The 25 Most Googled Gay People; You Might be Surprised

A few you probably didn’t know.

     Maybe I’m just out of the loop.  I was reading an article this afternoon about the whole overblown Adam Lambert saga, and I saw a link to an article called “The 25 most googled gay celebrities”.  It occurred to me that  I couldn’t name a half dozen, so I clicked on it.  And discovered that half of Hollywood is now gay.

     Bit of an exaggeration, but there are an awful lot of gay celebrities out there that I didn’t know were gay.  Weren’t the republicans supposed to send me a memo on this?  No wonder the racist, prejudiced old guard let a black guy into the White House.  They’re asleep at the wheel.

     There are a number of reasons I may have missed this stuff.  For starters, I really just don’t care about a person’s sexuality.  Very much a live and let live kind of guy, I guess. Maybe it’s because I’m more of a news and sports type.  Maybe I’m just slow.

     At any rate, some of these really surprised me.  See if they surprise you as well…

25.  Wanda Sykes

Didn’t know this one.  I love Wanda.  This one’s black and gay.  tHE ELEPHANTS REALLY ARE SLEEPING.

24.  Cynthia Nixon

Easy to explain this one; never seen an episode of ‘Sex in the city’ in my life.

23.  Neil Patrick Harris

Doogie’s gay?

22.  Rosie O’Donnell

OK, at least I knew Rosie was gay.

21.  Samantha Ronson

No idea who this even is.

20.  Rachel Maddow

I feel a bit silly here… I watch her all the time and had no clue.

19.  Boy George

Knew this one in 1984.

18.  Lance Bass

This almost makes all of those boy band jokes prophetic.

17.  Portia De Rossi

The one that broke America’s Male population’s heart.

16.  Ani DiFranco

I saw her in concert years ago… she referred to herself as ‘a big dyke’.  Still didn’t realize it till 1998.

15.  Tom Ford

Another one I didn’t know.

14.  Melissa Etheridge

Another one I can proudly say I knew about.

13.  Jodie Foster

This one really surprised me.  My wife knew all of the others, but this one even got her.

12.  Rufus Wainwright

Another stranger.

11.  Adam Lambert

If we didn’t know a week ago, we do now.

10.  Suze Orman


9.  Anderson Cooper

I watch him, too.  Are all newscasters gay?

8.  George Michael

Remember when we all pretended to be surprised?  Did anyone see Wham?

7.  Clay Aiken

Took this guy forever to come out, didn’t it?

6.  Marc Jacobs

Again, nope.

5.  Ellen Degeneres

4.  Tila Tequila

Maybe I’m a minority, but I thought her show was demeaning even by reality show standards.

3.  Elton John

2.  Perez Hilton

Who in the blue hell is this guy?

1.  Lindsay Lohan

Apparently bi.

     I guess if there’s a point here, it’s that gay people have always been there;  we just don’t know it.  But now that it’s becoming more public, we seem to get upset.  Go figure.

     Small note:  No disrespect to gay people here.  If I’ve been less than politically correct, click the little complaint box on the top right corner of your screen.  (It looks like an ‘X’)  And don’t take it personally.  It’s not anyone in particular… I hate everybody.

    Anderson Cooper came out? And sorry but didn’t know there was a time frame when someone was suppose to come out.

    I can’t believe you didn’t know Doogie’s gay. It’s one of the reasons I enjoy “How I Met Your Mother”, where he’s cast as a skirt-chasing bachelor.
    Yeah, I was surprised about Jodie Foster, although I’d always thought that she SHOULD be gay even when I thought she was wasn’t. Some of the people I didn’t know either.
    And where’s Bo on this list!?

    An interesting list, although I have not heard of some as they must only be famous in the US.

    Blogged on
