Famous Gay Men Who I Wish Were Straight. *Sigh*

I am a professional financial adviser who writes on different topics.


1. Matt Bomer

It's a fact—there are so many gay men who are absolutely stunning. The picture above is celebrity Matt Bomer who is the lead actor on 'White Collar.' It was never a secret that he is a gay man, married with three children, however when 'White Collar' started, women oogled over him (for damn good reason). He didn't go out of his way to mention his husband and family, but he never denied them either and quite frankly, it's none of the media's business. Also, if he doesn't tell his husband.. I won't tell mine..

My point is you don't find good looking guys like this on the straight side. I mean, you get some meterosexuals who know how to dress, shave and how to wear good cologne but these 'retties' often are very narcissistic (I realize I am stereotyping but hey- from what I've seen it's true.) Gay men are often flawless and strong featured, impeccably dressed with fantastic personalities.

Hot Gay Guy Number 1 and Husband

Personally, I think I am much better looking than Matt Bomer's husband but hey- I guess he gets to choose! :)

2. Zachary Quinto


Whether he's playing Spock, or a serial killer on American Horror Story, or any of the countless roles he's played in his career, this guy is hot. He can act like a hot gay guy and I personally like it when he acts like a hot straight guy. He has a very sexy look, and he was raised Italian Catholic so you know he probably knows how to cook.

His sensitivity is obvious—when a gay teen committed suicide, he made the brave decision of coming out stating 'living a gay life without publicly acknowledging it is simply not enough to make any significant contribution to the immense work that lies ahead on the road to complete equality." He's in a relationship with Miles McMillan, another beautiful gay man. Lucky Miles. Sensitive, good looking, talented, giving, my goodness...

3. Cheyenne Jackson


It's terrible to be nothing but the object of sexual lust and attention. Women have dealt with this for so long so I don't really feel guilty as I wipe the drool off my keyboard when looking at this beautiful specimen of a human being.

You might recognize Cheyenne from his work in 'Behind the Candelabra' which was the award winning story of Liberace and his romantic relationships. Or maybe United93, the movie. Really, in my opinion, who cares where you recognize him from, he's more than gorgeous. How many straight guys do we see walking around like this Adonis. He's married and has been divorced and remarried. I guess gay guys have their marital woes as well.

I could spend hours gawking at pictures of this beauty, but alas I know in my heart, there is no chance for me and this beautiful Romeo. If he were straight, I am sure we'd be standing at the alter in no time.. (yeah right)... lol.

4. Mike Doyle


Mike Doyle has been around since HBO's Oz. He's a very talented actor who's played many a part in television, miniseries, and movies. His strong features make his female fans frantic. Wow.. what a hottie.

What do all of these hunkie hotties have in common? They are breathtakingly beautiful (and of course, they all have dark hair, because I chose them and that's my thing), and they are gay. Gay meaning, no woman can ever have a chance to know what it's like to be with their gorgeous selves- it's simply not fair. Mike and I sure would have hooked up by now had he been born straight, but alas, it will never happen.. and that's just something I have to deal with.

5. Rock Hudson

Read More From Reelrundown

Although Rock Hudson tragically died of AIDS, the memory of his immense beauty haunts me to this day. I remember watching movies starring Rock with my mom- the one that comes to mind first is the old Doris Day/Rock Hudson classic 'Pillow Talk.' When he would play the piano, and then play coy with Doris Day, I knew I was in love.

Rock Hudson was blessed with one of the most beautiful faces, smiles, bodies and charm than any other man in the world.

I know for a FACT that if he and I were the same age. I could have turned him.. I just know it...

OK maybe not.. but I would have sure as hell tried the best I could..

What a babe.

6. John Barrowman


This Scotland Hunk is a wonderful theatre and film actor and he's simply beautiful to look at. You might recognize him from various tv shows and those who watched 'Desperate Housewives' may remember his brief role as Patrick Logan in the series. Also, some might know him from 'Torchwood.'

Any sort of bold ideas that I could turn this UK hottie into my straight lover are pretty much out the window as he is a very big advocate for several gay organizations and he puts a lot of time and effort to quashing homophobia. I love his passion and zest for life, and I love his openly gay attitude.

