Given the stigma associated with portraying androgynous content on the big screen, it makes sense that celebrities who identify as androgynous haven’t always been able to talk openly about their status. Not so long ago, the entertainment industry took every conceivable measure to conceal the sexual orientation of its biggest stars. Consider the Old Hollywood star Rock Hudson, whose homosexuality was a closely-kept secret while he was at the height of his fame. And so are many other celebrities.
As society has become more and more developed, the prejudice against those belonging to the androgynous community has gradually narrowed. It has even become popular in the film industry. Celebrities are breaking down barriers with their powerful visibility and showing the world that they are able to be who they are and successful at whatever they wish to do. Let’s dive into the list of shocking celebrities you might not have known as androgynes. Scroll down for more details!
