These are the celebrity LGBT couples that totally captured our hearts!
Tom Ford and Richard Buckley
It was New Year’s Eve in 1986 when Tom Ford and Richard Buckley attended a common friend’s fashion show and met for the first time. They saw each other on the elevator and at that moment they knew that there was something special going on between them. Tom admitted that it was a case of love at first sight, which was later confessed by Richard. He just couldn’t take his eyes off of him, it’s as if he was looking into his future.
When they celebrated their three decades of being together, people started asking what the secret to their long-lasting relationship is, especially since they now also share a four-year-old child, Alexander John Buckley Ford. According to Tom, the most important thing for a relationship to work, aside from love, is the degree of respect both sides give to each other. Even during the trying, they managed to stick together because they believe in each other’s great heart and soul.
Lance Bass and Michael Turchin
Their love story would never have been written had Lance not make the first move. Starting out as friends, Lance Bass and Michael Turchin met at a friend’s birthday celebration in Palm Springs, California. Although Michael felt that they could become more than just friends, he was intimidated by the fact that Lance was a well-known celebrity. The feeling was mutual with Lance — he was instantly attracted but chose to keep these feelings private.
Shortly, as time passed, they became really close friends, but Lance couldn’t resist anymore and went for a kiss. The two went from friends to lovers with a great foundation. But due to Lance’s schedule, he had to move back to New York City and have a long-distance relationship. Aside from Michael’s sense of humor, Lance loves how he can handle his busy lifestyle. And the same goes for Lance, who became a huge part of Michael’s career success and investments.
Sir Elton John and David Furnish
Elton hosted a dinner party at his house in Windsor and David was one of the people who came. He was well-dressed and a bit shy but captured Elton’s attention. The two went for another dinner the night after and officially became a couple. In their 12th year, Elton asked David to marry him, which led to their 27-year relationship. When they were asked about marriage, Elton shared how their love had grown better and stronger.
A great addition to their happiness is their two adorable children, Zachary Jackson Levon and Elijah Joseph Daniel. The couple makes sure to spend a lot of quality time with them, teaching them the reality of life. As a matter of fact, they admit that they urge their kids to earn money through hard work in order to have a high credit score in the future. At the end of the day, they are more than happy to be in each other’s arms, drinking coffee, watching television, and playing with their kids just like normal couples do.
Tom Daley and Dustin Lance Black
At an after-party in 2013, Tom Daley came to the place a little late and saw Dustin Lance Black. He admitted that he didn’t have a clue who Dustin was but couldn’t stop looking at the Academy Award winner director, producer, and screenwriter. Of course, Dustin was aware that something was up, but was in denial, thinking it was too good to be true. Everyone was planning to celebrate Tom’s victory at the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards, but Dustin refused to come. However, Tom, to his credit, made the first move, asked for Dustin’s phone number, and typed it in.
One thing led to another and the two eventually got engaged, announcing it at an Instagram post on October 2, 2015. Two years after, Tom and Dustin tied the knot at Bovey Castle in Devon. Tom shared the most special weekend of their lives with over 100 guests, from Texarkana to Plymouth. The couple now has a child through surrogacy, Robbie Ray.
Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi
One of the hardest things about being a part of the LGBT community, especially if you’re a celebrity, is coming out in public. Portia de Rossi already built a career in the TV and film industry before admitting she’s gay. In an interview, Portia shared how she struggled with her sexuality. She was hesitant to come out at first because she didn’t want to limit her roles as an actress. She thought this would end her career and lead her into bankruptcy.
However, her perspective on life changed when she met Ellen DeGeneres. It started with a simple hello. It would eventually take a couple of months for Portia to confess her feelings to Ellen. In her memoir, Unbearable Lightness: A Story of Loss and Gain, she wrote about how Ellen taught her acceptance, courage, and wisdom. Now, the two are happily married and enjoying their lives together. Even without kids, they feel content with each other’s company.
Samira Wiley and Lauren Morelli
Netflix’s drama series, Orange Is The New Black, became the way for the actress, Samira Wiley, and dialogist, Lauren Morelli, to meet. But before they came face to face on the New York soundstage, Samira already fell for Lauren’s mind through her script. On the other hand, Lauren developed a crush on Samira after watching her audition tape. Eventually, the two developed a friendship that somehow led to a serious relationship.
Lauren decided to leave her husband and let her lawyer take care of it. She began dating Samira, moved in with her, and started fresh. They went on several trips to get to know each other more but it was in Palm Springs that Lauren would pop the question. Samira said yes and five months later, the couple became officially married. The brides both wore a wedding dress designed by Christian Siriano for the intimate ceremony.
Ricky Martin and Jwan Yosef
It was already shocking for everyone when Ricky Martin came out as gay, but he once again made headlines when he confirmed his marriage to Jwan Yosef. The two dated for a couple of months until Ricky asked Jwan to tie the knot with him. According to the singer, he was pretty sure that Jwan was the one. Although the relationship took quite some time to develop, he believed that it was love at first sight.
Prior to their serious relationship, they shared that they often talk casually over the phone about life experiences — it was nothing romantic. Six months passed and their friendship grew into something special. Now, Ricky and Jwan are co-parenting twins Valentino and Matteo in their humble home that has a home security system for protection. They have also been active on social media posting about how happy they are. Their intention, of course, is to inspire other gay couples to live openly.
RuPaul and Georges LeBar
Many know RuPaul for his famous and Emmy Award-winning competition show, RuPaul’s Drag Race. He was always open about himself but chose to keep his love life private. The drag queen has been in a relationship with George LeBar for more than 20 years and counting. RuPaul revealed in an interview that they met at a dance club in New York City. LeBar is a rancher from Wyoming and 13 years younger than him. But that didn’t stop the couple from falling in love and eventually getting married (in 2017).
Although at first, RuPaul said he was not into the whole wedding ceremony thing because he didn’t felt the need to conform to anything. However, after realizing what’s currently happening in the world, the two decided to make it legal. It was, in some sense, done for investment planning purposes. Now, RuPaul and LeBar are living happily and blissfully.
Cheyenne Jackson and Jason Landau
Meeting in a rehab for alcohol addiction was not the ideal moment for Cheyenne Jackson and Jason Landau. But despite the unlikely situation, the couple made it against all odds and got sober together. Soon enough, they announced their engagement, followed by an inclusive wedding ceremony in Encino, Calif. It was attended by family and close friends, including Jane Lynch, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, and Alicia Silverstone.
It was a new beginning for the two, since Cheyenne came from a failed marriage, although he shared that they had spent wonderful years together. He said that his former love, Lapka, was a great man and that he felt sad that their relationship ended. Fortunately, he had a good attorney who took care of everything. However, Cheyenne and Jason are more than grateful for having found eachother, and they welcomed their twins, Willow and Ethan, in 2016. They were overwhelmed with the blessings and couldn’t wait to fulfill their duties as parents to their adorable children.
