Just like his daddies! Sir Elton John and David Furnish's son Zachary took centre stage at their Oscars party
Once; I had shared the appreciation for all talented people; who form our public culture and life modeling.. Then I discovered that many of them are member of the GLB community (Gay, Lesbian and Bisexual).. Many of them are shamelessly well know to public media.. Many of them have enthusiastic audiences and fans; whom through they contribute in shaping the human civilization.. Despite how controversial the GLBT-Rights matter is; I maintain my simple religious beliefs about it.. Meanwhile, I have my own intellectual vision and verdict on it..
The true talent is a divine gift; which should (at least) compliment to both "normal behavior and code of decency.." Despite the luxurious and meaningless philosophies, within hearts and minds of the peoples’ majority; clear comprehension is commonly agreed on both fundamentals and substances of life.. Controversies on GLBT definitions and rights are intellectual fantasies supported by beneficiary groups; who none of them is a GLBT affiliate..!!
As a Muslim, there is a great contradiction between my righteous beliefs and those celebrities..!!
Understanding the debates on psychology, adoption, and civil rights, the question which no one dares to answer: How many “normal & stable” persons seek spouses from their own gender..?
Oprah Winfrey popularized the tabloid talk show genre which, according to a Yale study, allowed gays to become mainstream

On Wikipedia, as usual, there is a comperhensive list of GLB personalities..
This is a partial list of confirmed famous people who were or are gay, lesbian or bisexual. Famous people who are simply rumored to be gay, lesbian or bisexual, are not listed. The historical concept and definition of sexual orientation varies and has changed greatly over time; for example the word "gay" wasn't used to describe sexual orientation until the mid 20th century. A number of different classification schemes have been used to describe sexual orientation since the mid-19th century, and scholars have often defined the term "sexual orientation" in divergent ways. Indeed, several studies have found that much of the research about sexual orientation has failed to define the term at all, making it difficult to reconcile the results of different studies. However, most definitions include a psychological component (such as the direction of an individual's erotic desire) and/or a behavioural component (which focuses on the sex of the individual's sexual partner/s). Some prefer to simply follow an individual's self-definition or identity. See homosexuality and bisexuality for criteria that have traditionally denoted lesbian, gay and bisexual (LGB) people.
The high prevalence of people from the West on this list may be due to societal attitudes toward homosexuality. The Pew Research Center's 2003 Global Attitudes Survey found that "[p]eople in Africa and the Middle East strongly object to societal acceptance of homosexuality. But there is far greater tolerance for homosexuality in major Latin American countries such as Mexico, Argentina, Bolivia and Brazil. Opinion in Europe is split between West and East. Majorities in every Western European nation surveyed say homosexuality should be accepted by society, while most Russians, Poles and Ukrainians disagree. Americans are divided–a narrow majority (51 percent) believes homosexuality should be accepted, while 42 percent disagree."
Also, an interesting Wiki list on Gay Icons..
A gay icon is a public figure (historical or current) who is embraced by many within lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) communities. Dykon, a portmanteau of the words "dyke" and "icon", has recently entered common lexicon to describe figures particularly iconic to lesbians.
Qualities of a gay icon often include glamour, flamboyance, strength through adversity, and androgyny in presentation. Such icons can be of any sexual orientation or gender; they can be out or not. Although most gay icons have given their support to LGBT social movements, some have expressed opposition – advocating against a perceived "homosexual agenda".
Historical icons are typically elevated to such status because their sexual orientation remains a topic of great debate among historians. Modern gay icons, who are predominantly female entertainers, commonly garner a large following within LGBT communities over the course of their careers. The majority of gay icons fall into one of two categories: the tragic, sometimes martyred figure or the prominent pop culture idol.
