How to be a Gay Icon: step one: Get outed!
I've noticed that gay celebs are coming out. And I also noticed that some of them are forced out by some blogger, arrest, or news group. So I wonder, would these guys came out if they wasn't forced to do so? Maybe...in a few years? However once they are out here, they got a story to tell and sometimes for a profit.
Or they ended up on the cover of the Advocate.
I'm not sure what to really think about this. Sometimes I'm cool with it and other times I'm not. We should support them, they are our people. But at the same time, if they remained closeted would they still speak out for us?