Gary Janetti and Brad Goreski
Celebrity stylist and fashion host, Brad Goreski, has been dating Gary Janetti for years. Brad has worked with numerous celebrities, including Lea Michele, Kaley Cuoco, and Jenna Dewan, which made his credit card processing much easier. He also appeared on the Bravo reality TV series It’s A Brad, Brad World, which strengthen his relationship with his boyfriend, Gary. According to Brad, Gary is a funny guy who is easy to get along with. There are lots of things about Gary that really drives him crazy.
The two met in Athens, Greece, and have been inseparable ever since. In 2014, Brad and Gary formally got engaged. They decided to have a sun-soaked wedding, celebrating with family and friends in the Caribbean. Brad and Gary exchanged their vows wearing Isaia suits aboard the luxury cruise ship, Seabourn Sojourn. For sure, both are full of excitement and happiness, and they’re ready to face this new chapter in their lives.
Kendrell Bowman and Anthony Wayne
There are lots of inspirational couples out there, especially in Hollywood. They are couples who have stories that grow from nothing out of the ordinary into something special, that’s what Kendrell Bowman and Anthony Wayne’s relationship blossoms into. One of them came from South Carolina while the other one is a Kentucky native. So how did they stumble upon each other? They met in New York City and found they have good chemistry between them from the get-go.
Since the two had a lot of experience in acting and directing stage performances, their relationship not only became personal but professional as well. They worked in a couple of Off-Broadway productions. The two worked as a team and the harmony between them was second to none. With their smart money management, the couple is set for greatness, and people should look out for what they will be offering in the coming years.
Amber Heard and Tasya van Ree
A photographer and an actress would make a great team in Hollywood. After all, the chemistry between them would be a lot smoother. That’s exactly the thing that happened between the artist and photographer Tasya van Ree, and the top-notch actress Amber Heard. The two seemed to have a perfect relationship on the surface but it looked like there were more to their story.
Reports suggest there have been altercations between the two and these events became Hollywood’s top stories during the time. The two overcame various roadblocks but eventually went their separate ways in 2012. Good thing, the rift between the two didn’t result in any actions that would need the intervention of their respective lawyers. Fast forward a couple of years, Heard got into a relationship with the tech entrepreneur, Elon Musk, while van Ree got into a relationship with the model Caroline Vreeland.
Sara Gilbert and Linda Perry
Sara Gilbert is a renowned personality in Hollywood both on and off-screen. She’s a top-notch actress who occasionally works as a director and producer. On the other hand, Linda Perry is a bonafide superstar in her own league. She’s a well-respected singer and record producer that provided numerous hits in the past couple of years. In fact, she’s been inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame class of 2015. With the two of them working side-by-side, it seems like nothing can stop them.
They began their in-depth relationship in 2011 and announced to their supporters their intention of tying the knot in early 2013. They finally exchanged vows a year later and everything seemed to be going in the right direction for the two. Along with their team of lawyers, the two filed for a legal separation. Even though their relationship ended on a bitter note, the two settled their differences.
Miles Brock and Milan Christopher
The music landscape is filled with all kinds of people who express their personalities in a not-so-ordinary manner. With that in mind, just take a look at rapper and actor, Miles Brock and Milan Christopher. The two went on a relationship with each other, and they set a serious milestone in the rap scene as the first openly homosexual couples in an industry full of macho figures. As a nod to this, they released a couple of hit singles, including When I Go, which is a direct protest against bullying, especially against various LGBTQ youths.
Even though the two are now going their separate ways, they remain relevant figures in various LGBTQ communities. Not to mention, the inspiration that they brought to the table. However, the investment they made in improving the lives of members of the LGBTQ community clearly bore fruit. A top-notch act that paved the way for future couples that are still afraid to open up about their relationship to the public.
Chely Wright and Lauren Blitzer
LGBTQ community won’t have the degree of acceptance that they do right now were it not for the support of a number of individuals who’ve advocated for them in public. One of the prime figures of the movement is Lauren Blitzer. For those who don’t know, she’s the other half of the famous country music star, Chely Wright. With that said, the couple announced their engagement during the first part of 2011. They exchanged vows a couple of months later. Good thing, the state of Connecticut allows civil union between people of the same gender.
As the cherry on the top, the couple announced that Chely was expecting not one, but two babies. Yes, we are talking about twins here, and who wouldn’t be delighted with that news? Of course, their future is already secure since both of their parents will be dedicated to them without end.
Kate McKinnon And Jackie Abbott
In recent years, Kate McKinnon has begun making quite a name for herself in the comedy scene. Besides developing a knack for accents since her grade school days, Kate’s other investment is in her musical talents – she learned how to play the guitar, piano, and the cello during her teenage years. Today, she is well known for her performance in Saturday Night Live, Office Christmas Party, The Spy Who Dumped Me, and The Big Gay Sketch Show.
Despite her celebrity status, Kate prefers to keep her personal life away from the spotlight as much as possible. In fact, she doesn’t even have any social media accounts. One thing fans of the actress know is that she is happily in love and in a relationship with fellow actress and photographer Jackie Abbott. So far, she only has a few short films in her resume since she just started her acting career in 2016.
Melissa Etheridge And Linda Wallem
Her first album received a Grammy nomination for its hit single Bring Me Some Water. By the third album, Never Enough, the nomination became a win, thanks to its single Ain’t It Heavy. Melissa Etheridge is often known in the music industry for her raspy vocals and ability to blend expressive lyrics with pop-based folk-rock melodies. Although she doesn’t have any acting credits at the moment, the singer won something else from the movie and TV industry.
Besides winning an Academy Award for Best Original Song for her record I Need to Wake Up, which was used in the 2006 film An Inconvenient Truth, Melissa also met Linda Wallem. The two first met when Linda was looking for actors for her at-the-time upcoming show That ’80s Show. The TV show producer then invited Melissa to try acting on the program. Despite not landing the part, the two immediately became best friends, and today, live happily as a married couple.
Nico Tortorella And Bethany C. Meyers
They started their career as models before landing a spot in the business. Today, Nico Tortorella is often known for his role in projects like Scream 4, The Following, The Walking Dead: Dead Beyond, and the ongoing series Younger. By 2016, Tortorella admitted to being bisexual and said that he prefers to be addressed with the pronouns they, them, and their. With that said, they have since been in a relationship that could arguably be considered a new degree of unconventional.
Tortorella’s wife, Bethany Meyers, is a fitness instructor and lifestyle entrepreneur that has since come out as gay. The couple got married in 2018 in a civil ceremony, and soon after, at a church. Despite the unusual state of their relationship, the two still managed to stick together through the tough times and live happily. Although they are yet to have kids, both Tortorella and Meyers consider the idea of raising a family a big possibility for them.
Luke Evans And Victor Turpin
Like many actors in the entertainment industry, Luke Evans began his career on stage, performing for productions like Miss Saigon, Piaf, and Rent. Soon after, he found fame for his breakthrough role in the 2010 remake of Clash of the Titans. Since then, he has taken credit for acting in other high-profile projects like the Fast & Furious movies, The Hobbit trilogy, Dracula Untold, The Alienist, and Disney’s live-action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast.
