It wasn't that long ago that gay celebrities had to go out of their way to hide their sexuality. Either they hooked up with members of the opposite sex just for show, or they remained eternally single and ambiguous about their dating habits. 

Sure, some still do it. But it's amazing how much things have changed. Hell, did anyone even blink when Anderson Cooper came out? Here are 12 of the cutest celebrity same-sex couples.

  • Anderson Cooper & Benjamin Maisani
