Was Anderson Cooper the most important figure to step out of the closet this year, or was it rising movie star Matt Bomer?

Did the outing of Emmy winner Jim Parsons, star of the top-rated Big Bang Theory, make the biggest impression—or was it Zach Quinto, star of Star Trek, Heroes and American Horror Story?

Or was it someone else? Well, now’s you chance to decide!

Cast your vote for Biggest Closet-Door Bust-Down in the 2012 Queerties, where we’re honoring the best (and occasionally worst) in politics, entertainment, sports, viral videos, eye candy and more.

And all the winners are chosen by you, the Queerty readers!

VOTING IN THE QUEERTIES IS EASY: Just head over to the ballot page and click on your favorite nominees. We promise it’s a lot easier than voting in the November elections—and we’ve got sexier candidates, too.

You can come back and vote once every day until the contest closes on November 20, 2012, at midnight Eastern.