Although he has openly admitted to being gay back in an interview he had during his early 20s, Luke Evans has since chosen to keep his personal life away from the public’s radar. Even so, the actor was last reportedly known to be in a relationship with fellow actor and singer-songwriter Victor Turpin, who’s well-known for starring in titles like Murder Mystery, Ma, Greenlight, See Dad Run, and Shades of Blue.
Ryan Murphy And David Miller
In the entertainment business, Ryan Murphy is often considered the most powerful man in the industry, thanks to his knack for seamlessly incorporating modern subjects into his stories. He is a TV producer, writer, and all-around filmmaker, well-known for his contribution and investments in projects like Glee, American Horror Story, 9-1-1, The Politician, and Ratched. So far, Murphy has had the honor of winning six Primetime Emmys out of 32 nominations, a Tony Award, and a Grammy nomination.
Murphy’s husband, David Miller, is a photographer. Just like Murphy, Miller also has quite a knack for making things visually pleasing. In fact, most of the couple’s homes are often designed by the photographer, making their humble abodes also beautiful works of art. Unlike Murphy, however, Miller prefers to keep away from the spotlight, saying that he is more than happy to see his partner bask in the fame.
Alan Cumming And Grant Shaffer
Most of the time, actors prefer to stick with performing a particular character, like the all-around hero, the genius, or comic relief. Well, for Alan Cumming, he’s done just about everything. Besides finding fame as a stage actor, Alan is also well-known for the various roles he’s had in his film career, with a few notable mentions being GoldenEye’s Boris Grishenko, Spy Kids’ Fegan Floop, X2’s Nightcrawler, and Son of the Mask’s Loki.
Outside his career, Alan also achieved another milestone in his life when he and Grant Shaffer got married – not just once, but twice! After the two tied the knot in London in 2007, they decided to tie it even tighter five years later – this time, in New York. Grant Shaffer, just like Alan, works in the entertainment industry, but mostly behind the camera. Through the years, he has taken credit for providing storyboards to projects like Zoolander, Closer, and Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps.
Lily Tomlin And Jane Wagner
While studying to get her college degree, Lily Tomlin realized her passion for performing and acting. Her earlier work in the business often consisted of stand-up comedy gigs and stage performances. Soon after, Lily gained widespread recognition for her role in Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In. Thanks to her appearance on the show, she later got to work in other noteworthy projects like Nashville, All of Me, 9 to 5, I Heart Huckabees, and, most recently, Grace and Frankie.
Along the way, the actress-comedian found her better half, Jane Wagner. Throughout their careers, the couple has collaborated on more than a few projects, with Jane as the writer and Lily as the performer. One such title that arguably contains Jane’s most iconic performance to date is the Broadway production, The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe, which also earned her a Tony Award for Best Lead Actress in a Play.
Zachary Quinto And Miles McMillan
It’s safe to say that many sci-fi fans probably recognize actor Zachary Quinto for his role in the newer Star Trek movies as Spock. Other notable works he’s had an acting credit for include American Horror Story: Asylum, NOS4A2, Heroes, Snowden, and Hotel Artemis. In 2011, in light of the events at the time, the actor came out as gay, stating that keeping one’s orientation from the public can never help society progress into being a more accepting community.
In 2013, Quinto began a relationship with Miles McMillan, who’s a model and a talented painter. The two were often spotted attending red-carpet events together. Outside the spotlight, they also lived in the same apartment, where McMillan created a few of his notable art pieces. Unfortunately, by 2019, the two ended their relationship. Happily, they are reportedly still on good terms.
Jodie Foster And Alexandra Hedison
After starting as a child model at the age of three, Jodie Foster landed an acting gig for titles like Mayberry RFD and Napoleon and Samantha. After finishing her studies at Yale with a Doctor of Fine Arts degree in 1997, Foster continued with her acting career and later received widespread recognition for her role in The Accused and in The Silence of the Lambs.
After a year of dating, Foster married fellow actress and photographer Alexandra Hedison. Over the years, Hedison was able to receive the honor of presenting her work in a bunch of high-profile exhibits, including 2016’s Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere, which eventually became one of the top ten exhibitions in its area that year. Outside their careers, the couple prefers to live their personal lives away from the spotlight. This sentiment is especially apparent in Foster’s case, who’s spent most of her earlier years as a child actress under the public’s watchful eye.
George Takei And Brad Altman
Another iconic figure in sci-fi fandom is none other than George Takei, well-known for his role as Hikaru Sulu in the original Star Trek series and movies. Other projects he worked on alongside the sci-fi space epic include Hell to Eternity, A Majority of One, Red Line, as well as voice acting work for the English-dubbed version of Japan’s Rodan and Godzilla Raids Again.
Despite George and his now-husband Brad Altman’s relationship coming to fruition in 1985, the two only revealed it to the public in 2005. By 2008, they decided to make it official. With that said, the two spent a significant amount of investment money on their wedding, which had fellow Star Trek stars Walter Koenig and Nichelle Nichols as best man and best woman. As of 2021, George and Brad have been inseparable for more than three decades already.
Sarah Paulson And Holland Taylor
The entertainment industry is, to a huge degree, never short of big-named figures. One such celebrity that’s slowly taking the industry by storm is Sarah Paulson. Her earlier years under the spotlight got her starring in films like What Women Want, Down With Love, and The Notorious Bettie Page. She eventually became more well-known for her performance in titles like 12 Years a Slave, Game Change, Bird Box, Glass, and Ocean’s 8. For her performance as the prosecuting lawyer Marcia Clark in American Crime Story, Paulson won a Primetime Emmy and a Golden Globe Award, among other accolades.
Meanwhile, her partner, Holland Taylor, is just as famous in the business, having starred in hits like The Truman Show, George of the Jungle, Legally Blonde, and Two and a Half Men. Ever since the two began their relationship in 2015, Paulson and Taylor have been enjoying every second they spend together and have been very vocal about their feelings for each other.
Neil Patrick Harris And David Burtka
To this day, Neil Patrick Harris is arguably one of the most likable actors in the entertainment industry, thanks to his acting chops and overall natural charisma. Nowadays, Harris is often associated with one particularly legendary role — the fan-favorite Barney Stinson in the TV show How I Met Your Mother. Indeed, his identity is more linked to the role than it ever was to Doogie Howser.
At first, Harris was more than content to accept he won’t find love anytime soon. Well, it’s safe to say that that notion changed with a little help from a moving company. Soon after, he met David Burtka in 2003, and, from that point onward, things went swinging. By 2014, the two made their relationship official by finally tying the knot. Since then, besides finding love and security in each other’s company, Harris and Burtka are also happy fathers to their two adorable kids, twins Gideon and Harper.
Tig Notaro And Stephanie Allynne
Although she is well-known today for her comedic talent, Tig Notaro started her career as a band manager – she can also, to her credit, play the guitar and the drums. Along the way, she began shifting her career onto the stage as a stand-up comedian, a move that has truly paid off for Notaro. She eventually had the chance to release more than a few comedy albums, including the highly acclaimed Live, Boyish Girl Interrupted, and Good One.
