    In this article I am going to run through a list of people known primarily as actors, who happen also to be gay, but not pornographic actors, and pick out those ones who I perceive as "famous".

    Of course the most famous gay actors were Dirk Bogarde, Raymond Burr, Richard Chamberlain, Graham Chapman, Noël Coward, Rupert Everett, William Haines, Rock Hudson, Tab Hunter, Tommy Kirk, Roddy McDowall, Ian McKellen, Ramón Novarro, and Cesar Romero I'm sure some of the other gay actors below would like to be in this most famous list, but they just haven't quite made the cut yet.

     Harry Andrews Dirk Bogarde Jim J. Bullock Raymond Burr
     Richard Chamberlain Graham Chapman James Coco Chris Colfer
     Noël Coward Quentin Crisp Divine (actor) Robert Drivas
     Julian Eltinge Rupert Everett

      Harvey Fierstein John Fleck John Fraser
     Peter Frechette J. E. Freeman Michael French Leonard Frey
     Stephen Fry John Gielgud John Glover Jason Gould
     Charles Gray Ralph Graves William Haines Neil Patrick Harris
     Nigel Hawthorne Sean Hayes Robert Helpmann Frankie Howerd
     Rock Hudson
     Tab Hunter John Inman Derek Jacobi

    what's about James Dean ?

    Kalle Schwarz - 22 Jan 2011

    don't know .
    I think sexuality is like language .
    every child is born with the ability to learn a language. but the language itself is depending on chance.

    I think the jury is still out on James Dean. Was he gay? Was he bi? Was he just weird?
