Celebrity coming outs in 2014 - a welcome change.

I always love the "coming out" of celebrities. That gives more visibility to the gay community and gives more confidence to the gay youth. So thought of compiling the famous personalities who "came out" in 2014. Check them out.

Sam Smith: the man with that gorgeous voice and hits like "stay with me" and "I am not the only one"  in his kitty. Worthy addition to the community.


Sports is one area where you won't find much candidates belonging to gay community. There may be enough gay men among sport stars, but no body comes out. Oops, this year we had many. Derrick Gordon (basketball player), Tom Luchsinger (Olympic hopeful, swimmer), Liam Davis, (pro soccer), Matt Llano (professional long distance runner), Thomas Hitzlsperger (pro soccer) Well done!


Well, the biggest sport star was Ian Thorpe, Olympic swimmer. Ah, I just love him!!

Then came some from business and politics -  Edgars Rinkēvičs, Latvia's foreign minister. Not bad at all.  Tim Cook, CEO of Apple, came out with a very relevant coming out commentary. Loved it.

He said, “While I have never denied my sexuality, I haven’t publicly acknowledged it either, until now,” Cook wrote in an essay for Bloomberg BusinessWeek. “So let me be clear: I’m proud to be gay, and I consider being gay among the greatest gifts God has given me."
Others from show business...Lee Ryan (boy band member of the band Blue), Vicky Beeching (singer-songwriter), Andreja Pejic (Model), Patricia Yurena (Miss Spain 2008 and 2013), Ellen Page (Actress, X-Men: Days of Future Past)

Jaw dropping National Dance Team from Georgia - Sukhisvili

Dance is a celebration of human spirit; it can inflict happiness, sadness or for that matter, any emotion. With the help of right music, dance can act as a powerful weapon to bring out change in people. Dance is a liberating experience and we can see that in a dancer's face. Dance may be simple or complex, performed singly, as duo or in groups. There are multitudes of dance forms, prevalent in different countries with varied rules and regulations or sometimes without any rules too. Irrespective of all these, dance forms cross barriers and geographical boundaries, it will carry you away even if you don't know the language or the rules. That is the charm of dance. An adept dancer transforms into you; in your mind, you replaces him with yourself. It feels like you are dancing there.


I recently stumbled upon this wonderful, jaw dropping rehearsal performance by Georgian National Ballet team (Sukhishvili). There are many videos of their performances in Youtube. All of them are won…