At first, Stephanie Allynne considered herself as straight, though that immediately changed when she and Notaro began seeing each other more frequently. Their relationship continued to develop to the point they decided to get married in 2015. Like Notaro, Allynne also has a career in the entertainment industry, appearing in shows like The League, The Mindy Project, and Key & Peele. In more recent news, Allynne is co-writing and producing the Netflix feature First Ladies.
Adam Lambert And Sauli Koskinen
Talent shows have never failed to introduce audiences to stars with immense potential. Adam Lambert first got his shot to stardom when he competed in the world-famous American Idol program. After his time on the show, Lambert continued with his music career and released his debut album For Your Entertainment, which includes the Grammy-nominated track Whataya Want from Me. Soon after, he released his second album, Trespassing. Upon release, it reached the number-one spot of the Billboard 200, with Lambert taking credit for being the first openly gay artist to top the album charts.
From 2011 to 2013, Adam Lambert had a relationship with Sauli Koskinen, a Finnish entertainment reporter. Like Lambert, Koskinen also began his shot to stardom when he competed in Finland’s reality competition, Big Brother. Although the two, unfortunately, ended their relationship, Lambert and Koskinen claim to be good friends still.
Elliot Page And Samantha Thomas
Elliot Page first made a name for himself with his appearance in Trailer Park Boys, Pit Pony, ReGenesis, and Hard Candy. Soon after, he achieved a higher degree of popularity thanks to his role in films like Juno, X-Men: Days of Future Past, Inception, and his motion-capture performance in the game Beyond: Two Souls. In 2014, Elliot, formerly known as Ellen, came out as gay. By the end of 2020, however, he came out as transgender and has since been addressed as Elliot.
From around 2016 to 2017, Elliot had a relationship with then-girlfriend Samantha Thomas. Although she hasn’t made any prominent on-screen appearances yet, Thomas manages to make a name for herself as a painter – many of her works have been showcased in magazines and exhibits. Although the two, sadly, parted ways, Elliot has since found happiness with his wife Emma Portner, whom he married last 2018.
Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Justin Mikita
One of the most popular gay couples in Hollywood is Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Justin Mikita. The two have been married since July 2013 and are having the time of their lives with each other. Given the challenges brought about by this marriage, the two have been strong and steadfast with their love for each other and their very own identities.
Ferguson is known for his performance in the sitcom Modern Family and is also a Broadway star. Mikita, on the other hand, was also an actor before but he took up a degree in law and pursued this later on. Ferguson shared in one of his interviews that he had difficulty with coming out to his family, especially his father, who had a hard time accepting the fact that he was gay. On the other hand, Mikita was diagnosed with cancer when he was only 12 years old. He survived, though, and overcame the disease and has been living well since then.
Miley Cyrus and Kaitlynn Carter
Superstar and A-list celebrity Miley Cyrus was always known to have been in love with Liam Hemsworth for a long time. Kaitlynn Carter, on the other hand, was always with Brody Jenner. After recent developments, however, the two girls have apparently left their men to be with each other. After being married for about a year with Hemsworth, Cyrus broke things off with her longtime lover. A while after this announcement, photos of her and Carter circulated all over social media.
They have also been spotted out together a lot. On top of this, the two are said to be sharing a home already. A lot might have happened in the past year, and these two girls have definitely found themselves in each other. It’s not certain whether they’re separated — there are reports saying they are — but whatever the case may be, they certainly deserve credit for not hiding the fact that they dated.
Megan Rapinoe and Sue Bird
These two athletes make up the cutest female sports couple there is. Megan Rapinoe is known to be a part of FIFA Women’s World Cup and her team was recently hailed as the champion. Sue Bird, meanwhile, is a known WNBA star and has been one since 2002. Both of them have impressive victories in their own fields and collectively have five Olympic gold medals between them.
Even though their reputations are awesome, they actually met like normal people. Rapinoe messaged Bird through some chat messaging app and things just escalated from there. The degree of compatibility between the two is undeniable. Bonded together, they would make the most talented, charismatic, and interesting pair. They might have gone through some challenges along the way, but they have been each other’s source of strength and joy — this is why they were able to overcome all the trials.
Colton Haynes and Jeff Leatham
Actor Colton Haynes rose to fame when he landed a role in the hit TV series Teen Wolf and Arrow. As successful as he is in his career, he also had quite an eventful love life. In an interview with Pink News, he talked about his relationship with Jeff Leatham. Before the two dated, he admitted to having stalked him a little bit because he was so attracted to him. He had every intention to introduce himself but said he always got scared at the last minute.
In the end, he was able to talk to Leatham, a renowned designer, through a mutual friend who set them up. Their relationship bloomed and they even got married after four years of being together. They already had investment planning schemes for their future but ended up going their separate ways after only two years of marriage.
Raven-Symone Pearman and AzMarie Livingston
That’s So Raven star Raven-Symone Pearman rose to fame when she starred in the Disney Channel show that became a hit in the 2000s. In one of her interviews with Oprah in 2014, she mentioned being attracted to both men and women. She revealed that she is now in a relationship with The Empire actress AzMarie Livingston and has been living with her since 2012.
They have been keeping their relationship private, though, so as to maintain the peace between them. Pearman did share, though, that she and Livingston binge-watch Empire a lot, and it is easily one of their favorite things to do together. They must have all these online streaming subscriptions lined up in their credit report if they love watching flicks during their free time. We would love to hear more from them and how they are doing.
Jonathan Adler and Simon Doonan
Celebrity Couple Jonathan Adler and Simon Doonan have been cooped up indoors just like the rest of us during the months of 2020 but have been nourishing their relationship with each other throughout it all. They were able to spend quality time together. They stayed at Shelter Island with their adorable pet dog during the entire season. Doonan said in an interview that he learned that Adler was such a great chef as he has begun cooking up great recipes for both of them because they’ve been having more time together.
The two even shared that they began listening to the Spice Girls and Survivor over the isolation period and have been dancing to their hits. Just like anyone, they had a hard time working from home as well. Though their credit report is intact, it was a challenge for them to be working long distance.
John Barrowman and Scott Gill
Though actor John Barrowman and architect Scott Gill have been together for three decades already, they only had their civil partnership in 2006, and their wedding in 2013. They met each other in 1991 at the Chichester Festival Theatre when Gill saw Barrowman perform in the stage play, Rope. Since then, they knew they were going to be together forever.
Their first date, as Barrowman shared in an interview, was with sensational singer Cher. She apparently wanted to have dinner with Barrowman the night he was supposed to take Gill out so when Barrowman declined her offer, she said to bring a date along. Things turned out well, of course, and now, they are both very happy. Barrowman talked about wanting to adopt and have a family with Gil in the future when their investment planning is ready for it.
Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent
Berkus and Brent are hailed as the first couple of design as they have been sought-out by many clients and have a reputation so great that they ended up having their own TV show, Nate and Jeremiah by Design. The two started off as friends and connections at work. Berkus was putting up his own design firm while Brent was working for the Oprah Winfrey Show at the time.
