Queer Famous People

perple's picture

I personally love hearing about famous people that are lgbt. It brightened my whole day when I heard about James Dean. So, I know the basics of which famous peple are out/suspected of being queer (Sir Ian McKellan, Ellen Degeneres, Tom Cruise and, my personal bet, Ryan Seacrest). So, what more are there that I haven't heard of? Are there famous people that you think are gay? BTW: I heard from my Youth Group Leader's brother's friend knows Tom Cruise is actually gay, or at least dates dudes when he's away from his wife.

Judy Garland

Are you talking about the Judy Garland who starred in The Wizard of Oz? I've never heard anyone suspect her of being gay...

It would be awesome if she was, though. :D

cmk914's picture

yeah, that judy garland.

it's not, like, a confirmed fact. some people say she's just an icon in the gay community, and others say that she was bi, and others say lesbian. idk. but i choose to believe that yes, she was. :P

Huh?

Annie Lennox isn't gay, is she? As far as I know she was married to a man and has kids.

It would be cool is she was, but I don't think she is. Or at least, she hasn't come out.
