    Why don't more queer celebrities come out? Even though we still deal with homophobia everyday, I think that the overall climate has changed dramatically in the past decade. I'd love to see people like Kevin Spacey, Gina Gershon, Queen Latifah, Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, George Eads, Jorja Fox, Evangeline Lilly, etc etc come out. Some of them go as far as to beard themselves or lie during interviews. What's the point? Why are they so afraid? Would their careers really be damaged if they did, or is it a case of any press is good press?

    in all truth it would probably not effect them personally to much, cause they are rich and (semi)-famous... but the industry as a whole might be hurt. When theaters won't show harry potter because they think it supports and advocates witchcraft, don't put it past more ppl to do the same thing to movies with outed actors because ppl are stupid in general...

    pluss when u are always in the spotlight you become alot more self concious about what other ppl think (i would assume) and hence more anxiety about coming out...

    P.S. did Vin out himself... cause he is hot!

    Yes, I think it would damage their career. I know we need it and many of us want them to come out because we look up to celebrities, and they set society (in a way). They influence others but as much as we want them to come out, we can't force anyone (well stupid hollywood gossip people have tried & claimed). Its a private decision. When they're ready, they'll say something.

    It's all of a matter of coming out at the "right time". Take a look at Lance bass for example. he wasn't pushed to come out, he wanted to wait and didn't wanna come out in his peak of his music career (N'sync) cause he feared it'd hurt the whole entire group (i think i wouldn't.. it'd just make people more supportive), and he felt 100% comfortable with his sexuality. So basically the moment, he felt ready & confident.. he came out. and that's what counts. Congrats lance! (i suspected it in the past.. how about you guys? heh)

    by the way.. whats this talk of Vin disel coming out? i haven't heard anything! lemme know people... im guessing its a rumor?

    Lance came out because he was going to be outed by some magazine. He decided it would be pretinent to do it himself, and came out. It wasn't the "right time" or anything like that, he was psuedo-forced out. I am glad he came out though... wish it could have been on better terms though.

    Obviously Vin Diesel isn't out to the mainstream public.

    Didn't Perez Hilton try outting lance too? cause that guy's cruel for outing people. It's just a downright, disrespectful thing to do. All the reliable sources i got were from watching reichen talk about his bf's outing on some talk show, and lance himself on E entertainment (or was it E-extra), and these links

    it doesnt matter though... the thing that matters is that he's happy. One thing i find surprising is, he predicts N'sync will come back together sometime in the future. N'sync going popular again? Hmm.. that'd be quite something, wouldn't it?