They were introduced through a mutual friend, and soon after, they decided to go on their first date, which involved using credit cards to buy antiques. It wasn’t long before Brent moved into Berkus’s apartment. In April 2013, the pair got engaged in Peru and had a party with their close friends in Machu Picchu. They got married after one year and are now happily designing ever after. We hope they don’t get bored with each other like most couples in Hollywood do.
Matt Bomer and Simon Halls
Though Matt Bomer has always been a familiar celebrity, he is also known to lead a very private life. He never acknowledged his sexuality publicly until he accepted a Desert AIDS Project humanitarian Award in 2012. He used to date girls back in the day, but when he met Simon Halls, he knew he wanted to spend his life with him. Their wedding was held in New York and it included a small group of people who were nearest and dearest to them.
The two are now parents to three kids: 12-year-old Kit, and nine-year-old twins, Walker and Henry. They were all born through surrogates. In an interview with W Magazine, he gushed about how much he loves being a parent and how he and Halls are very committed to their duties as parents. He said that they will probably have their own stage credits soon and that he didn’t want the kids to be in show business just yet because he wanted a normal childhood for them.
Casey Breves and Sam Tsui
Casey Breves and Sam Tsui both rose to fame as Youtubers who made song covers and their own original songs. The two have kept their relationship a secret until Sam Tsui posted a coming out video on his YouTube channel. A day after the reveal, the couple got married and they shared their wedding on their social media platforms. They were very excited about their marriage, which was held in Carondelet House in Los Angeles.
Tsui posted a photo on his Instagram account of himself and his beau and said that there were more photos to come. He also said he was going to return to making more music right after the wedding. Breves, meanwhile, also posted a photo on their wedding day, and it was captioned “I’m getting married today!” along with a heartfelt thanks to his loved ones for the warmth and support. The two must now have the insurance that they need for their future together.
Cara Delevingne and Ashley Benson
Supermodel Cara Delevingne is known to be a big name celebrity who has chosen a very private life. She did not open up about her personal affairs often, so it surprised many when she finally talked about her relationship with actress Ashley Benson. For more than a year, the two bombshells have been happily together. Delevingne said that she credits Benson for being unique among all the other people she has ever dated before.
She admitted to having the nasty habit of pushing people away but when Benson showed up, things changed and she was able to let her guard down. Because she felt that their love was “sacred” she was sure to let Benson in. In turn, their foundation got stronger than ever. Obstacles may come their way but because they have each other to lean on to, they will be able to overcome all of these things. They are such an inspiration to a lot of girls out there.
Kristen Stewart and Stella Maxwell
Kristen Stewart rose to fame when she landed the role of Bella in the hit Twilight Saga movies. After this, her career took a turn and continued to go upwards. Her love life, however, was another story as she was linked to a lot of celebrities. Most recently, she and Victoria’s Secret model Stella Maxwell have been together on and off for years. They were first seen together in 2017 and there was talk that they moved in together after dating for only 5 months.
In 2018, they were said to have broken up but they were seen again together in 2019. They keep going their separate ways and keep finding their way back to each other. They must really see something in each other that they don’t find in anyone else. They also keep us on our toes because we really want to know the latest about these babes. We’re hoping that after all this time, the electricity between them just keeps growing.
Alison Balian and Saffron Burrows
Saffron Burrows is most known for her role in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. In her personal life, however, she has been with Alison Balian for a while now.

Now 2, their son is a great source of joy to the couple. In an interview, Burrows said that she is really proud of her family and she gave them credit for being her proudest achievement.
She said that she wanted to be perfectly honest with their son as he grew up and that she was so proud of having him. Opening up about her sexuality, she said that she felt limited when she was labeled inaccurately for a while. She said that people should label themselves however they wish. She said that the gay movement is thriving in America and she thought it was something necessary because identity is an important part of one’s life.
Meredith Baxter and Nancy Locke
Baxter married her girlfriend for seven years, Nancy Locke, in a small and intimate gathering in Los Angeles. All the important people in their lives were there, including all five of Baxter’s children. The couple’s vows were handwritten and they gave them to each other during the ceremony. They made music the center of the event. One of their friends presented a series of songs and played the guitar all throughout the evening.
When the reception came, however, Locke and her band gave their guests a mini-concert. The two really made the wedding their own and they even made an investment in dance lessons so that they could have the perfect first dance. As Baxter used to be in a straight relationship, moving on to another phase in her life was not the smoothest ride. She came out in 2009 after having a failed relationship with her kids’ father.
Rhea Butcher and Cameron Esposito
What started out as a great couple became another relationship gone wrong. The comedians Cameron Esposito and Rhea Butcher told Twitter that they have decided to hire a lawyer to help them go their separate ways from now on. They said, however, that the reason they were doing this is because they cared about each other a lot and respected each other enough to allow each other to lead their own lives.
They got married in 2015 and have been very generous in their personal lives with the public. They had a stand-up album together called Back to Back which was launched in 2017. They also worked together on Seeso, Take My Wife, and the podcast Put Your Hands Together. We’re not sure how their careers will go after this but we hope that the duo doesn’t sever ties with each other because they are so entertaining to watch. Hopefully, they will both be in a better place and will eventually take on more projects together in the future.
Bridget Casteen and Dot Marie Jones
This famous couple met back in December 2010. They surely dated and bonded together through thick and thin until 3 years later when they announced their engagement during the Gay Days Anaheim, as shared by Eddie Shapiro, and tied the knot 2 months later. Dot-Marie Jones was internationally known for playing Sheldon Beiste on the musical television series Glee since the second season of the show. Aside from Glee, she appeared in episodes of other TV shows, including Hawthorne, Jane the Virgin, Prison Break, Desperate Housewives, and more.
Her Glee journey began when she requested that Brad Falchuk include her in the show — this was when they met at the supermarket. The request was granted and it became her big break. She’s enjoyed her time in the spotlight during the peak of Glee’s popularity. She may have a low net worth of half a million dollars but this didn’t matter for her. If she wants to increase her net worth, she must consult a financial advisor.
Tristin Chipman and Emily Saliers
Emily Saliers is a member of the musical duo Indigo Girls, along with Amy Ray, whom she met during their school years. They were said to be both fully into music as teenagers. Then, as years passed by, they became close friends and formed their own musical duo together, The B Band — it was renamed to Saliers and Ray after a while. Her wife, Tristin Chapman, served as the tour manager of the band and they happily married in New York.
The state of Georgia where her band Indigo Girls is based hasn’t legalized same-sex marriage at the time so they both announced their engagement in front of the audience during one of their performances at Vogue Theater. Another surprising fact regarding the couple is that they have a daughter named Cleo. The Indigo Girls are known for singles like Dear Mr. President and Galileo.
Monica Coleman and Kate Pierson
If you’re scratching your head about who Kate Pierson is, well, we can only assume the reason is that you’re very young. She’s the co-founder of the B-52s, a band that was really hot in the ‘80s. Pierson and Coleman met together back in 2002 during an event in Woodstock. They’ve done a lot of things together over the years, including operating a business together in the form of Kate Pierson’s Lazy Meadow, a lodging house based in New York. Indeed, they were business partners as well as partners in life.
