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.

You might be surprised who is on this list as their stories have not always had strong media attention.

Some are Hollywood stars, others have regularly topped the charts, while others lead some of the world’s largest businesess.

What unites them all is that they are proud to be members of the LGBT community and we think that they are great role models.

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.”
