25 Celebrities Who Came Out Loud And Proud.

Happy Pride Month! June is an important month in the LGBT community as it's a time for a celebration of equality. Ever since Proposition 8 was taken down along with the ban of same-sex marriage, people have become more comfortable with sharing their sexual orientation with the public.

It's not easy for a member of the LGBT community to come out. The fear of disapproval will always be present and it's hard overcoming it. And once they do come out for the first time, it doesn't stop there — they have to continually do it for the rest of their life every time they meet someone new. With that said, we've brought you this post today to celebrate celebrities who have publicly come out to the world and couldn't be any prouder.

June is the official month of LGBT Pride.

"Pride" is a time where this community celebrates their sexuality nation-wide. They're in a constant battle for equality everyday so Pride is a time they let their guards down to celebrate life.

June is the official month of LGBT Pride.

Robin Roberts

The American broadcaster celebrated her 100 day-milestone from her blood marrow transplant in 2013. She officially came out to the world in a thank you post she made on Facebook. In the post, she thanked her family, friends, and "long time girlfriend, Amber."

John Amaechi

Amaechi came out after he retired playing basketball professionally, making him the first former openly gay NBA player. When questioned about other players who are still closeted, he said, "There are people for whom their entire world is based around this idea that people will look at them and when they look at them, they are NBA superstars, NBA players. And any change to that would be physiologically devastating. Emotionally devastating, financially devastating."

Brittney Griner

Griner was the very first NCAA basketball player to make 2,000 points and block 500 shots (male or female). The basketball player came out to the world as a lesbian in April of 2013. Almost exactly a year later, she wrote and released a memoir, "In My Skin."
