It’s always uplifting to see people having the courage to stand by who they are and show the world the best parts of themselves. As difficult or daunting as it can be to make that leap and officially declare one’s sexuality in a public forum, these celebs did it. Take a look at our 15 favorite gay celebrities and what makes them so fabulous.

1. Neil Patrick Harris

He was Doogie back in the early 90s, but he’s done so much since then. Among NPH’s lengthy resume of roles and projects are nine years of great acting as the woman-chasing and very straight Barney Stinson on How I Met Your Mother, work on Broadway as both a director and actor, and being the first openly gay man to host the Academy Awards earlier this year.
