Nikki Blonsky Comes Out as Gay with the Help of Diana Ross - Watch.
Nikki Blonsky is out and proud!
The 31-year-old Hairspray actress took to her Tik Tok on Sunday (June 28) to come out as gay. PHOTOS: Check out the latest pics of Nikki Blonsky
“Hi, it’s Nikki Blonsky and I’m coming out! #pride,” Nikki captioned the video while dancing around in her backyard to Diana Ross’ hit song “I’m Coming Out.”
Nikki then took to the comments to write, “It’s incredibly true!!! Thank you so much for the love and support!”
Nikki starred as Tracy Turnblad in the 2007 film version of Hairspray.
If you missed it, Nikki recently took part in the “Baltimore Challenge” on TikTok, in which people are lip syncing to her version of the musical’s opening number “Good Morning Baltimore.”

So both she AND Zac Efron are gay.
That makes Nikki, Zac, John Travolta, Queen Latifah, and James Marsden.
Hairspray had the gayest cast ever!

I love her hair.
Funny how it's so hard to tell with females, as to who is gay or bi or not.
They all seem the same to me, except for butch lesbians who are (of course) pretty obvious.

I can't keep her and Marissa Jaret Winokur straight (pun not intended). Even reading this, I was thinking I hadn't see Nikki Blonsky since she was on 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' in the doctor's office ep. But that was MJW.

Didn't her career tank because her Dad managed her and was an asshole and she had a huge ego after Hairspray? She did a tv movie called Queen Size and then nothing else.

I'm thinking the use of "boo thang" by the author of that e!online article is what finally ended her career.

Coming out has become irrelevant. Too many straight girls followed a trendy bandwagon to come out as bi or queer.

She was the star of an ABC Family show about 10 years ago and was came off as absolutely insufferable. Not sure if it was her or her character, but I wasn't surprised when the show was canceled after only 1 season.

She always blames her size for her stalled career when really it's...her. She expected after Hairspray Hollywood was going to offer itself up, but she didn't even move to LA. You can't build a career from Mommy and Daddy's house on Long Island...where I'm pretty sure she STILL lives. If you want a career, and ESPECIALLY if you're not a classic beauty, you have to be fucking aggressive.

I hate musicals and I was completely against the musical and the film adaptation of the musical. But there was as a free screening before its release and it was filled with theatre heads who knew all the words, and the energy was infectious. I hate musicals but I ended up seeing Hairspray: The Movie Musical six times in the theaters.

The way she keeps lying to try to cover up the fact she's had to work regular jobs is fucking odd and sad. She claims she wasn't sweeping hair at a salon, she was just "being goofy and posing with a broom."
She was later found working at a shoe store and once again, denied she was working there and claimed she was just at the shoe store shopping.
Bitch, who are you kidding? Anyone can look at your resume and see that you're not working steadily.
Remember the former Cosby Show actor who was photographed and shamed by some asshole after he was discovered working as a grocery store? He just came out and admitted that it was him and he got the job because he had trouble finding work. The entire Internet rallied around him and supported him.
Nikki's attitude and Cosby actor's attitude shows the difference in views that millenials vs. older people have towards work.

MS) I read an interview once where Alfonso Ribiero said something like, “people didn’t forget about the Tap Dance Kid until Fresh Prince”. Is there any role that you think can be bigger than Hairspray was for you?
NB) I think there are roles coming up in my career that can be as grand as Tracy for me and make as important of an impact on people and myself so I’m excited to play them and explore new sides of the craft and myself.
MS) Does Hairspray ever “bore” you? Do you ever get tired of singing the songs?
NB) I can honestly say I never tire of the songs. I sing them daily in my cameos and they make me light up and make me move just as much now as they did back then. The music of hairspray is the driving force behind the movie and I’m so honored every day that I get to belt out “Good Morning Baltimore” or any of the amazing tunes that make up the soundtrack.
MS) I understand you’re on Long Island. Can you live in a sense of anonymity or do you constantly get recognized?
NB) Living on Long Island I do get some privacy and it’s nice. I can sometimes go unrecognized but then there are days where I’m just going to the corner store and then I get DMs from fans asking if I was just there because someone recognized me. It’s a good balance between getting recognized and going under the radar.

"As I got older, I tended to follow my friends’ lead. So when they started to have crushes on boys, I did too, and we would giggle about them together after our softball games. In reality, the only love affair I was truly involved in started when I saw “Hairspray” for the first time at age 15. I didn’t go on dates, I just practiced my vocal training and rehearsed every role I could get my hands on in our school shows. I was focused on making acting and singing my career, so I didn’t concentrate on dating like my friends did. In fact, I didn’t have my first kiss until I was on the set of “Hairspray,” my first movie, when I was 17. It was then that I decided to let myself experience dating, and I did so on and off throughout my 20s. But it definitely was not the main focus of my life ― living out my dreams was.
I knew coming out publicly would be different for me than it was for many others because I was aware that whenever it finally happened, it would be widely talked about. Because of this, I didn’t know exactly how I’d do it ― I just knew I wanted to do it. The feeling continued to grow stronger and stronger this past year, so I got my creative team together and told them that I was ready to do it, and they couldn’t have been more supportive. We came up with several ideas that would allow me to say, “It’s Nikki Blonsky from the movie ‘Hairspray’ and I’m gay,” as my Instagram bio read shortly after I came out.
As much as I appreciated the brainstorming that my team and I had done, I always go with my gut and when I feel something and it feels right, I run with it.
For the past 14 years, I’ve been a part of the “Hairspray” family, who instantly accepted me and made me feel at home. I was shown love and support from everyone and it was truly a magical experience. There is only one other community of people other than the “Hairspray” family and my own family and friends that has welcomed me in such a kind and beautiful way, and that is the LGBTQIA family. As the kid in school who was picked last for sports in gym class and sat alone at lunch for many years during elementary school, I never felt like I fit in or belonged anywhere until I found theater. And it wasn’t until now, after coming out, that I truly feel accepted for all that I am."
