Michael Arden and Andy Mientus are a couple that could not even be any cuter if they tried. The two met and began to date in 2010. They were so smitten with each other that they stuck together for 6 years. The couple eventually wanted to solidify their relationship and take things to the next level.
Little did the two know that one was already planning to propose to another. While Arden was getting ready to prepare to pop the question, Mientus was doing the same. The couple got married in 2016 and has since been living happily ever after.
Michael Turchin & Lance Bass
When Lance Bass was a member of the boy band N’Sync little did anyone knows that he would be inclined to prefer those whose gender was the same as his. Fast forward many years later, specifically 2006, when he loudly and proudly revealed to People magazine that he is gay.
Now, Lance Bass is happily married to actor and painter Michael Turchin. The two wed in 2014 after three years of dating. They were the first same-sex couple to exchange vows on cable TV via the show, Lance Loves Michael: The Lance Bass Wedding. And the rest, as they say, was history.
Alexandra Hedison & Jodie Foster
When Jodie Foster was a guest in Late Night with David Letterman, the host irreverently implied Foster’s sexuality and how sad it would be that she could never be with a man. However, Jodie Foster thinks otherwise as she is happily married to Alexandra Hedison – a director, artist, and teacher. Meanwhile, Foster is considered as one of this generation’s “greatest actresses.”
Hedison used to be Ellen DeGeneres’ girlfriend. Foster and Hedison wed in 2014 a year after they met. Foster has two kids with her former partner, Cydney Bernard. Her eldest son is reportedly pursuing an acting career while the youngest prefers to stay out of the limelight.
Linda Perry & Sara Gilbert
You may know actress and host Sara Gilbert from her role as Darlene in the sitcom Roseanne. She is also one of the hosts of The Talk – a daytime CBS talk show. Before she publicly announced her sexuality in 2010, Gilbert previously dated her Roseanne co-star Johnny Galecki.
She used to be in a relationship with TV producer Allison Adler but the two amicably separated in 2011. And she was with Linda Perry up until 2019 – a music producer and frontwoman of the band 4 Non Blondes. The two became engaged in 2013 and had a son in 2015 they named Rhodes Emilio Gilbert Perry.
Lauren Blitzer & Chely Wright
Country music singer Chely Wright came out as gay – one of the first country music stars who did – back in 2010 to help erase the stigma of bullying and hate crimes toward members of the LGBTQ community. She also publicly professed the damage caused to her psyche by “lying” and “hiding” about her sexuality. A year later after she came out, she was engaged to Lauren Blitzer – an advocate of LGBTQ rights.
The two eventually got married in 2011 in a Connecticut country estate. The event was officiated by a reverend and rabbi. Two years after their wedding, Chely gave birth to identical twins George Samuel and Everett Joseph.
