Out Magazine Celebrates Year's Most Compelling LGBT Figures


Had some much-needed fun (and vodka) last night at the Out 100 gala at Metropolitan West in Midtown, which doubled as a Trump survivors support group. Honorees included Don Lemon, Tracey Norman, Secretary of the Army Eric Fanning, and heroes of Pulse Nightclub. My photog friend Greg Endries was my "plus one," and we ran into a bunch of familiar faces, all ready to lend a well-toned shoulder to cry on. (I'm also going to a Stronger Together party tonight.) See the complete list of Out 100 honorees -- shot by Gavin Bond in beautiful black and white -- HERE. And help keep LGBT media alive by subscribing to Out magazine HERE.


Heroes of the Pulse nightclub massacre were in attendance ...

Disco-ball earrings are definitely not "out"!


Fashionable attendees ...


We ended up at Boomer Banks' after-party at Le Bain (on top of the Standard Hotel), but my supermodel diet -- cocktails and no food -- finally caught up to me, so I didn't last much longer than snapping this picture of the incredible view!

UPDATE:


Speaking of the Pulse survivors, they were just named people of the year by the Advocate! Read HERE.
