How's the first week of Pride treating you, dear Out readers?

People are coming out for Pride! June is a classic month for people to come out, and we've had some truly exciting coming outs so far this month!

The first celeb who came out was 32-year-old Bridgerton star Jessica Madsen, who came out by making a post saying "In Love with a woman, loud about it and proud about it!"

Many fans ship her character on Bridgerton, Cressida Cowper, with Eloise Bridgerton, so this is exciting news for queer fans of the show!

Madsen isn't the only Netflix star to come out this month! Baby Reindeer breakout Jessica Gunning, who plays the stalker Martha on the show, also publicly came out after being privately out in her personal life since 2022.

Thirdly, pro wrestler "Dirty Bulk" Bronson came out as bisexual on Twitter! Congratulations to these people!

Now, onto the rest of the pop culture news!