In 2015, they got married after years of dating, and among the guests who attended were Kate’s fellow B-52s members and Chandelier singer Sia Furler. This lovely couple always spent time together. Regarding Kate Pierson and her solo music career, she had a solo album called Guitars and Microphones, and the songs in the album were all written by none other than Sia Furler.
Sarah Huffman and Abby Wambach
A relationship is sometimes built based on hobbies, such as Abby Wambach and Sarah Huffman’s case. The two are both soccer players and share the same interest in the sport. So much so that they even become teammates in the Washington Freedom soccer team. Abby Wambach started competing internationally back in 2003 when she played at the FIFA Women’s World Cup in the US, scoring three goals in total. In 2004 she competed in the Summer Olympics held in Athens, Greece.
Abby continued competing through the Algarve cup held the following year after the Athens Olympics, where she led the team in winning against Denmark, ending in a 5-0 score. In 2013, she married Sarah Huffman in Hawaii. Besides their football achievements, their marriage undoubtedly became one of the most unforgettable milestones in their lives. Sadly, the two had to call on a lawyer’s help to aid with their separation after three years of marriage.
Jonina Leosdottir and Johanna Sigurdardottir
Johanna Sigurdardottir was the former Prime Minister of Iceland from 2009 up to 2013 and the first openly LGBT head of state. She was an active member of parliament from 1978 up to 2013. Before entering the world of politics, she first worked as an air hostess at Icelandic Airlines for nine years before taking an office job as an office manager from 1971 up to 1978. Her other jobs include getting involved in trade unions, such as being the board member of the Icelandic Cabin Crew Association and the Commercial Workers Union’s Board as a board member.
The future Prime Minister then met Jonina Leosdottir, a well-known novelist, in 1983. However, the two did not date until 1985. Seven years after making their relationship offiial, the two finally decided to tie the knot. Since then, the two have been living a happy and fulfilling life together. Besides their individual careers, we’re pretty sure that these two are also busy handling their investments.
Christine Marinoni and Cynthia Nixon
Cynthia Nixon and Christine Marinoni share the same passion for LGBTQ rights and education, so it’s not surprising that the two fell in love while they were both working with the Alliance for Quality Education back in 2001. Due to his friend being a victim of hate crimes involving LGBTQ, Marinoni became more vocal about the issues surrounding the LGBTQ community. That explains why they hosted events to voice their concerns about LGBTQ discrimination.
2012 then became a big year for both of them as the pair finally decided to tie the knot three years after announcing their engagement at the support gay marriage rally held in New York City. In 2004, she finally came out of the closet, which indeed sent shockwaves to the Sex and the City actress’s fans. The journey to love has definitely been challenging for the two, so credits to them for making their relationship work.
Alex Sykes and Wanda Sykes
After being married to Dave Hall for seven years, Wanda Sykes lived her life as a single person until she met Alex Niedbalski (now Alex Sykes) while onboard a ferry boat in 2006. The pair got married in the same year that Wanda revealed herself as a lesbian. Her coming out happened during the same-sex marriage rally event held at Las Vegas, Nevada, back in 2008. The following year, the two got blessed with twins, namely Olivia Lou and Lucas Claude, and they grew up speaking both French and English, showing just how gifted these children are.
Indeed those two years have been unforgettable to both Wanda and Alex, all thanks to the countless precious moments and milestones that marked their relationship. She is known for her impressive acting credits and voice roles in movies such as Over the Hedge voicing Stella and Ice Age: Continental Drift/Collision Course as Granny.
Marianne Dupon and Yasmine
Hilde Rens, or prominently known as Yasmine, was a Belgian singer who hosted Belgian television programs Zo Is Er Maar Een and was the voice-over for the Dutch language Belgian television station Een. When it comes to music, she dreamt of becoming a singer when she was still a kid. That dream finally got fulfilled when she sang Julie Covington’s Don’t Cry For Me Argentina on a talent show she joined when she was younger. It also marked her first television appearance during the 80s.
Yasmine later made her debut album with Mooi Zo, released in 1991. Five years after releasing her debut album, she finally came out of the closet as a lesbian and became an LGBT icon. She was married to Marianne Dupon, who was known for winning on the television show De Mol way back in 2003. The loving couple then welcomed their daughter named Ella-Louise, in 2007. We’re pretty sure they have set up educational insurance to prepare for her future.
Allison Mack and Nicki Clyne
If there’s one thing Nicki Clyne and Allison Mack have in common, it’s their appearance on the hit series Smallville. While Clyne appeared on the episode called “Nicodemus,” Allison Mack, on the other hand, appeared full time on the show as Chloe Sullivan. Nicki Clyne rose to prominence for her role in Battlestar Galactica as Cally Henderson. Other than that, she appeared and guested on various television shows such as The Twilight Zone, Mysterious Ways, Dead Like Me, Totally Awesome and more while Allison Mack appeared on films such as The Ant Bully, Marilyn, You, Purgatory, Honey We Shrunk Ourselves.
On television, with the exception of Smallville, the actress made a couple of appearances on 7th Heaven, The Nightmare Room, Wilfred, and more. She later earned directorial credits for directing two Smallville episodes called “Power” and “Warrior”. They both walked down the aisle last February 2017. Sadly, the two have decided to part ways in December of 2020.
Mario Cantone and Jerry Dixon
After years of being life partners, Mario Cantone and Jerry Dixon finally made a giant leap and decided to get hitched in an intimate 2011 wedding. The two initially met in 1991 after eating at the Del Posto restaurant by celebrity chef Mario Batali and well-known restaurateur Lidia Bastianich. Little did they know that that moment was going to mark the beginning of a long and happy relationship.
As an actor and comedian, Mario appeared in one of Comedy Central’s Chappelle’s Show episodes. The actor was then prominently known for portraying Anthony Marentino, a fictional event planner on the television show Sex and the City. On the other hand, Jerry Dixon was known for his works on Broadway and debuted in the musical play called Once on this Island. Last 2016, both of them performed live at Bay Street Theater with the show entitled How Long Has This Been Going On, where they sang together and impressed those audiences with their songs. Besides sharing the same passion for performing, we bet these two also share some very impressive investments.
Matt Dallas and Blue Hamilton
Matt Dallas, known as Kyle Trager in Kyle XY, came out of the closet back in 2013. At the same time, he announced his engagement to Blue Hamilton. Two years later, they happily tied the knot during the Independence Day celebration. He proudly posted the moment on Instagram, showing both of them in their black wedding ensembles while holding the marriage license under the sun.
Aside from Kyle XY, he also had a recurring role on both Baby Daddy and Eastwick and appeared on other television shows such as Anne & Jake and Entourage. He made his movie debut with the film known as Way of the Vampire and had other appearances in movies such as Babysitter Wanted, Naughty or Nice, Painted Woman, Life Tracker, Naughty or Nice, and more. Besides his TV and film career, Matt also earned credits by starring in Katy Perry’s music video for Thinking of You.
