People of the Year: The Out 100 Picks
In 2011, we were reminded of the extraordinary power of the individual to inspire and motivate by example. Our four cover subjects include the legendary Larry Kramer—whose 1985 play, The Normal Heart, received a stunning revival on Broadway this past season. Australian and Serbo-Croatian model Andrej Pejic, who walks in both men’s and women’s shows (famously closing Jean Paul Gaultier’s Spring 2011 couture show in a fur-trimmed dress). Star of ABC’s Modern Family, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, who kicked off 2011 by introducing his boyfriend of a few months, lawyer Justin Mikita, to the press. And comedian Kathy Griffin, an ally to the LGBT community who, since her Emmy–winning reality show Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List ended, has gone back to stand-up. She’s had three specials on Bravo this year, and a fourth will air in December.
