6 perfect LGBTQ+ celebrity couples we definitely have a crush on
Most of us are looking for someone special, but for these lucky celebrity couples, the search seems to be over. Check out these six aspirational celebrity couples.
1. Gus Kenworthy and Matthew Wilkas
Gus and Matthew met in 2015, in the most modern of ways – on social media. Shortly after Gus came to international fame after competing at the 2018 Winter Olympics, he spilled all the details to People magazine.
Gus says he slid into Matthew’s DMs after following him on Instagram.
“It sounds bizarre, because I’ve said it to people and they were like, “I didn’t know people did that,'” he told People.
“I think it’s kind of commonplace. It’s almost like a dating app or anything because you get a sense of someone, their personality, what they do, who they are, what they look like, whatever. And so it makes it easy to kind of establish a connection early on.”
So, go work your magic on that cutie in your Insta-feed.
2. Janelle Monae and Tessa Thompson
Whether Janelle and Tessa are romantically involved or not, their relationship is making waves. Big, pink, bisexual waves.
Tessa has appeared in two of Janelle’s videos and appears to be her muse for the album, Dirty Computer. The pair are keeping the details of their pairing private, but both are proud to represent women and the LGBTQ community.
“Janelle is somebody who is interested in really empowering not just women, but people to be who they are in the full expression of who they are,” Thompson told Entertainment Tonight.
“People have called Make Me Feel a bisexual anthem, if it makes people feel liberated in their skin and feel closer to who they are than I think we did our job.”
3. Adam Rippon and Jussi-Pekka Kajaala
Adam and Jussi were confirmed as a couple by the sports star in early April 2018.
And what makes us love them more are Adam’s words about dating before meeting Jussi (on Tinder).
“I feel like a lot of people are afraid to be single, but I’ve fully embraced it,” he told People magazine.
“I have really invested a lot of time in thinking about what I want to do. If I can meet a guy who falls into that and is supportive of that, that’s great.”
4. Richard Madden and Brandon Flynn
Richard Madden has recently addressed speculation over his relationship with roommate Brandon Flynn, stating he’s keeping his personal life to himself.
Madden and Flynn have been pictured together on numerous occasions in recent months, prompting speculation they could be an item.
Asked in an interview with The New York Times about if they’re couple, however, Richard dodged the question, replying: ‘I just keep my personal life personal. I never talked about my relationships.’
5. Tom Daley and Dustin Lance-Black
Tom and Dustin have been together since 2013, proving that love can thrive under the media glare. And the glare of the gay media is on every move the Olympics star and his husband make.
During an interview on Radio 5 Live, Dustin discussed parenting with a caller on the show. The listener believed a child needs a strong female presence and that two men couldn’t raise a baby.
“I think I had a very strong mother who raised me incredibly well,” said Dustin.
“Will it be important that our son meet women in his life? Absolutely, absolutely and that will be there.
“It would be wrong to deprive a child of that and frankly bizarre and probably impossible.”
6. Ellen DeGeneres and Portia De Rossi
Ellen and Portia are one of Hollywood’s most important couples. They have been together since 2004.
Ellen and Portia are an example of how an old fashioned relationship can thrive if you meet your soulmate.
“We don’t really need to make it ‘work,'” DeGeneres told E News in 2016.
“We just found the right person. It’s corny, but she’s my soul mate.
“She’s my everything to me and I don’t know what I’d do without her.”
