3 Famous Gay Couples Had a Lot to Celebrate This Week

We all joke that dating another guy for six months (or six weeks) can equal to 6 years in the gay world, but its truly amazing when you see other couples who really go the distance and have something concrete and stellar to celebrate with one another as their time together increases.

Three gay couples, who have found fame in sports, television and more, each had something major to celebrate this week.  Whether it was an anniversary or a birthday, these fantastic men had no problem sharing about their love for one another on social media.

 

 

Queer Eye star Karamo Brown celebrated his partner Ian Jordan's birthday today in a really cute way.  He shared a beautiful photo of the two of them together, with a caption that reads as follows: "Happy birthday to the love of my life @theianjordan! I love you because of your heart, your humor but mostly because you don’t mind serving #GlamourShots realness w/ me anytime I ask. I pray today and this year brings you everything your heart desires. #HBD#40ish #TurnUp.

He also followed that up with a cute picture of him on his Instagram story that echoed what he wrote on his actual post. 

Nate Berkus also had a big reason to celebrate this week, as May 3rd marked the fourth wedding anniversary with his partner and costar on Nate & Jeremiah by Design, Jeremiah Brent

 

 

He shared a photo from their wedding day, with a message that read "Four amazing years, 10 homes, 2 kids, 2 worn out passports. I love you JB." Awe. 

Jeremiah followed suit on the same day, saying "4 years later and life continues to crack open in the most beautiful ways. Home for me will always be by your side, hand-in-hand. Happy Wedding Anniversary."

 

 

And finally we come to Olympic diver Tom Daley and his partner, Oscar winner Dustin Lance Black, who celebrated their one year anniversary two days ago.  Dustin shared a photo of the two of them at their wedding, looking dashing in their tuxedos and being quite intimate with one another.

 

 

Tom's photo was just as intimate, but the caption was a lot shorter yet just as meaningful all at the same time.

'And The Winner Is...' - Five Openly Gay Men Who Have Won Oscar Gold

The 90th Annual Academy Awards will take place live tomorrow night on ABC.  Some of the most iconic and historic names have taken home at least one of these golden statuettes, including Robert DeNiro, Meryl Streep, Bette Davis, Joan Crawford and so on and so forth.

The show also has a major history with the LGBTQ community, as there have been several actors, actresses, producers and behind the scenes professionals who have won Oscar gold over the past ninety years.  Sam Smith, who made waves a couple of years ago when he wrongfully thought that he was the first openly gay man to win an Oscar, had a lot of learning to do as there have been plenty before him that have won as well.

In preparation for tomorrow night's Oscars, let's take a look at five openly gay men who have won this coveted award in the past.
