Once again, there are four different covers for OUT magazine’s annual “OUT100″ issue. Pictured below, from left to right:
- Director Lee Daniels (Artist of the Year);
- Actor Jim Parsons (Entertainer of the Year);
- Actor Wentworth Miller (Newsmaker of the Year);
- Marriage equality advocate Edie Windsor (Lifetime honoree).
These great shots and the rest of the online/print portfolio are the work of photographer Danielle Levitt. Meanwhile, here is the reason Miller made news, along with a very powerful interview excerpt:
There have been many powerful coming-out statements, but few as elegant and considered as Miller’s letter this August declining an invitation to be honored at the St. Petersburg International Film Festival. “As someone who has enjoyed visiting Russia in the past and can also claim a degree of Russian ancestry, it would make me happy to say yes. However, as a gay man, I must decline,” Miller wrote to festival director Maria Averbakh.
