Default Gay metal musicians?

I was thinking, there's a lot of gay musicians out there, but little is mentioned when it comes to metal music, and a lot of people are under the impression that metal music is (among other things) homophobic.

Anyone know of any metal bands with gay members? Or metal bands that have supported gay rights causes/gay pride events/anything like this?

Rob Halford is probably the best known that directly comes to mind.

He's likely the only one that a lot of people can name. Can't be the only one though.

I`m sure there are numerous others (suspected) but as I`ve had a long day I really can`t think of any others at the moment.
