5 celebrities who came out of the closet and changed forever

Times have certainly changed in Hollywood. What in the 1960s was secretly made, now it's celebrated. Celebrities like Ellen DeGeneres, Ricky Martin and Neil Patrick Harris are constantly in the public eye and some of them try to keep their life private. However, we're living in different time and fortunately many stars feel free to come out of the closet, leaving their fears back and talking openly about their intimacy and support to the LGBTQ community. 

  • Rapper Lil Nas X came out after his famous song "Old Town Road" came out. 
  • "Big Bang Theory" star Jim Parsons talked about it publicly in 2012 after a cover with the New York Times newspaper.
  • Actresses Drew Barrymore and Demi Lovato consider themselves "bi". 
  • Singer Tylor Swift said she was "queer" while being married to Australian actor Liam Hemsworth.
