In the 21st century, LGBTQ+ romances are no longer hidden in the shadows and are even represented on TV and in the movies. From fashion designers and models to actors and chefs, queer celebrities are gradually starting to own their identities and share their relationships and partners with the world. Some famous pairings are more than just precious — they inspire queer fans to come to terms with their own queer identities.

However, keeping up with who’s dating who is always a challenge. Let’s take a look at some thriving celebrity LGBTQ+ couples and partnerships in 2020.

Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi

Ellen DeGeneres was one of the first major celebrities to come out as gay on television. She bravely risked her career to live authentically and inspire others to do the same. As much joy as she experiences on her show, she finds the most happiness in her marriage with model Portia de Rossi.

DeGeneres told Good Housekeeping, "Portia understands me completely. In our vows, she recited a quote — ‘It is good to be loved. It is profound to be understood’ — and to me, that’s everything. What ‘I love you’ really means is ‘I understand you’...she loves me for everything that I am."

Kristen Stewart and Dylan Meyer

What young Twilight fan didn't want Kristen Stewart to marry Robert Pattinson? Thankfully, the majority of Stewart's fans were uber supportive when she split from Pattinson and came out as bisexual. Her current girlfriend, Dylan Meyer, is a writer, and Stewart hopes to make Meyer her wife.

"The first time I told her I love her...it was like really late, and we were in some s--tty bar, and her friends were there...they like walked out, and I was just like, 'Oh man, I'm so f--king in love with you,'" Stewart shared on The Howard Stern Show.

Sarah Paulson and Holland Taylor

Actresses Sarah Paulson and Holland Taylor are in a happy, long-term relationship — and they also aren't panicking over their age difference. In a New York Times interview, Paulson shared, "My choices in romantic partners have not been conventional, and, therefore, the idea that it's ‘other’ makes it compelling."

"If my life choices had to be predicted based on what was expected from me from a community...that’s going to make me feel really straitjacketed, and I don’t want to feel that…what I can say absolutely is that I am in love, and that person happens to be Holland Taylor."

Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka's life is a masterpiece of modern queer love.

Troye Sivan and Jacob Bixenman

In 2013, Troye Sivan came out on his popular YouTube channel. He couldn't anticipate how much support he would receive from his fans. Fortunately, he was able to begin living as his whole self, and he found love in the process. His long-term boyfriend is model Jacob Bixenman.

Kesha has never shied away from her bisexuality. When it comes to relationships, she doesn't prefer one gender over the other, nor does she practice monogamy. Currently, she is in a loving, open relationship with Brad Ashenfelter. The polyamorous music star has had multiple girlfriends during her six-year romance with Ashenfelter.

"He’s a sweetheart, but he also lets me be me," she told Out Magazine. "You know, I’ll call him and be like, ‘I had fun tonight, I met a sweet girl, and we had a really good time.’ And he’ll say, ‘Cool, babe, I love you.’ It’s so nice."

Megan Rapinoe and Sue Bird

During the 2019 World Cup, soccer star Megan Rapinoe helped lead the U.S. Women's Soccer Team to victory. Her unapologetic attitude and celebration of her female/queer identity have helped inspire women worldwide.

Robin Roberts and Amber Laign

Newswoman and cancer survivor Robin Roberts knows that life is too short to live in the closet. In 2013, she came out as gay in an emotional Facebook post, in which she thanked her "long time girlfriend, Amber" for supporting her through her many health struggles.

Chella Man is becoming a major figure in the queer community — along with his stunning girlfriend, MaryV Benoit. At 20, the transgender/genderfluid Titans star and artist is a killer advocate for LGBTQ+ issues, deaf culture and the necessity of self-expression. His girlfriend, a photographer, is one of his biggest supporters and greatest inspirations.

Wiley described how she fell in love with Morelli, sharing that it stemmed from "Talking about our journeys. Not even necessarily flirting on set, but on the phone, thousands of miles apart, talking about Who are we? And does this make me a different person? Does this actually make me who I am now? That’s how we fell in love."

Asia Kate Dillon and Corinne Donly

Asia Kate Dillon left an impact on queer Hollywood when they came out as nonbinary. They were able to star as the first nonbinary character in an American television series (Billions). Despite their massive achievements, they spend tons of time hyping up their partner, Corinne Donly.

