Number Two Gay Hero - John Barrowman gay mens reader’s hot 100 list vote John Barrowman as Number Two

We voted for John Barrowman as number one, but after “I’d’ do anything” I think we have seen enough of John for a while.

In the past twelve months, he has released an album, published an autobiography (co-written with his sister), starred in the second season of Torchwood, guest starred on three episodes of Doctor Who, one episode of Hotel Babylon, served as a judge on I’d Do Anything, appeared on Any Dream Will Do, and hosted the children’s program The Kids Are All Right. And those are just the highlights. Okay, some of the highlights.

Additionally, John and his partner, Scott Gill, gave gay fans everywhere an extra little thrill when they appeared together at last year’s London Pride. John actually pulled Scott up on to the stage, giving his hubby (the two entered into a civil partnership back in 2006) a kiss in front of a cheering crowd. An outspoken advocate for gay rights, John has been out professionally for years, and as his list of credits prove, his openness hasn’t held him back.

John moved from #10 on last year’s list all the way up to #2 where Jake Gyllenhaal edged him out in a photo finish. asked John how he felt coming in second to the Brokeback Mountain star. With his usual cheekiness, John told us, “I’m thrilled with the results. Who wouldn’t want to come in behind Jake Gyllenhaal?”

Is it any wonder gay men love him so much?
