Out Leaks “100”

The year’s drawing to a close, which means it’s time for gay glossy Out to celebrate 100 homo movers-and-shakers who made 2008 so damn great!

The journos over there are slowly leaking some of their honorees, including Rachel Maddow, who tops the list. And with good reason – Maddow’s catapulted to fame as a pundit over at MSNBC, which in turn gave her a prime time slot. Well done, Maddow.

Activist Evan Wolfson and NPR correspondent Ari Shapiro also made the cut, as did film makers Jarvez Sharma and Tom Kalin. You can see a few more of the honorees over at the mag’s website.

Also, the Out team just sent out a press release informing us – and thereby the world – that comedienne Chelsea Handler will be hosting their annual Out 100 gala at Gotham Hall.

    The AGE of MADDOW is here! Say goodbye to Hannity, O’Reilly, Limbaugh and Savage! Truth and Reason are Back!

    What over active queen with a make up kit, got hold of Rachel?
    She is MUCH more attractive with a lot LESS.
    Rachel you have my permission to kick that make up guy, HARD and REPEATEDLY!

    The wallpaper says it all: Rachel Maddow is having an affair with Blanche Devereaux!

    She is FANTASTIC !!!! Intelligent,wise beyond her years and charismatic.

    Jarvez Sharma and Tom Kalin ? One made a movie with the stereotypical “killer queen” (Savage Grace) and I don’t even know who Jarvez Sharma is.
    Rachel Maddow is a great choice, she’s smart and is able to discuss her position without resorting to low tactics. She’s the Ellen Degeneres of politics.
    I like Chelsea Handler and I think she will do a great job, presenting the Out 100 gala.

    OK, I have to rephrase my other post. Jarvez Sharma directed a very good documentary called “A Jihad for Love”, so his inclusion was worthy.

  • Tim

    Chelsea Handler? Out can’t do better than that? She’s useless and unfunny.

    Sam Adams anyone….he may not be big on the national stage, but he is the first gay mayor of Portland(largest city in US to have a gay mayor).

  • Joe

    I think that it’s Parvez Sharma, not Jarez. Seriously, the jossip blogs are some of the worst edited that I’ve ever seen…
