Out and proud actor John Barrowman (La Cage Aux Folles, Sunset Boulevard), who released a candid autobiography, was ranked #1; while Broadway hunk Cheyenne Jackson (Finian's Rainbow, Xanadu), who came out publicly in 2004, was named #2.
The #3 slot went to Neil Patrick Harris (Assassins, "Doogie Howser, M.D.") for recanting a statement made by his publicist that he was "not of that persuasion," and coming out in 2004. Harris later fired the publicist.
The #6 slot was shared by a host of out theatre folk under 30, including former Wicked ensemble member and "American Idol" finalist Adam Lambert, Spring Awakening Tony nominee Jonathan Groff, Toxic Avenger's Nick Rodriguez, A Chorus Line's Nick Adams and Scott Evans. Both Evans and Rodriguez appear in a gay story line on "One Life to Live."
