In its special December issue, Out recognizes the 100 most influential people in gay culture with a special list spanning categories such as books, business, fashion, film, media, music, politics, performance, television and visual arts. The star-studded Out100 will also unveil five celebrities being recognized for their commitment to their crafts and gay rights, including Humanitarian of the Year, Iman; Entertainer of the Year, Rufus Wainwright; Ingénue of the Year, Anne Hathaway; Stylemaker of the Year, Michael Kors; and Artist of the Year, John Cameron Mitchell.

“At the end of each year, gay Americans look back to celebrate their victories, reflect on any defeats and prepare for the year ahead,” said Aaron Hicklin, Out magazine’s Editor in Chief. “The Out100 issue celebrates the men and women who have helped shape gay culture throughout the year.”

Rufus attended last night’s reception and looks terrific, don’t you think? And the snake necklace is a nice touch.
