Someday, the following list will not be necessary.

Someday, celebrities will not need to make any sort of official announcement regarding their sexuality because, quite simply, no one will care and society will be fully accepting of all orientations.

But that day hasn't arrived yet, for reasons explained so eloquently by Ellen Page when she came out as a lesbian on Friday:

Perhaps these stars can make a difference. Maybe they can positively influence others struggling with their sexual identity, using their public platform to push for tolerance.

So, with all that in mind, we join many in Hollywood in saluting Page and other famous folks who are very out and awfully proud:

Ellen Page made a major announcement in early 2014: She's gay. We applaud her for it.

Former Sex and the City star Cynthia Nixon is now a married woman.

The actress exchanged vows over the weekend with Christine Marinoni, the woman to whom she got engaged three years ago during a rally to support same-sex marriage in New York. A bill allowing for just that was passed in the summer of 2011.

Confirms Nixon's rep to People:

"On May 27, 2012, Cynthia Nixon and her girlfriend, Christine Marinoni, were legally married in the state of New York. Nixon wore a custom dress by Carolina Herrera."

Nixon - who has two children from a previous relationship and one with Marinoni, an education activist - created a stir earlier this year when she said homosexuality is a choice. She then went on to amend the statement and explain she was only referring to her own experience.

Cynthia Nixon is trying to dig herself out of the hole she created with comments last week to The New York Times.

A few days after stating that, for her, homosexuality is a choice and that she did does care for the term "bisexual," the former Sex and the City star has given a new interview to The Advocate. In it, she clarifies that her initial statements referred solely her story and added:

"I believe we all have different ways we came to the gay community and we can't and shouldn't be pigeon-holed into one cultural narrative which can be uninclusive and disempowering. However, to the extent that anyone wishes to interpret my words in a strictly legal context I would like to clarify:

"While I don't often use the word, the technically precise term for my orientation is bisexual. I believe bisexuality is not a choice, it is a fact. What I have 'chosen' is to be in a gay relationship."

Following Cynthia Nixon's declaration that homosexuality - at least in her case - is a choice, the reaction within the gay community has been strong, swift and mixed.

The harshest rebuke of the Sex and the City star has likely come from celebrity chef Cat Cora, who appeared yesterday on The Talk and said:

"I'm gay, and I was born this way," adding of Nixon's view and how it could impact others: "I really feel like it was dangerous and irresponsible of Cynthia, especially in this environment today when so many young people are taking their lives."

Continued Cora, making a plea to the actress who is currently starring on Broadway:

"I know growing up as a young gay person how much you hate yourself, how much you already think you're different. And for someone to say, ‘It's a choice, you can be this way or that way,' I think it's dangerous and I ask Cynthia to please, reach out to the community and say - to all the people who do hate themselves right now, all the young kids who are impressionable - to say, ‘You're OK, take it one day at a time, it gets better.'"

Nixon has been in relationships with both men and women, but dismisses the classification of "bisexual."

Cynthia Nixon finds herself in a bit of trouble within the gay community.

The actress - best known for her role as Miranda on Sex and the City, and in a committed relationship with Christine Marinoni - is profiled this week in The New York Times and tells the newspaper:

“I gave a speech recently, an empowerment speech to a gay audience, and it included the line ‘I’ve been straight and I’ve been gay, and gay is better.’ And they tried to get me to change it, because they said it implies that homosexuality can be a choice. And for me, it is a choice."

Cynthia Nixon has shaved her head for a role in a Broadway play. But that's not why the actress is making headlines.

Nixon made these comments around the same time Washington became the seventh state to legalize gay marriage, and she doesn't see her viewpoint as contrasting with the stance of many activists.

“A certain section of our community is very concerned that it not be seen as a choice, because if it’s a choice, then we could opt out," the actress says. "I say it doesn’t matter if we flew here or we swam here, it matters that we are here and we are one group and let us stop trying to make a litmus test for who is considered gay and who is not.

"I am very annoyed about this issue. Why can’t it be a choice? Why is that any less legitimate? It seems we’re just ceding this point to bigots who are demanding it, and I don’t think that they should define the terms of the debate."

What do you think of Nixon's comments?

On the surface, Megan Fox and Cynthia Nixon have nothing in common.

The former just got booted from a major franchise (Transformers), while the latter is currently starring in the sequel of another (Sex and the City).

Also, Nixon is a lesbian, while most men would disown their own parents for one look at Fox naked.

But these actresses do share a taste in fashion, as evidenced below. See if this outfit is available in our THG Style Store and share your thoughts on it below...

Look out, New York! Alex Rodriguez is on the prowl!

Just kidding. The once embattled Yankee slugger has been staying out of the papers of late, seemingly content to be banging home runs and wife Cynthia.

Tokyo Premiere

Speaking of Cynthias, Cynthia Nixon and her Sex and the City cohorts are back and in full effect! The fearsome foursome that took the Big Apple by storm on HBO for far too many years is now coming to the big screen!

Below, Kristin Davis, Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kim Cattrall film a scene for the Sex and the City movie on location in New York City.

Movie theaters had better get ready for some sex. And the city.

Personally, we don't really care about this movie. Don't get us wrong, we laugh at the occasional Sex and the City quotes that our interns pull out of nowhere. We just don't see the appeal of the big screen adaptation. But that's just us.

We'd rather see Sex, Drugs and the Damaged Kids: The Britney Spears Story.
