4. Michael Angelakos
Passion Pit’s Michael Angelakos is gay. It’s one of the big revelation that the front-man revealed in an interview with author Bret Easton Ellis during his podcast, B.E.E. During the discussion, Michael spoke in-depth about music and mental illness and the bombshell happened somewhere mid-discussion. “When this was all happening recently, finally, I just decided it might be best to talk about it here. I don’t really know what happened, but it’s just one of those gut feelings. It’s the same gut feeling I had when I said, OK, I kind of just need to talk to people about the fact that I am. I’m gay. And that’s it. It just has to happen. This was exactly the type of situation where I don’t feel like I’m being threatened,” he said.
3. Matt Dallas
He played the infamous belly button-less guy on Kyle XY, and we have to admit that he did an amazing job. We also shed a little tear when he came out and announced his engagement to his boyfriend in 2013
