Quick! What do Angelina Jolie, Kanye West, Nathan Lane, and Cynthia Nixon have in common? They’ve all made Out magazine’s Out 100, a list of gay men and women (and their straight allies) who’ve done something noteworthy in 2005. Other entertainers being lauded by the magazine include Ryan Murphy and Marc Cherry (creators of Nip/Tuck and Desperate Housewives, respectively), singers Rufus Wainwright, Linda Perry, Lesley Gore and Melissa Etheridge, and actors Nathan Lane, Cherry Jones, and Arrested Development’s Portia de Rossi, as well as cover models Will Wikle (of Big Brother), decorator Nate Berkus (of Oprah fame), and Sharon Stone.
My only question? Where’s Tyra Banks, whose daytime talker and primetime America’s Next Top Model are two of the biggest, gayest, fiercest parties on television?
