Jim Parson, Neil Patrick Harris, Matt Bomer, Chris Colfer are among the new low-key celebrity coming outs featured in an Entertainment Weekly cover story.

In The New Art of Coming Out, EW writer Mark Harris looks at the increasingly casual coming outs of gay celebrities.

“Fifteen years ago, when Ellen DeGeneres decided to come out of the closet, it was big news,” Harris writes. “Not just big: It was the cover of Time magazine, and a major story on Oprah, Primetime Live, and CNN. Last month, another star of a popular TV comedy went public with his homosexuality. But the news that The Big Bang Theory's Emmy-winner Jim Parsons is gay was reported with such matter-of-fact understatement that many people's first reaction was a quick Google search to see if maybe he was out already and we'd all just failed to notice.”

Also featured on the cover are Matt Bomer, Neil Patrick Harris, Chris Colfer, Zachary Quinto, Jane Lynch, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Wanda Sykes and Andy Cohen.
