Sorry ladies! These famous male stars are not only gorgeous but also out of the closet. But that's OK because we straight women can still dream about them, and our boyfriends and husbands won't get jealous. And gay men can start rejoicing about all the hot gay celebrities that are out and about. Let's start reading about these top 10 super-hot, gay celebs.
1) Cheyenne Jackson - 35 (pictured)
You might recognize the 6'4" super-hot, dark-haired and blue-eyed Cheyenne from "Glee" and "30 Rock." This gorgeous man is part Native-American and was raised in rural Washington State by an evangelical Christian family. His love of theater had him move to New York and soon he was in Broadway shows and landed several TV roles. He came out at 19; which was originally a hard thing for his conservative family to take, but now they accept him as he is. Cheyenne is taken though and has been with his partner for 10 years.
2) Zachary Quinto - 33
Zach is of Irish and Italian decent that has made him prefect for the ambiguous roles he's played on "Heroes" and as Spock in the 2009 "Star Trek" film remake. Although he isn't officially out, Zach is a big gay activist and gay marriage supporter. His reasoning for not letting his sexuality out of the bag is that he doesn't want to fuel the tabloid rumor mill.
3) Adam Lambert - 29
Adam is the beautiful and golden-voiced singer made famous from his 2009 "American Idol" appearance. He subsequently came out of the closet in a Rolling Stone interview that ran after he was named the runner-up on "American Idol" and was unapologetic as he strutted his sexuality on his sleeve. He got tongues wagging during his 2009 American Music Awards performance where he kissed his male keyboard player and showed other hyper-sexual acts. But Adam is one of the most successful and first openly-gay singers that "American Idol" has launched. He's also the hottest by far.
4) Neil Patrick Harris - 37
A lot of gay actors stay in the closet because they think that if they come out then they won't be considered for straight roles; which are the majority of the roles out there. But Neil's sexuality hasn't prevented him from brilliantly playing straight womanizers on TV's "How I Met Your Mother" and in the "Harold & Kumar" films. Neil is probably the most-famous gay celebrity nowadays and he actually became more famous once he came out. What makes Neil hot is his ability to make fun of himself and the fact that he's a father with his longtime partner.
5) Ricky Martin - 39
This super-cute Latino singer finally came out of the closet in March 2010. Rumors around Ricky's sexuality had swirled for years. But after Ricky became a new father to twin boys he was inspired by them to let the world know that he was a proud and fortunate gay man. Ricky will be taking his kids with him on his 2011 tour for his latest album "Musica + Alma + Sexo."
6) B.D. Wong - 50
B.D. is probably the best-known gay male and Asian-American actor working in Hollywood. B.D. didn't come out until 2003 after the premature birth of his son via surrogate with his then partner. In the book B.D. wrote about his son's struggle for survival, B.D. subsequently also announced that he was gay. B.D. is hot because of his doggedness to stay entrenched in Hollywood as not only a racial minority but also now as an out-of-the-closet actor.
7) Bryan Batt - 48
Suave gentleman Bryan is best known for his role of in-the-closet "Sal" on "Mad Men." The show is set in the 1960s so most gay men back then in the corporate world had to remain closeted in order to succeed. Bryan played the conflicted Sal brilliantly but unfortunately the character only survived through three seasons. Since his stint on the show ended, Bryan has been keeping busy at his and his partner's home design store in New Orleans. Bryan has been with his longtime partner for 22 years!
8) John Amaechi - 40
This 6'10" British national is of Nigerian decent and is best known as a retired NBA star. In 2007, John was the first NBA player to come out of the closet. It's very admirable in a world of professional, macho athletes to openly admit that you are a gay man, so kudos to John for paving the way for others. Since retiring from the NBA, John has turned to sports broadcasting and political activism.
9) Tom Ford - 49
Tom is simply the sexiest fashion designer and movie director there is. No wonder - before he turned to fashion design he was a model. What makes Tom hot is his absolute creative drive as well as his longtime relationship. It doesn't hurt that Tom is always impeccably dressed in fitted suits, sometimes with a daring open collar, and is always impeccably groomed with a hint of stubble. Tom's also been with his longtime partner, fashion journalist Richard Buckley, for 24 years!
10) J.P. Calderon - 35
This Latino hottie caught our eye on "Survivor: Cook Islands." J.P. is now a professional volleyball player and a model. J.P. came out in a 2007 Instinct Magazine interview.
