Out magazine named three among us as leaving "an indelible mark on queer culture." They are photographer Ryan McGinley, screenwriter-director Dustin Lance Black, and fashion designer Alexander Wang.
"Although all three men have achieved mainstream success, each retains a subversive side," Out writes of its tastemakers. "Black filters LGBT themes for Hollywood audiences. McGinley distills his work through the lens of a pure aesthete, creating art that is as in demand as it is an example of the longing gay gaze. Wang balances his uncanny business acumen with designs that are subtly off-kilter — the outsider artist as budding fashion mogul. They’re also making the first steps in leaving an indelible mark on queer culture."
Read the interview with all three in this month's cover story in Out.
