Many gay celebrities often lead wild, glamorous lifestyles that the rest of us can only dream of. We love to live vicariously through them and try to experience the world through their eyes. Whether they’re parasailing through the South of France or brunching on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, there’s never a dull moment when you’re a celebrity.
