Coming out as gay is a really frightening decision. And experience. For a normal individual, the anxiety and fear coming out might cause one could be overwhelming. How much more for a celebrity? A superstar, or a music icon? Criticisms certainly will never be out of the picture. Hate is another thing.
Imagine how difficult for a celebrity to come out. A celebrity capitalises on his or her following – the fans. And, being in the blindspot of how the fans might react, coming out as gay if you are a celebrity could really be frightening.
Alan Cumming, known for his roles in ‘X Men’ and ‘The Good Wife’, spoke on Larry King Now about his sexuality. He said: “Yeah I mean I’ve always been bisexual. I had a boyfriend before I was married and I’ve always sort of felt I was bisexual.”
He married his long time partner, Grant Shaffer in 2007 in London. They remarried in 2012 in New York.
