QUEER VOICES

Joel Grey, Edie Windsor Among Those Honored At OUT 100 Party In New York

Oh, what a night!

The stars of Out magazine's annual OUT 100 list gathered in Manhattan for a festive, end-of-year fête amidst community allies and friends.

It was a milestone celebration for Out. Named 2015's "Ally of the Year," President Barack Obama appeared on the magazine's OUT 100 issue, becoming the first sitting U.S. president to be featured on the cover of a lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) magazine. 

Oscar-winning actor Joel Grey, "The Normal Heart" playwright Larry Kramer and marriage equality pioneer Edie Windsor were among those to attend the event. Also spotted were YouTube personality Raymond Braun, Broadway actor Andy Mientus and Tony-winning director and choreographer Jerry Mitchell.

Check out some of the photos below for an inside look at the festivities!
