Celebs You Probably Didn’t Know Were In Same-Sex Relationships

Love is love, regardless of personal prefference. As society becomes more accepting of the LGBTQ community and begins to understand the intricacies of queer identities, these celebrities have come out of the woodwork to admit that they’ve also questioned themselves at times too. They’ve had to explain over and over again that no, their sexuality isn’t a phase, and no, they aren’t attracted to every person in the world— they just have the potential to be attracted to both men and women. People like Mick Jagger and Hugh Hefner were just experimenting, while others have found a connection and are still with their same-sex partners.

Hugh Hefner

Hugh Hefner is known for always having a busty blonde or two on his arms but even for him, that must have gotten a little old at times. At one point in his life, he took it upon himself to try out a new type. Hefner biographer Steven Watts wrote in Mr. Playboy: Hugh Hefner and the American Dream that Hef was in Chicago one night when he was propositioned by a man and he took up the offer.

In 1999, Hef told The Washington Post, “There was some bisexuality in the heterosexual, swinging part of my life. I was testing the boundaries, just knocking down walls.”
