50 “Then and Now” photos of openly gay celebs — can you recognize them?

Openly gay actors — they grow up so fast. Is that too precious?

Really, it’s the only logical takeaway after perusing these 50 “then and now” photos, which feature some of our favorite out and proud celebs — way back when, when they were chubby-cheeked cherubs; and now, when they’re chiseled bohunks with biceps for days and cheekbones you could slice Provolone on.

    Awe….this list sucks! They missed my boy, Wilson Cruz…arguably the most noticeable, successful and dramatic transformation from child-to-adult star in the business!

    So much for diversity…

    Dumb. Why don’t they use their baby pictures too? Yeah, some celebs have changed but showing them when they were in grade school is 100% meaningless.

    Struggling to meet your daily content quota? Can’t believe some of the shallow shite on this site.

    I actually thought that this was an interesting collection—though I did not know some of them, and some I did not realize are gay.

    From the comments here, there is obviously no pleasing everyone!!!! Time to lighten up a bit, I think!

    There really is no pleasing some queens. SMGDH

    Fun article post, Queerty

    Alan Cumming is bisexual, not openly gay. Can we respect that, please?

    Is Lee Pace openly gay? I’ve looked and while I read about rumors of him dating men in the past I actually haven’t read or seen anything with him saying he was gay outright. If anyone can post a link, it would be appreciated.

    Colton Haynes grew up to be quite the stud! His body and the sensuality. The whole package!
