50 celebs you didn’t know were gay 8

There was a time when the LGBTQ+ community was heavily discriminated against in the world of entertainment. It was difficult for actors and actresses to find any TV series or movies that openly focused on openly gay characters or were willing to hire them. This stigma had a negative impact on celebrities who were actually part of the LGBQT+ community.

Fortunately, here we are in 2020, and the entertainment industry has gradually become more and more inclusive of the LGBTQ+ community, enabling them to be more widely understood, accepted, and even celebrated. To commemorate this monumental progression, we have listed 30 beautiful celebrities who have bravely come out as being a part of the LGBTQ+ community.