P. David Ebersole and Todd Hughes
Todd Hughes was known for directing short films entitled Ding Dong and Kaka Ferskur. He and P. David Ebersole teamed up on producing or directing films like the 2012 documentary Room 237. While they both served as executive producers for the film, they decided to split the credits on their next documentary, Dear Mom, Love Cher. This time, Ebersole serves as the director and executive producer while Todd Hughes acted as both producer and executive producer.
Both of them served as the director of the 2017 film Mansfield 66/67, which participated in several film festivals like Frameline Film Festival, Provincetown International Film Festival, Buenos Aires International Festival of Independent Cinema, and Cannes’ Marche du Film. It only proves that they are both film geeks working together as a couple. Given their talent and passion for filmmaking, we can safely assume that these two lovebirds will go on to make several quality movies in the future.
Stephen Fry and Elliott Spencer
Nowadays, having a large age gap or being the same gender as your partner is nothing surprising. Such was the case for Elliott Spencer, who is 30 years younger than the famed actor Stephen Fry. The two met and began dating back in 2014 and tied the knot just a year after making their relationship official. Some people often mistake the couple as father and son, but that’s obviously not the case.
According to the couple, one of their secrets in making their relationship work is their love for art and attending various art exhibits. It has worth noting that Elliott is always on Stephen’s side through thick and thin. Elliott Spencer is known as a photographer and often curates his impressive shots on Twitter. On the other hand, Stephen Fry became known for his soothing voiceovers on Harry Potter audiobooks and Humanist UK videos. We bet their credit scores are just as impressive as their careers.
Mark Gatiss and Ian Hallard
Remember The League Of Gentlemen? If you do, you’ll remember who Mark Gatiss is due to his punchlines and jokes on the said comedy show, plus he gained an overall recognition for being part of that program. Not only that, he gained further prominence after starring in the hit HBO fantasy series Game of Thrones as Tycho Nestrosis.
Together, Hallard and Gatiss were both featured in the 2010 film entitled The First Men in The Room, where Gatiss played Cavor, and Hallard provided Phi-Oo’s voice. Gatiss met Ian Hallard via a dating site, and they were married in Middle Temple in London, the United Kingdom, way back in 2008. We wish this couple good health and keep their relationship healthier always. It would also be beneficial for the couple to start investing their income in profitable and quality investments to secure their family’s financial status in the future.
If you are fond of watching television shows, then you’ll know who Alia Shawkat is. She is known for playing Maeby Funke’s roles in Arrested Development, Dory Sief in Search Party, and Alexander Hamilton/Frances Cleveland/Virginia Hall in Drunk History. During her earlier years, she had a taste in fashion and was featured on Calvin Klein’s catalog and also appeared along with her friend Ellen Page (now Elliot Page) in the October 2009 issue of Bust Magazine. Her recent appearances were on The Old Man, playing the role of Angela and Love Spreads, playing Kelly’s part.
In 2017, reports revealed that she came out of the closet as a Bisexual person, and everyone who is a fan of Arrested Development was undoubtedly shocked by her admission. However, regardless of her gender identity, she indeed still has the support of her fans. It’s definitely not easy coming out in an industry like Hollywood, which is why Alia deserves credit for being brave and confident with herself.
Ezra Miller (Open Relationship)
Ezra Miller is a talented actor who has appeared on various projects, but we mostly loved him in The Perks of Being a Wallflower alongside Logan Lerman and Emma Watson. His character was delivered perfectly by the actor and has inspired many young people struggling to find their true identity. However, besides his roster of acting credits, Ezra also has an extensive dating history. Once, Ezra got photographed with a fan, raising the conclusion that he was his boyfriend. Especially since the actor revealed very early on that, he is queer. According to Ezra, he’s formed a band of queer, with people he can be friends with but can also be involved with romantically.
He is open to being referred to as “he” or “she.” The actor also experiments a lot in fashion and makeup. He was even engaged to the beautiful Erin Urb once, but unfortunately, they didn’t work out and called it quits. Currently, there are no clear reports as to who Ezra Millers is with or if it is a boy or just one boy, but maybe he is also experimenting on his identity and is still on his path to self-discovery.
Glenn Greenwald and David Miranda
Glenn Greenwald is an American journalist, former lawyer, and author. He and Brazilian politician David Miranda have been married since 2005. Their romance and relationship have been a beacon of light and strength to many LGBT couples worldwide, especially since they are Brazilian. If you don’t already know, Brazil’s leader recently expressed his desire to sweep away the right of the LGBTQ community. Despite the challenge, Glenn and David chose to stay in the country and fight for what they believe in and give other couples freedom.
They could live anywhere in the world if they want to, but they chose to stay in their country. We can only hope that they would have the exact amount of support and protection in the future. Aside from the controversial side of their marriage, they actually have an adorable love story. David and Glen first met at a beach, it was love at first sight, and now, this strong and lovely couple share two children.
Sean Hayes and Scott Icenogle
We all knew and loved Sean Hayes in the hit TV show Will and Grace. He has one of the most beloved characters in the show. His character has spread so much inspiration to viewers around the world. Other than that, Sean is a role model for the LGBT community as well. He and his musician husband, Scott Icenogle, have been married since 2014. At the age of 50, Sean and Scott continue to hope for positivity and human equality. In fact, this is what they do regularly. They talk about their marriage and their life together. The couple probably also discuss investments.
Sean hopes that people would someday normalize relationships like theirs and that everyone would realize that we are human first. They do fun and amazing stuff together as a couple too. They sang Flo Rida’s hit I Don’t Like It, I Love It together on lip sync, which became viral on YouTube.
Axel Hirsoux is a Belgian singer. The 38-year-old represented Belgium in the Eurovision Song Contest 2014 in Copenhagen, Denmark. He’s been active in the years 2013 up to the present. During his time of competition, Axel received more than 50 percent of the televoters. It shows how much of an inspiration he is both in his career and his personal life. He is an inspiration to many people in the LGBT community because he is never ashamed of his identity.
When Axel finally decided to release his official studio version and the official music video of Mother, he received mixed reactions from fans. Most of them are happy that the long anticipation is over, but some also said that they preferred his final version, in which it looks like his boyfriend was romantically singing along with him. Although Axel never revealed his boyfriend’s name or mention it on his social media platforms, we can still tell they are two good-looking lads who are very much in love. They most definitely deserve credit for keeping their relationship private and strong.
Garry Kief and Barry Manilow
Barry Manilow is not only a legend in the music industry. This 77 years old phenomenon of a singer is also a one guy type of guy. He’s been with his husband, Garry Kief, for more than 40 years now. The two tied the knot in 2014 after being friends and co-workers for years. Barry courageously opened up about their secret emotional wedding and recalled how he never expected the wedding to be that emotional.
Before he fell in love with Gary, the superstar admitted that he was pretty lonely, but Gary didn’t know much about it. They were just working together when he began admiring Gary for his intelligence. The connection was instant, and the rest is history. Not only did Barry Manilow deliver some of the most romantic songs in the world, but he also led a very romantic life. Now, they’re still going strong and probably have some shared investments together.
