This summer has been a winner for Civil Rights across the country. Not only was Prop 8 struck down (meaning that gay couples across California were free to get married) but stated that DOMA (Defense Against Marriage Act) was unconstitutional. This meant that the Federal government would recognize marriages between same-sex couples in the 13 states and the District of Columbia that allowed gay marriages. Unfortunately, they did not recognize same-sex marriage in states that do not allow it. Regardless of this, this summer was a time for same-sex couples and their allies to celebrate. That’s why we’re giving you a list of celebrities with gay siblings.

Colin Farrell

Colin Farrell may seem like a badass on screen but he has a softer side to him that you may not know about. He recently announced that he was joining his brother Eamon (who happens to be gay) to stand up against Irish bulling. The two brothers started a prevention campaign that works with Irish
youth to end gay bashing in Ireland.

Anne Hathaway

In the past actress Anne Hathaway has been very vocal about her commitment towards Gay Rights. The subject is very close to her heart as her older brother Michael is gay. In fact, the 31 year-old actress left the Catholic Church because they did not support gay rights.

    it doesn’t matter if your gay, straight, bi, black, white, green,yellow, fat thin old, young tall or small, just get on with your own life, and let everyone else get on with theirs, it shouldn’t even be an issue! and shame on you if it is!!!

    Everyone bleeds red. That doesn’t change if you’re gay, straight, black, white, or asian. Everybody is the same. I don’t see the big issue with any of it ever. Love is love. You should always be comfortable in the skin you’re in and not be ashamed of it. They’re people too!
