Chris Colfer, Adam Lambert and Neil Patrick Harris have been ranked the top gay and bisexual male celebrities.

The annual list is compiled by gay male entertainment website

“By highlighting which out gay and bisexual men our readers most admire, we celebrate not just those men, but how far the entire gay community has come,” the editors wrote in announcing the results of their survey. “After all, it wasn't so long ago that finding 50 out gay and bisexual men for a list like this would have been pretty hard to do.”

“Actually, almost everyone on the list could be called a gay rights activist, and not just because they have all made the decision to be out. Rather, almost every man in the top fifty is someone who has done something to further the cause for gay equality.”

Taking the number 3 spot is actor Neil Patrick Harris, who stars in the CBS comedy How I Met Your Mother. Harris and his partner, actor and celebrity chef David Burtka, recently became gay dads.

Rocker Adam Lambert is ranked in the number two spot.

Topping the list at number one is actor Chris Colfer. Colfer plays Kurt Hummel, a gay student at McKinley High on the Fox musical-comedy Glee.
