Chris Colfer featured in OUT’s annual Out 100 issue

By Greg Hernandez

HollywoodNews.com: It’s always fun when OUT magazine does its annual Out 100 issue. Several years ago, they featured Anderson Cooper and Jodie Foster on the cover which caused some controversy. Even if two people this famous are known to be gay, if they don’t talk about it publicly are they out?

Subsequent years have not had anything like that, thankfully, and who meeds it? As was reinforced when I did my Coming Out Day photo gallery of 100 out celebrities, there are more than enough truly out gay people to celebrate.

Here’s what OUT has to say about this year’s issue: The theme of the 2010 Out 100 portfolio is “celebration.” In a year marked by battles won and lost, high hopes and bitter letdowns, we thought it important to focus on events that might not have been celebrations when they happened, but were pivotal in the evolution of the LGBT cause. So, we asked our honorees to recreate three such moments in recent history — Truman Capote’s Black and White Ball shot by legendary photographer Larry Fink, the Stonewall riots shot by Out 100 veteran Roger Erickson, and Studio 54 shot by Jason Schmidt.

In the coming days, we will reveal select Out 100 honorees shot by each of the photographers and situated in each of the three celebrations. All 100 honorees, including our five amazing cover stars, will be revealed on November 11.
