Today, celebrities can come out without fearing for their careers or reputation. In fact, many celebrities choose to come out as LGBT because they know it will help make other people in the LGBT community feel more accepted. Sadly, however, this hasn’t always been the case.
With so many celebrities coming out as LGBT these days, a lot of people assume that it’s some sort of “trend.” However, this couldn’t be further from the case! Historical evidence shows that LGBT people have existed as long as humanity itself has existed! The only difference is that, back in the day, LGBT people were treated so horribly that they were afraid to come out.
During the Golden Age of Hollywood, reputation was everything to celebrities. One slip-up, and you could lose your career in the blink of an eye. Drug addiction, alcohol abuse, and affairs could all greatly harm a celebrity’s career. Something that was sure to ruin a career, however, was whether or not a celebrity was part of the LGBT community.
If word got out that a celebrity was not heterosexual, they would be immediately shunned by the film and television industry, and fans would be horrified at the knowledge. As a result, many celebrities long ago went to very extreme lengths to hide their identity. Some would even go so far as to marry someone of the opposite sex just for appearances! Sadly, LGBT communities spent their whole lives in fear that someone would discover their secret, because they knew that, should someone find out, their career would be ruined forever. As a result, there are a lot of celebrities from the Golden Age of Hollywood who you definitely didn’t know were LGBT!
