At a time when acceptance and inclusion are celebrated more than ever, some influential people have taken bold steps into the spotlight to reveal their true selves. In honor of Pride Month, here's a look at some of the celebrities who have come out as themselves so far in 2024.

Bruce Joel Rubin

81-year-old Bruce Joel Rubin, the well-known screenwriter of the popular film Ghost, revealed the truth in his memoir It's Only a Movie. After half a century of marriage, Rubin admitted that he was completely gay.

Rubin revealed: “I've definitely held back my sexuality. My sex life has always been very internalized. Of course you want an orgasmic life, but I had orgasms with Blanche. She and I had a good sex life. We had a relationship with a guy at our ashram that I liked. She had a private moment with him, and so did I. And I had a few other things going on on the side that I haven't written about because they might embarrass people. It's not like I was dead to this world. But I'm happily gay.”
