As part of Ongig’s mission to celebrate all people, I felt inspired to start a list of successful/famous gay people. Not only have the 200+ folks on this list achieved greatness, but many have done it in a world where some people (wrongly) judge them by their sexual orientation.

Methodology & Disclaimer: I focused on listing people who have publicly come out as in the LGBTQIA+ community (e.g., gay, lesbian, bisexual, pansexual, trans+, nonbinary, etc. I list the sources at the bottom of this article. I’m not an expert on famous LGBT people. The list is dynamicI welcome feedback, additions, and edits!

Here’s our list of 200+ of the most famous LGBT people in history.

People Yearn to Know if Someone Famous “is gay”

As part of my research, I was amazed to discover the amount of Google traffic there is of people wondering if a famous person is gay. Here are some examples of the most popular queries:

  • Is Pete Buttigieg gay? (8,700 queries/month)
  • Is Sam Smith gay? (9,400 queries/month)
  • Is Lil Nas X gay? (7,100 queries/month)
  • Is Dan Levy gay? (6,000 queries/month)
  • Is Anderson Cooper gay? (4,800 queries/month)
  • Is Elsa gay? (4,600 queries/month) (yes, this is THE Elsa from the Frozen movie series)
  • Is Don Lemon gay? (queries/month 4,400)
  • Is Kate McKinnon gay? (4,100 queries/month)
  • Is Elton John gay? (3,200 queries/month)

  • Is Lil Nas gay? (1,300 queries/month)
  • Is Mary Trump gay? (1,100 queries/month)
  • Is RuPal Gay (800 queries/month)

The list of gay celebrities with Google queries is MUCH larger if you include the questions about people who are NOT gay (such as Tom Selleck, Harry Styles, Bruno Mars, Tom Holland, and Eminem).

I like to think that many of these searches are from gay people trying to get the courage to come out. That’s another reason to celebrate this list.

Do you know other famous LGBT People I missed?

My list of the most influential gay people is by no means complete. For example, there are many famous people who were gay throughout history, like Alexander the Great, that I found hard to confirm.

Please let me know if you find other LGBT famous people and I will be glad to add them to this growing list! Just ping me at
