#NationalComingOutDay - 17 Stars Who Came Out in 2016

Today is National Coming Out Day and Celebuzz listed 17 celebs who came out this year.

Charlie Carver

Teen Wolf actor Charlie Carver shared the news about his sexuality in January via an emotional two-part Instagram post.

In the first part of his post, Carver revealed: "Over time, this abstract 'knowing' grew and articulated itself through a painful gestation marked by feelings of despair and alienation, ending in a climax of saying three words out loud: 'I am gay'."

Lilly Wachowski

Matrix filmmaker Lilly Wachowski revealed that she is transgender in an essay she penned for the March issue of Windy City Times.

ONTD post

Colton Haynes

In May, Arrow star Colton Haynes revealed more about his sexuality when he responded to a fan's question about his "secret gay past," including his racy modeling photos. Haynes simply responded, "Was it ever a secret?"

Since then, Haynes addressed the most important part of his coming out. "I'm happier than I've ever been, and healthier than I've ever been, and that's what I care about," said Haynes.


Mara Wilson

Matilda star Mara Wilson tweeted about her emotions along with an announcement about her sexuality after hearing the news of the shootings at Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, Florida.

In a tweet, Wilson shared that the "LGBTQ community has always felt like home, especially a few years later when I, uh, learned something about myself."

Wilson followed up that tweet with her announcement that she's "embraced the Bi/Queer label lately."

ONTD post

Aubrey Plaza

Aubrey Plaza opened up about her sexuality in a July interview with Advocate, revealing she is bisexual.

The Parks and Recreation actress simply stated, "I fall in love with girls and guys. I can't help it."
