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:

The Big Bang Theory star Jim Parsons reveals that he is gay and in a long-term relationship in a recent interview with the New York Times.

The Times, interviewing Parsons about his Broadway career, mentioned that he is gay and in a 10-year relationship, but did not elaborate.

The news is not exactly a surprise: Parsons thanked his presumed partner, Todd Spiewak, at the 2010 Emmys when he won for lead actor.

Mostly, the actor spoke about his role Elwood P. Dowd in Broadway's Harvey.

While best known for Sheldon's classic Big Bang Theory quotes, Parsons praised Dowd as a character desiring to "connect with other people."

Parsons, 39, continued, saying, "The jump-out-of-bed happiness I feel transcends any nerves about taking on a history-laden role."

Elwood P. Dowd was most famously played by Jimmy Stewart in the 1944 film version of the play. Jim will no doubt do it justice.
