Queer Town: Who is Howard Bragman Bringing Out of the Closet?
Ever since blogger Elizabeth Snead reported that public relations guru Howard Bragman is bringing another gay celebrity out of the closet, speculation has swirled on the blogosphere about who it may be.
Here's a tip: Read the 2009 L.A. Weekly cover story "The Secret Lives of Queer Leading Men."
In it, Bragman says a male Hollywood superstar had contacted him, through a manager, about coming out. But that movie star never pulled the trigger.
Bragman also says he's working with a famous musician, who will come out in 2010.

If we were betting people, we'd put our money on the musician.
We don't think it's Johnny Weir, who recently attended the GLAAD Media Awards but has not uttered the magic words "I am gay."
Bragman says Weir has not contacted him, even though the publicist would be a perfect match for the ice skater/TV reality star, if he is gay. Bragman has brought out celebrities and athletes, such as Meredith Baxter and pro basketball players John Amaechi and Sheryl Swoopes.
So if you're trying to pin down who will be the next celebrity coming out of the closet on May 5, we heavily suggest you think music, not TV, film, or sports.
