A person’s “Googlablity” is a modern day popularity contest. Last
year, we began compiling the most Googled gays and lesbians in the U.S.
This year, heightened visibility in the media invited unique results.
This time around, with stricter guidelines, we kept our list limited to
only out people (Sorry Mr. Cooper, maybe next year?). Thanks to hit
television series’ (Three of our top 20 are of Glee fame), world tours,
and self-branded blogs, the list took a turn from last year, and some of
the results even surprised us. Check out who made the list in 2010’s
most Googled gays and lesbians.

In a tight race for first with Adam Lambert, Perez Hilton takes the cake. 2010 has been a big year for Hilton, launching three new blogs, CocoPerez, FitPerez, and TeddyHilton all focused on a more specific market (fashion, fitness & health, and pets). Between the growth of his company, his pledge to stop bullying on Ellen, and revealing Miley’s partying ways, Perez Hilton has landed himself 2010’s most Googled gay.
