through the South of France or brunching on the Lower East Side of Manhattan.

In today’s world of pop culture-hungry denizens, gay celebrities are constantly making headlines for saying and doing … well, anything. From their dating lives to commentary on contemporary culture, every inch of a gay celebrity’s life is fodder for the public’s fascination.

When it comes to being a gay celebrity, being “out of the closet” can send a positive message to other LGBTQ individuals around the world. It allows a celebrity to use their star power to stand up for equality and respect for our community.

Here you’ll find all of our gay celebrity coverage (and plenty about non-gay celebrities, too). Get scrolling to dive into the “who’s who” of our ever-expanding LGBTQ community.
