Coming Out in the Spotlight: What it means to be an LGBTQ Celebrity.

Coming out is such a scary moment for all LGBTQ people, the fear of being rejected by the ones you love and being attacked by everyone else around you is so strong that sometimes it‘s even hard to breathe. Now imagine being a celebrity and coming out publicly, that must be one scary thing knowing how many crazies with an opinion are out there. Fortunately, more often than not there‘s a bright side which in this case would be the power of being honest with yourself and unapologetic about who you truly are. To prove a point here is 15 Latinx LGBTQ celebrities who glow up after coming out.

Before being the DILF he is today, Ricky was known to be sort of a Ladies Man. He dated celebs like Rebeca de Alba, Alessandra Ambrosio, and pro-tennis player Gabriela Sabatini. After some time in the spotlight, rumors were started about his sexuality but due to fear of being rejected by his fans and being adviced by his family and friends not to come out as it could destroy his career, he decided to keep his private life to himself.
