Here are all of the celebrities who have bravely come out as LGBTQ+ in 2024, proving that it's never too late to live your authentic life. So here are all the stars who opened up and decided to live their truth this year. Welcome to the fam!

Daniel Bedingfield

Singer Daniel Bedingfield first broke through in 2001 with his hit "Gotta Get Thru This," Now the singer has opened up again, this time about the man he loved.

During a performance London Palladium on April 23, Bedingfield shared his song ‘Borderline’ had a queer history. “I wrote this song with a man I loved about a girl we both loved,” he said. “In my era, you had to be gay or straight, or fuck you.”

He continued: “I’m not very gay, but we were on a hot spring, sitting on a rock, missing her.”

Bethany Antonia

House of the Dragon star Bethany Antonia came out as a gay on her Instagram on April 20. While we were delighted to learn that the actor is officially fam, it wasn't the joyful coming out we would have wished for her. Antonia plays Princess Baela Targaryen in House of the Dragon.

Targaryens have traditionally been depicted as white with blonde hair, and the inclusion of Black actors in these particular roles has received some racist trolling online. The racist message Antonia received was another instance of backlash against the diverse casting backlash. Antonia shared the message on her IG stories, with the caption, "Wait till they find out I'm gay too' with an emoji of a clown's face."

While that troll was certainly a clown, we are still thrilled to count Antonia as a member of our rainbow family.

Sophia Bush

Sophia Bush has been the subject of endless speculation ever since it was revealed last fall that she and soccer star Ashlyn Harris were dating. However, in an essay for Glamour, the One Tree Hill alum clarified that those accusations were unfounded. According to Bush, it's just a tale of two friends who supported one another through a mutually difficult time. She didn't even realize there might be more to it until other people they knew pointed it out.

"I don't know how else to say it other than: I didn't see it until I saw it. And I think it's very easy not to see something that's been in front of your face for a long time when you'd never looked at it as an option and you had never been looked at as an option," she said.

Although Bush noted that she hates the idea of "having to come out in 2024," she did confirm that she's come to the conclusion she currently identifies as queer. And we officially welcome her with open arms to the alphabet mob!

Matt Terry

The X-Factor season 13 winner Matt Terry opened up about his sexuality for the first time with the release of his new single "His Car" on March 22. After years of speculation in the British tabloids about his sexuality, the new song details the first relationship he ever had a with a man which he kept secret.

“I am so ready to show who I am with my music,” he said in an interview with the Gay Times. “Throughout the years, I’ve had media reach out and offer me money like, ‘We’ll give you this much if you want to talk about your sexuality,’ and I would say, ‘Absolutely not.’ I’m too proud and have too much self-respect. But now, I want to set the record straight with this song and video.”




Popular Twitch streamer F1NN5TER took a big step when he shared with fans that he’s been taking hormone replacement therapy (HRT) and now identifies as genderfluid.

In a YouTube video titled “Coming Out,” F1NN5TER shared that “it felt a bit like I’d uncovered a part of myself that I’d been purposely shutting down for as long as I could remember, and never questioned why.”

“I spent so many months scared and stressed out, trying to pick a label. I’m still not done yet. I still haven’t figured absolutely everything out, but I’m feeling comfortable enough to talk about it now,” he said.

For now, he decided that the label of genderfluid is what suits him best, and that he still prefers he/him pronouns. However, he acknowledges that might change, said that he’s ultimately fine with any pronouns, and that what he tells people in real life about his gender identity is, “I just don’t care.”

He also shared that he identifies as bi. “I like dudes!” he said. “That’s weird to say. Everything I say feels like a bit now. Goddammit.”

Jasmine Pineda

90 Day Fiancé star Jasmine Pineda opened up about her sexuality during the first episode of the Tell All reunion special for this season when she revealed that the costar she'd like to have children with is her trans costar, Nikki Exotika.

She went on to explain that she has dated women in the past. have had girlfriends in the past so I get attracted to women as well as men. I don’t know, I’ve always had a crush on Nikki.”

Grace Wilson

Australian soccer player Grace Wilson made history when they became the first A-League soccer player in the country to come out as nonbinary. “It simply just means that my gender, and my perception of gender doesn’t fit into the Western standards of man or woman. And so, for me, personally, I don’t really feel like I’m anywhere near that,” Wilson said on the club’s official website and Instagram page.

