With more and more people becoming open with others’ sexualities (or their own, in any case), it’s only fitting that we pay tribute to those moments that truly awed us. Here are Hollywood’s 10 proudly gay celebs!

If yes, then Ricky is one lucky guy. The dude is oozing hot and vice versa! Soon after Ricky came out about his homosexuality, the two were spotted on a holiday at St. Barts on March 30th. There was no PDA involved, but the two happily spent their day at the beach doing push-ups, playing ball, and getting a tan.
Although Ricky finally confirmed those long-time rumors about his sexuality, he still prefers to keep his life low-key. He neither confirmed nor denied that the guy he was spotted with is indeed his boyfriend.
But if his body language is any indication, then all I can say is that Ricky is so happy! Let’s just leave it at that.
Ricky said it best: “To keep living as I did up until today would be to indirectly diminish the glow that my kids where born with.”
Last week, Latin singer Ricky Martin came out about his homosexuality and it rocked the entertainment world—or maybe not.
C’mon, don’t tell me you actually thought he was straight the whole time? When he shook his bon bons to perfection in 1999 and chose not to hook up with the hottest chicks in the planet, did you actually believe he was saving himself for marriage?
When he posted this statement on his fan site: “I am proud to say that I am a fortunate homosexual man,” I was proud of Ricky! I have worshipped his good looks since his Menudo days and it’s about time he came out so that he could finally live his life and raise his two kids in peace.
Ricky came out clean; it was short and sweet—no dramatic TV appearance, no soul-baring magazine interviews, no glamorous photo shoot, and no big project to promote.
Like many, I have pondered about what he should do next. A reality show, perhaps? We’d tune in to life of a homosexual Grammy-winning singer trying to raise his two adopted kids in Hollywood. Or how about a new movie and album? He should take advantage of the potential rise in sales now that all eyes are on him. What about a series of TV appearances, magazine interviews, and other spotlight-hogging projects that previous coming-out celebrities did in their own time?
I say Ricky Martin should just stick to what he’s been doing since he came out last week—absolutely nothing. Who needs the drama, anyway?
What’s a Grammy show without those who’d dare stun us with their choice of threads, crazy antics, or mere celebrity presence? Read on to see why these five stars incurred a little gasp from yours truly.
“The homosexual community wants me to be gay. The heterosexual community wants me to be straight. Every writer thinks, I’m the journalist who’s going to make him talk. I pray for them. I pray that they get a life and stop living mine!”

During a recent performance in Puerto Rico MartinÂ gave a gesture when he sang his popular song “Asignatura Pendiente.”
In the song there is a line in the lyrics that goes a little something like this, “A photo with Bush….”Â During this particular line Martin have the crowd of 18,000 fans a show of his middle finger.
After Ricky boy gave Bush the F-you treatment, the crowd fell into crazy cheering & support.Â
What do you think of little Ricky now?
