Stars you didn’t know are gay or lesbian
Some stars come out as LGBT+ to big fanfare, but others may have been out for years or may have come out quietly.
PinkNews brings you a list of 43 iconic stars who, even if they personally avoid labels, are still LGBT role models.
Take a look through some of the celebrities that you might not know are lesbian, gay or bisexual.
1. Drew Barrymore
The Santa Clarita Diet star came out as bisexual in 2003. She has been married three times, to Jeremy Thomas, Tom Green and Will Kopelman.
She told Contact Music: “Do I like women sexually? Yeah, I do. Totally. I have always considered myself bisexual.”
2. Kate McKinnon
The Ghostbusters star was the first out lesbian member of the Saturday Night Live cast. She revealed that she realised she was a lesbian after watching Gillian Anderson as Scully on the X-Files.
“I figured it out by watching The X-Files and by noticing my physiological reaction to it,” she said.
“I thought at first my physiological reaction was a product of David Duchovny’s face but no, it was Gillian Anderson-who still is the queen of my heart. So I knew then.”
3. Aubrey Plaza
Parks and Recreation star Aubrey Plaza came out as bisexual back in 2016.
The actor who played April Ludgate in the hit TV show has said that she “falls in love with girls and guys”.
Her co-star Natalie Morales came out as queer in July 2017.
