Today is Valentine’s Day, when couples celebrate their love and us singles try to hold back the dry heaves. (We kid, we kid!)
But if you’ve been unlucky in love lately, you might have a shot at an A-List gay: Out.com has just released its third annual list of the 100 most eligible bachelors in queerdom.
Guys who made the list include screenwriter Dustin Lance Black, statistician Nate Silver, actors Chris Colfer and Guillermo Diaz, singer Mika, gossip guru Michael Musto, blogger Arjan Timmermans, rugby pro Gareth Thomas, (right) Congressman Mark Takano, CNN anchor Don Lemon, Vampire Weekend’s Rostam Batmanglij and billionaire Peter Thiel. (Y’know, in case you’re looking for a sugar daddy.)
There are links to each bachelor’s Facebook page, as well, so you can reach out and make a tasteful introduction.
In the years the site has compiled the list it hasn’t always been easy to determine who qualifies: “People always complain to me: ‘He’s not a bachelor, he’s dating my friend,’” Out executive director Jerry Portwood tells Queerty. “But casually dating isn’t the same as being married—and these days, unless a guy is officially partnered or married, he’s still available and, therefore, a ‘bachelor.’”
Portwood adds that, “back in the old days, a ‘confirmed bachelor’ was a euphemism for a gay man—I love that we are somehow re-fashioning the term.”
