8 Celebrities Who Actually Helped a Fan Come Out as LGBTQ+

By  | 

In today’s society, being a part of the LGBTQ+ community can actually be pretty special. Now more than ever before, people have become a lot more accepting of those who don’t identify as part of the sexual and gender binaries — and, more importantly, members of the community feel they are supported by those around them.

That’s why a lot of people enlist others to help them through it. But for these lucky fans, it wasn’t just anyone who helped them out — it was their own idol! Though not all queer themselves, these artists have shown their support for the community by being there for their fans’ biggest moments.
