Wave the rainbow flag high in the sky! June is National Pride Month so we’ve rounded up all the A-listers who came out as part of the LGBTQ community in 2021.
Stars like Demi Lovato, Colton Underwood and many more announced this year that they were part of the pride community, and they couldn’t be prouder! These celebrities decided to be true to themselves and be open about their identities.
While many celebs such Lili Reinhart and Elliot Page came out in 2020, this year is no different, with many stars announcing that they were out and proud!
Lili, 24, announced in June 2020 via an Instagram post that she was bisexual. “Although I’ve never announced it publicly before, I’m a proud bisexual woman,” the Riverdale star wrote at the time.
The Cleveland native further elaborated on her decision to speak publicly in an interview with GLAAD’s LGBTQ&A podcast. “I’ve wanted people to know that I am bisexual, but I’ve never felt that there was a right time to do it. I was afraid of coming out,” Lili said. “I didn’t want people to tell me that I was lying to get attention or something. And so I just kept my mouth shut. I also I’ve told people in the past and they’ve told me, ‘Oh, it’s a phase.’ And I’m like, ‘OK, great, thanks.’ So that’s discouraging, obviously.”
In December 2020, Elliot, 34, made the important decision to announce that he was transgender. “I feel overwhelming gratitude for the incredible people who have supported me along this journey,” he wrote on Instagram. “I can’t begin to express how remarkable it feels to finally love who I am enough to pursue my authentic self. I’ve been endlessly inspired by so many in the trans community … I want to share with you that I am trans, my pronouns are he/they, and my name is Elliot.”
The X-Men actor also made history in March 2021 when he became the first transgender man to appear on the cover of Time magazine.
