  • This industry is full of friendships by convenience and, even worse, proximity. But one person who always recognized me, far before any sort of meaningful title or promotion happened, was @troysurratt. I’ve known Troy for years and have watched as he’s built his own, namesake cosmetics brand from scratch — marveling all the while at the finishes of the powders, the formulas of the foundations, and the technology of something as simple as a lash curler. For our Beauty Issue, I sat down (and cried) with Troy as he recalled his favorite memories of his mentor, @kevynaucoin. In this beautiful tribute, Troy shows the power of having fellow gay men as mentors and examples, and what happens when we look out for one another — a lesson that’s become a recurring theme in the past couple years of my career. Hit the link in bio to remember the incredible Kevyn, who paved the way for so many of us. Troy, I’m sending you and Nathaniel love as always. Thank you again!

  • I remember getting a phone call from set that captured this moment from @missfamenyc’s cover shoot: “By the end of our 12-hour shoot, the entire crew — photographer, stylist, and beyond — remains totally captivated by Fame’s chameleonic posing. For the last shot, Kudacki orders Fame to give the camera “tears.” An assistant dutifully brings over Visine, and a few drops in each eye release streams down her cheeks, smudging and running the immaculately applied makeup she's wearing. The crew changes the soundtrack, and Adele’s 25 begins blaring over the sound system. As Kudacki continues her encouragement, something shifts in our model. Off came the tousled blonde wig, and somehow, the fabricated tears turn into real ones. Miss Fame, our beautiful supermodel, is actually crying.” Link in bio for more. 📷 @paolakudacki 👗 @yashuasimmons

  • I last saw @missfamenyc at the Paris Men’s Week shows, where she walked in, towering above all the men’s editors, wearing a Dior Homme corset and a futuristic purple, glitter lipstick. Watching the cameras go wild as she walked by was the highlight of my Fashion Month. I’m so happy she’s on our cover this month. #outmagazine 📷 @paolakudacki 👗 @yashuasimmons

  • I’m not sure what I ever did to deserve befriending one of my heroes, but I am so grateful for @janetmock every single day. Happy birthday to the one and only, the original. You deserve all the success that’s come your way and more. ❤️❤️❤️

  • Happy #InternationalWomensDay. It was with this day in mind that @janetmock dreamt up the concept for this image: @missmajor1, who fought at the Stonewall Riots, and @tourmaliiine, whose art memorializes the icons overlooked by history. Nobody could have captured this moment better than the inimitable @mickalenethomas. Link in bio if you want a read ❤️
