This year’s Out 100 celebrates an array of LGBT women

Every year Out magazine lists their 100 LGBT people to watch. In the past, the Out 100 has also included allies (Katy Perry, Anne Hathaway among them) and frequently had a great imbalance of men to women. This year, Out seems to have attempted to be more diverse in their inclusion, with close to half of the 100 being female-identified.

There’s also a strong showing of bisexual women, trans-identified women and women of color, although all four of the major honorees (Caitlyn Jenner, Carrie Brownstein, Lily Tomlin and Olly Alexander) are white. The cover (or covers) has yet to be released, but hopefully it will be as inclusive as the list overall.
