Who Will Declare Their Gayness On May 5th?



On May 5, with the handholding of uber-gay publicist Howard Bragman, a celebrity is expected to follow Ricky Martin out of the closet. This person is already booked for a People exclusive, says Zap2It's report, with a string of talk show appearances afterward, including The View (and then probably Joy Behar's show, 'cause that seems fitting). Which begs the question: Who's it gonna be?



That there's such a concrete timeline and strategy in place is evidence this is a well-planned, long-thought-about unveiling. But while the mind swirls about who the soon-to-be out star is going to be it must be noted that this celeb isn't just coming out, he or she is going on a Coming Out Tour.

Which has us thinking all three of those possibilities are DOA; we can't imagine any of them taking their sexuality on the talk show circuit. When and if a star of their caliber comes out, we imagine it'll come in an unrelated interview — Queen Latifah will just casually mention she lives with her partner.
So will this person be young or old? Male or female? A-list or — gasp — C-list?
Meanwhile, Bragman is the maestro behind Sheryl Swoops, Meredith Baxter, and John Amaechi coming out as gay, and Chaz Bono's transitioning announcement. He's also the guy representing Prop 8 supporter and hotelier Doug Manchester, trying to get the gays to love his hotels again. He's a pro at easing gay celebs into this new territory, and he's handsomely rewarded for it. And he is the one pushing the story, revealing at the GLAAD Media Awards that he's got a new candidate that's just two weeks away from swishing it up.

I would love to hear your guesses as to who it is.  I know who it is and I wasn't shocked at their identity, just thankful that they are finally being honest.  Leave your guesses in the comments.

So, it's really happening, huh? I don't have a real idea, but I know who I'd want it to be *cough* Jake *cough* Come on, the Prince of Persia premiere is a few days later, it would certainly guarantee publicity.

Queen Latifah
JC Chasez

But mainly Queen Latifah... there are rumblings that it's a female..... not sure how accurate they are.

Its going to take a popular fairly high-profile person (actor) for people to say "I don't care." So I'm hoping for Jake G. or James F.

Yeah, probably another ho-hum revelation like Kevin Spacey.

It's gonna be some celeb that everyone and their dog already know is gay. Obviously with a new album or a movie just coming out. Boring. I wish it were someone to create a stir, but it will not be.

Alicia Keys? Whitney? Jackles? Zac? Ah the list goes on and on. Unfortunately I think it will be a big yawn like Sean Hays was or Ricky Martin. Probably Weir.

Keifer Sutherland? Frodo Baggins? Lassie? Thurston Howell III? Another site said it would be a woman. Lassie gets my vote. A real lady. A class act.

Johnny plays coy though, and tries to put on airs by not actually admitting he's gay. It's public knowledge, and he doesn't deny it if someone calls him gay, but he still isn't up front with it.

Hmm, cinco de mayo. Think that's a hint?

Hmmm... that double post. Definitely a troll. The tone leaves no doubt but the double post? Now that's the detail I relish on: shaking with insecurity, are you? Must be hard to feel it is your mission in life to save those big guys from the gay rumors -when you don't even have the confidence to submit ONE comment properly... and all it takes is a simple click! I used to know a psycho who did that double post thing all the effing time. And it wasn't me, mind you. I was never that screwed up in the head.

GB, delete me if you must. But do the troll a favor and magically turn the double post into a single mentally stable comment. Please.

hoping it's christina a. from the info it is a musician and i remember several years ago there was buzz about an artist as big as britney that wanted to come out of the closet. then christina came out with her dirrty album and was talking about strip clubs and how woman are way sexier than men etc.