T. R. Knight and Patrick Leahy
T.R. Knight and Patrick Leahy are both young, good-looking fellows who are very much in love with each other. Knight is adored and admired for his role in the hit TV series Grey’s Anatomy.

In 2013, the two decided to make things official and get married. On their recent tenth anniversary celebration, Knight exclaimed that his goal was to keep trying to deserve Patrick. The 47-year-old actor and his talented writer/ballet dance husband love to go on trips and adventures together. They often share their journey with their fans and followers on social media. They often receive a lot of love from the people who support them and the people they inspire. They are definitely an inspiring pair, and we give them credit for it.
Michael Kors and Lance LePere
We all know Michael Kors for being a massive name in the fashion world. What we do not know is that, in real life, he is a romantic. He and his husband, Lance LePere, have been together for more than 20 years now. It might have taken them quite a while to make things official but what matters is that they have conquered their challenges together. The two live in an exquisite New York City high-flying yet down to earth style apartment.
From the inside view, you could immediately tell how much their place reflects their personalities and passion. There are two fireplaces inside with fancy flooring, making the room extra cozy. It also has art hanging everywhere, a fashion representation of Kors’ passion, and some of Lance’s photography choices. Michael Kors’ accolades and pictures of him with his legendary friends in Hollywood also fill the walls. No matter how far he’d come, Kors made sure that he and his husband never forget where they came from, as their apartment also had a lot of pictures from their childhood and family.
Jim Parsons and Todd Spiewak
Jim Parsons is the actor we all remember from the hit TV show The Big Bang Theory. He married TV producer Todd Spiewak in 2017 after waiting for 15 years. According to the actor, the whole thing was spontaneous, and that they didn’t put that much effort into it. Still, Jim said that it was more romantic and deep than he ever thought it would be. He also said that he’s been gay all his life and adult life, and he never guessed that life would be okay for him.
These two have a love story that inspires all genders. Jim and Todd met on a blind date during the early year of 2002. Two female friends arranged it at a karaoke bar where Todd sang Cher’s hit I Found Someone. During his Emmy win, Jim gave a heartwarming speech, and one of the people he gave credit and thanked was Todd. It went slightly unnoticed, but fans put two and two together by the time the two announced their relationship and became public with it.
Dave Rubin and David Janet
Dave Rubin is a political commentator, talk show host, comedian, and the Rubin Report creator. This 44-year-old handsome millionaire has been married to his husband, David Janet, since 2015. The two actually have a charming love story. Dave and David had been set up for quite a while back then, but it never happened until the two met at a funeral. David wasn’t keen on dating a redhead, and Dave wasn’t so comfortable about the eyeball either. As interesting as their meet up sounds, their engagement and the wedding ceremony was even more exciting. Dave proposed to David during a Fleetwood Mac concert when the song Dreams was playing.
The couple even waited until someone played the song before they had their first dance at their wedding reception. Former POTUS Donald Trump met Dave and David, and at first hand, he had no idea that the two were married. As he found out, he congratulated the two, and he even said that the couple’s only problem was that they were both too handsome. The two probably have several investments now that they’re married.
Mark Andrew and Gene Robinson
Gene Robinson is the world’s first openly gay bishop. He and his ex-wife Isabella weren’t exactly a match made in heaven, so the two decided to end their union in 1986. Thankfully, the bishop found his heavenly match when he met Mark Andrew. A few years after being legally separated from his ex-wife, Gene met Andrew. He said he was instantly drawn into him and knew right away that he is the calming sea in his storm of waters. He got asked several times what he thinks God thinks about LGBT marriages; Gene always says that he believes God cares about all relationships. He also maintains that pre-marriage counseling to couples is essential for couples who are soon-to-be-married.
However, the journey wasn’t always smooth sailing for the two. Since Gene was the first religious leader to be elected and consecrated into his congregation, they had to make sure that, on his special day, top-notch security systems and personnel were in place. Gene and his entire family even had to wear a bulletproof vest. Photographs were all over the world during the very next day.
Tituss Burgess and Pablo Salinas
Tituss Burgess is an actor beloved for his role on Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. He used to be on Broadway when he found tremendous love and support from Tina Fey, who embraced him in Hollywood. Well, one musical loss is a television gain. However, despite being well-loved by several fans, Tituss revealed in an interview that he feels like he is the most boring rainbow of “gay men.”
He said that the world could call him with all four labels – old, black, gay, big. For him, that is one of the strongest aspects he can carry to encourage and strengthen himself and stand up for what he believes in, even if this cruel world is breathing down his neck. The humble and very gifted actor has never given details about how he met his four-year boyfriend, Pablo Salinas. He also doesn’t talk about when they started dating exactly, but they deserve credit for staying strong in an industry like Hollywood.
Evan Rachel Wood and Katherine Moennig
Evan Rachel Wood is a talented and beautiful actress. She and her ex-husband Jamie Bell had only been together for two years when the two decided to call the lawyers, finalize their separation, and move on their separate lives. The brunette beauty has had several accolades for her acting career and got nominated for a few awards. From Marilyn Manson to Angelina Jolie, she had quite the dating record, although some were nothing but rumors.
However, a few years ago, Evan got spotted strolling on a boulevard and getting coffee with True Blood alumni Katherine Moennig. It became a routine, and the two finally went public in their relationship. Although it didn’t end on a happily ever after and the two beauties decided to call it quits, they sure had a whirlwind romance, a love story to cherish, and a friendship, which, according to them, was the most important thing.
Kiersey Clemons and Ebony De La Haye
Kiersey Clemons made a name for herself when she earned acting credits in the hit film Dope. She is also one of the actresses who came out as queer very early on in their careers. She later found love with Ebony De La Haye while vacationing in Fiji. Before they had the perfect getaway, though, Ebony was already a part of Kiersey’s life. She was her stunt double. The two met way back in 2017. They actually have the best time quarantining together, and according to the actress, it sometimes just goes down to what they were going to have for lunch and dinner that day, and the day is still fantastic.
They also never expected that they could handle their long-distance relationship so very well. The other one’s in L.A. and the other one’s in Singapore, but they decided to just move in together at the end of the day. It was for the best of everyone, and it turned out pretty great. The two lovely brunettes are also thankful that their relationship started off being friends at work. It served as an excellent foundation for their relationship.
Lee Pace and Matthew Foley
The handsome actor Lee Pace, whom we all fell in love with in the hit film The Hobbit, is as stunning as his elf character is in real life. Although he might have an intimidating character in the movie, he is the complete opposite in person. He is very charming and has a great sense of humor. He is also a very courageous man for being unapologetically himself when it comes to the topic of his sexuality. The 41-year-old is open with his relationship with his boyfriend, Matthew Foley, on social media.

On April 2014, they decided to get married and they even gave the media permission to cover the whole event. They wanted the public to know that their relationship is authentic, in the hope that there would be less drama after their union. The event was simple, but what it symbolized certainly wasn’t.