Colin Grafton

Professional figure skater Colin Grafton has been kicking butt on the ice for years, including with Team USA and two seasons as a star on Dancing on Ice. Now, he's living his most authentic self after coming out on February 24 in an interview with Pink News. “If I’m honest, I never really felt the need to announce it before but the reason I am saying this now is because I want to show that there is representation in any way I can," he explained.

Reneé Rapp

Singer and Mean Girls reboot star Reneé Rapp joined the fam back in 2022 when she came out as bisexual in a Vogue interview, but this year, she announced she’s a lesbian! She hinted at this new sexual identity on social media before stating it more directly on a recent episode of Andy Cohen’s SiriusXM radio show.

Amanda Tori Meating

Drag Race season 16 queen Amanda Tori Meating has been winning fans over every week with her humor and biting clap-backs on the current season of the famed drag competition show. Before filming Drag Race, Meating had been identifying as nonbinary but has now come out as trans, following in the footsteps of other Drag Race stars who have since come out as trans, like Jade Jolie, Adore Delano, and, recently, Madame LaQueer (keep scrolling).

"[I was] in this environment for the first time where everyone's calling me Amanda and not my government name, and realizing how good that felt, and I started to feel a bit more comfortable in the reformation of my identity," Meating told EW of how her experience on Drag Race helped her come to terms with her trans identity.

Tom Hollander

White Lotus’ Tom Hollander has been playing gay characters for years, including his star turn as Truman Capote in the upcoming FX mini-series Feud: Capote vs. The Swans, but now he’s officially come out as "sufficiently liberal" in his sexuality though he refused to put a label on it — and made it clear that he would not be doing so at any time in the future.

In a recent interview with Vanity Fair, when asked about his own sexual identity, he answered, “As a person? I do, yeah. I’m somebody that walks into a room and there are some people who walk into the room, you go, ‘Well, they’re not gay,’ and ‘They are gay.’ My own sexuality is sufficiently liberal to have encompassed many different experiences, which are not anyone’s business.”

Madame LaQueer

RuPaul's Drag Race season 4 star Madame LaQueer started 2024 by coming out as trans in her Instagram Story and embraced her true identity as her full identity as Madame Cassandra Uzumaki LaQueer. LaQueer, who has known she was trans since 2006, but kept talking herself out of it, said from now on she'll be going by Cassie when she's out of drag.

“It’s something I’ve been pondering for myself for years,” she told Entertainment Weekly, noting she’d go by the name Cassie out of drag from here on out. “It’s now or never…It’s never too late to come out and live your true experience and be yourself and be authentic. There’s nothing like feeling loved in your own skin.”

Parvati Shallow

Reality tv star Parvati Shallow hit it big when she won $1 million on Survivor: Micronesia — Fans vs. Favorites, but it wasn't until this year that she was able to live as her true authentic self.

The 41-year-old celeb came out and hard launched her new relationship all at the same time. She took to Instagram to post a strip of Photo Booth pics with her new girlfriend comedian Mae Martin, 36. "We’re here. We’re queer. Happy new year," she wrote in the caption.

Parvati technically came out on December 30, but since she wished everyone a Happy New Year in her coming out post on social media, we're counting it for 2024!

Erika Casupana

Survivor alum Erika Casupana stole fans hearts when she took home the big bucks on season 41 of the iconic reality tv competition. She also made history as the first Canadian to win and the first woman to win in seven seasons, according to The Pink News.

Now the reality star has come out as LGBTQ+ and we couldn't be happier about it. She made the announcement in a cheeky video posted to Instagram on December 31, 2023 — we're counting her as coming out in 2024 because who was still conscious enough on New Year's Eve to have been paying attention?

In the funny video, Casupana joked that she tried the tradition of eating grapes under the table on New Year's Eve in hopes of getting a boyfriend, but since she was out of grapes she "chugged wine" instead and "realized I'm a lesbian."

Mario Alcalde

Mario Alcalde just made history as the very first Spanish bullfighter to come out as LGBTQ+. The 31-year-old matador from Madrid just announced he's pansexual in a new interview.

“I am a bullfighter. I go at my own pace. I think differently than other bullfighters. My tastes are not the norm in bullfighting. Both politically and sexually,” he told the Spanish outlet El Mundo, Queerty reports.

“I am pansexual and I feel very identified with the LGTBI flag. I fall in love with the interior, I don’t care about gender.”
