From Lindsay Lohan to Clay Aiken

 - Sep 25, 2008
Is the Hollywood glass closet finally breaking? This week alone, Lindsay Lohan confirmed her lesbian relationship with Samantha Ronson and Clay Aiken came out as a gay man in grand style on the cover of People magazine. This is an indication that things are changing in Hollywood when it comes to hiding one’s sexuality.

With Katy Perry’s "I Kissed a Girl" topping the charts for most of the summer, maybe Lindsay Lohan and Clay Aiken sensed that America is finally ready for their mainstream stars to come out without fearing the end of their careers.

We have come a long way from the days when Ellen DeGeners came out on the cover of Time magazine. Hopefully this is just the beginning, and we’ll see more and more celebrities come out and be able to live their life proudly with the ones they love.

If you have doubts about this, do not take my word for it, check out this cluster of 12 Hollywood and celebrity coming out trends.
