Is Social Media Changing The Way Celebs Come Out?


The days of coming out via Time magazine covers are over. In 2016, celebs are coming out in their own way, and social media is giving them a lot of help. Ellen Page knew her coming out speech for HRC would go viral, and when Charlie Carver decided to come out via Instagram, he knew social media would take his message global. Since coming out via a splashy magazine cover or even a New York Times article would seem dated at this point, we ask you Queerty members: Is Social Media Changing The Way Gay Celebs Come Out?