I just wish that I could find a straight guy, with his name, money, smile, body and looks.

A girl can dream.

7. Matt Dallas


Congratulations to Kyle.. err.. Matt.. for just marrying his partner Blue Hamilton (I guess.) Matt decided he wanted to be an actor at an early age when his family took him to see the play 'The Ugly Duckling.'

Ironically, Matt's mother was actually the Good who laid the Golden Egg. His big blue eyes, tumbled and wavy dark hair, and chiseled features makes him yet another gay men that cannot ever be a notch on my bedpost. *Sigh*

Ok, I admit this one is a little young for me. He's about 11 years my junior.. but if men can do it, why not women? Oh yeah.. just not going to happen Wendi...

My oh my.. this guy is fine!

8. MSNBC Anchor Thomas Roberts

A little eye candy for the ladies, Thomas Roberts is a beautiful news anchor who is very open and out in the public. If you google him, you can see several pictures of him in suits (nice), or kissing his husband (jealous), and sometimes, if you get lucky, his naked upper body like the one above (lucky.)

Here's another gay celebrity with the dark hair, beautiful body, gorgeous smile and fantastic personality. I think the female community is getting a little shortchanged here.

This guy can be my anchor any day—that's all I am saying. I'd even grow facial hair and work on strengthening my abs for this beautiful man. Just give me one chance.

Which One is Hottest?

Honorable Mentions

I would not have a very good article if I didn't at least give an honorable mention to a few hotties that didn't make my list.

I love Neil Patrick Harris to death and I thoroughly enjoyed 'How I Met Your Mother' but I don't find him at all handsome. Sorry, but every time I look at him I see Doogie Howser. He gets a mention for being so funny and such a wonderful gay advocate and humanitarian.

The guy from Prison Break, Wentworth Miller, is absolutely beautiful. However- I can't put my finger on why I would choose others over him. Maybe he's a bit too beautiful, but I don't know..

Adam Lambert is totally sexy, entertaining, a fantastic singer and I am sure Freddy Mercury would be proud of him.

Finally, Guillermo Diaz from Scandal would be the last guy I would think of as gay- but he is. And for that, I applaud him. It's gotta be hard to maintain a tough-guy Hollywood persona who loves chicks and murdering people, all the while being a beautiful, sensitive gay male. Then again, maybe he isn't sensitive- but he is beautiful. Yum.

Thanks for reading. If I've offended anyone, most of this is a lighthearted joke. I am not kidding about wishing these men weren't gay though, just so I could marry every one of them..

With all due respect to those of which only read/supported because they found this entertaining, this should not be a thing. This is disrespectful to gay men, especially calling it a "pity" that they are gay because you think they are attractive. Also, promoting this article promotes the objectification of men, and as a feminist I feel that this issue would not be handled the same way if this were about women.

Linda Crampton from British Columbia, Canada on August 12, 2015:

This is an interesting and very entertaining hub, Wendi! Thanks for sharing all the information and descriptions.

Summer LaSalle (author) from USA on August 10, 2015:

@Pam Morrow- I agree- a 'waste' for me! LOL @Healthy Martha I understand, Rock Hudson is the be-end-all!! @temptor John Barrowman is probably the biggest gay advocate of all of the guys I listed but you know what? I didn't know he was gay either! @annart You have good taste!

Thanks for commenting and reading everyone! This was such a fun article to write!


Ann Carr from SW England on August 10, 2015:

I only know 2 of these; Rock Hudson and John Barrowman. Rock Hudson is miles ahead, in fact I find John Barrowman far too big-headed, though quite good-looking! I think Rock Hudson wins because he was such a lovely character.

Great hub.

All the guys are really hot. Love John Barrowman! Didn't know that he is gay, what a pity! Neil Patrick Harris is awesome.

Martha Montour from Phoenix, Arizona on August 10, 2015:

Fun article. I voted for Rock Hudson, probably because I'm 50 something and he just appeals to that old fashioned gal in me. The other hotties are so beautiful, so adorable, and so very young!

Pam Morris from Atlanta Georgia on August 10, 2015:

I love this article and wow you pick a lot of hotties that me as well wish was straight. I can't help but think what a waste. I vote this article as awesome because you did an awesome job writing this article, great job!!!
