Doogie comes out

Wow, it has been an unusually crowded year for male celebrities coming out of the closet. First Lance Bass. Then T.R. Knight. Now Doogie, I mean Neil Patrick Harris. The current "How I Met Your Mother" and former "Doogie Howser, M.D." star (if you're too young to remember Doogie, for the love of God spare me the pain and keep that information to yourself) came out today to People.
"I am happy to dispel any rumors or misconceptions and am quite proud to say that I am a very content gay man living my life to the fullest and feel most fortunate to be working with wonderful people in the business I love."

The actor's statement came after recent reports that his publicist denied a gossip item about his sexuality by saying "He’s not of that persuasion." Looks like the truth really is good medicine. As a side note, when did People become the coming out messenger du jour? Lance, T.R. and Neil all used the magazine to release the big news. Apparently, People is the gayest magazine around. And here I was thinking that title went to Vanity Fair.
