As 2015 winds to a close, Caitlyn Jenner can add "Newsmaker of the Year" to her ever-growing list of accomplishments.
The 66-year-old Olympic champion, who came out as transgender in an April interview with Diane Sawyer, nabbed that prestigious title on Out magazine's OUT 100 list for 205. Meanwhile, "Portlandia" creator and star Carrie Brownstein was honored as "Artist of the Year," and British singer-songwriter Olly Alexander is the "Breakout of the Year."
Jenner told the magazine that she's "terribly excited about the future" after what's turned out to be a banner year.
“I want to be excited about life always. For the longest time, I was not. I isolated myself from the world. I never felt like I fit in anywhere,” Jenner told the magazine. “Today that’s all changed.”
Each year Out magazine chooses 100 of the most compelling lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people in the world to create its OUT 100 list. Honorees are chosen from all walks of life, and include actors, writers, politicians, activists, sports figures and artists, among others.
Also featured on the 2015 list are U.S. soccer star Robbie Rogers, "Looking" actor Russell Tovey and "Cosby Show" icon Raven-Symoné. Check out the full OUT 100 here, and check out a selection of the list below.
Congrats to the honorees!
