List Rules Vote up the most impressive same-sex male power couples - past and present

Slowly, America and the rest of the world has been recognizing the rights of gay men and women to marry, finally giving famous gay couples a chance to step out of the shadows and have the weddings of their dreams. Now that the LGBT community has marriage equality, a new form of power couple has begun to rise through the ranks of the Hollywood elite. Gay Hollywood actors are more comfortable than ever stepping out with their beaus.

The guys on this list are from a multitude of worlds, some of them work in front of the camera, some behind, while others are mavens in the fashion and interior design industries. There’s a good chance you see some of these guys on TV every day, and that’s why they’re on this list of the coolest gay male power couples.

Famous gay men have been in the lime light for decades, and there are rumors that there were famous gay couples going all the way back to the Leonardo DaVinci and Jacopo Saltarelli. Still gay male relationships weren’t truly acknowledged until the 20th century. Some of the gay couples on this list were together long before their relationships were accepted by the general public, and that virtue alone lands them on this list of famous gay people who are in awesome power couples.

In honor of marriage equality, take some time to read about these gay couples and then vote up the most impressive same-sex male power couples!
