Halloween Costumes 2011: Gay Costume Ideas (PHOTOS)

First Posted: 10/29/11 02:05 PM ET   Updated: 10/29/11 02:30 PM ET

Halloween, known to many in the LGBT community as "Gay Christmas," is once again upon us, and the streets in gay-friendly neighborhoods nationwide will be creeping and crawling with some of the most outré creations imaginable.

Each year, the most memorable costumes are scary, sexy, funny or some combination thereof. More clever still is when said costume is topical; from the Oscar-winning triumph of "Black Swan" to the repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" to the coming out of a hunky Hollywood actor, there's plenty that happened in 2011 that's ripe for spoofing or appropriate for an homage.

Take a look at some of our picks for gay Halloween costumes:
