Coming out is never easy, especially when you're in the public eye.
We at toofab give props to the gay and lesbian celebrities who are out and proud. In the last few months, a number of high-profile stars have come out. "Star Trek" actor Zachary Quinto confirmed he was gay in an interview with New York Magazine. "The Big Bang Theory" star Jim Parsons' discussed his sexuality when he was profiled by the New York Times. And "Magic Mike" hunk Matt Bomer thanked his longtime partner and family during an acceptance speech.
