6 Lesbian Celebrities Who Dated a Man Before Coming Out

By  | 

When YouTube star Ingrid Nilsen came out as gay in June 2015, many people were shocked. You see, the 27 year old had always been pretty open about her dating history, and even was in a very public relationship with a male YouTuber not long before making the announcement.

But while the beauty guru’s news thew millions for a loop, it definitely wasn’t the first time an assumed straight star who had been with guys in the past came out as homosexual. In fact, Ingrid’s case was simply one of the most recent instances of this happening, with many other famous lesbians dating (and even marrying!!) dudes while they were still figuring out their true identities.
