David Hyde Pierce
Actor David Hyde Pierce came out in May 2009 while a guest on "The View." Pierce was angered over the California Supreme Court's decision to overturn Prop. 8 and opened up on his under-the-radar marriage to his longtime partner, Brian Hargrove (pictured). "We got married very quietly last Oct. 24 and thought that was fine, and then suddenly the state of California said, 'No, it's not.' What we thought was sort of a private, personal decision turned out not to be," Pierce said on the show. —XFINITY Entertainment Staff (Photo by Scott Wintrow/Getty Images)