Lynch told Newsweek that she once thought that gayness "was a disease. I remember hearing the word ‘gay’ and thinking, ‘Oh, my God, I have that.’" Now, the 59-year-old actress is living an authentic, healthy life with Cheyne. The animal advocates own three adorable rescue dogs.

Wanda Sykes and Alex Niedbalski

When comedian Wanda Sykes divorced her husband in 1998, she didn't immediately consider how the right partner might transform her views on love. However, when she saw French designer Alex Niedbalski on a 2006 ferry ride, the stars seemed to align in Sykes' head.

Flash forward to 2019, and McHale and McKenzie are flourishing. While they don't often discuss their relationship, McHale posts plenty of photos of him and his B.F. shopping, adventuring, eating and snuggling in bed together. Do you still think soulmates don't exist?

RuPaul and Georges LeBar

RuPaul is one of the most significant figures in the modern LGBTQ+ community. The drag queen/show host/singer extraordinaire met his future hubby, Georges LeBar, on the dance floor at a since-closed club called The Limelight. The rest was history.

He told Stephen Colbert, "We just didn’t care about the act of it that much...It's been resonantly much more meaningful for me afterward than I ever saw coming...I had been an adult gay person for so long at a time where that wasn’t possible, where life was ‘fine’ for me."

Halsey and Evan Peters

A few years back, Halsey tweeted about wanting to date Evan Peters — and it turned out to be prophetic! Her current boyfriend is none other than Evan Peters. They seem to have a sweet, silly, solid relationship. Still, Halsey doesn't want her bisexual identity to be erased.

At the 2018 GLAAD awards, she shared, "I'm a young, bisexual woman...I've spent a large part of my life trying to validate myself...trying to prove that who I love and how I feel is not a phase; it's not part of some confusion that's going to change or could be manipulated."

George Takei and Brad Altman

Star Trek actor George Takei and his producer husband, Brad Altman, first met at a gay Los Angeles running club, unaware that they were the loves of one another's lives. At the time, Takei was involved with LGBTQ+ organizations but was not out publicly. However, he knew he was in love with Altman early on.

The duo ended up quietly dating for 18 years before Takei came out in 2005. They were married with Takei's Star Trek co-stars in attendance in 2008. They were outspoken advocates for the gay community for years before that, particularly related to marriage equality.

Michael Kors and Lance LePere

Designer and Project Runway judge Michael Kors has produced many masterpieces during his career, including the perfect relationship with Lance LePere. The couple met in 1990 when LePere joined Kors' team in France as an intern. Soon, they were grabbing meals together.

So that was in the first week," Daley told The Guardian. They now have one child together, Robert Ray Black-Daley.

Jodie Foster and Alexandra Hedison

Foster is best known for her chilling role in Silence of the Lambs. For the most part, she has successfully veiled her private life. Still, after decades of speculation about her queerness, she owned her identity in a coming-out speech at the Golden Globes. At one point, she even dated Ellen DeGeneres.

Matt Bomer and Simon Halls

Movie star Matt Bomer and Hollywood publicist Simon Halls have been together for more than a decade, and they've killed it as a couple. The duo was married at a small, private wedding in front of friends and family in 2011, but their relationship wasn’t made public until 2012.

This year, in an authentic my-kid-said-this conversation, Kit hilariously told Bomer and Halls that he identifies as straight.

Darren Young and Niccolo Villa

When WWE wrestler Darren Young came out as gay, he was terrified of potential backlash. However, he was desperate to share his boyfriend with the world (and take him to wrestling matches). He and his boyfriend, Niccolo (Nick) Villa, have been dating for almost a decade.

On coming out, Young told People, "There came a point in my life where I just wasn’t happy living a double life." Fortunately, he shared that his co-wrestlers "all embraced me, and that was just shocking...I truly love them." After years of being together, it seems he truly loves Villa, as well.

Cheyenne Jackson and Jason Landau

Glee actor Cheyenne Jackson was so sure he was in love with actor Jason Landau that they tied the knot four short months after announcing their relationship. Their union only blossomed after the wedding, and they have since added two adorable twins to their family, Ethan and Willow.

Jackson told Gays with Kids, "I share my family experience because I am so bombarded with love and joy on a daily basis that it's almost too much for us to take. Seriously. It's so profound...People are invested in our story...It's nothing but love. What could be bad about that?"
