4 Pennsylvanians

On 2017 Out 100 List

Posted

Out Magazine has released the 'Out 100' since 1994, featuring individuals who the publication considers having made compelling contributions to society as out LGBTQ people.

Every year, we highlight the Pennsylvanians who were selected.

For 2017, four Pennsylvanians — though all who were born and raised in the commonwealth but now live in New York City — have been named to the Out 100 list for 2017:

Kyle Abraham, Dancer and Choreographer (from Pittsburgh)

Johnathan Groff, Entertainer of the Year (from Lancaster)

Chris McCarthy, President of MTV (from Levittown)

Benj Pasek, Songwriter (from Lower Merion)

Songwriter Max Vernon and actor Nathan Lee Graham are honored in this year's Out 100, who both performed last year at our 2016 PYC event in New York City.

Additionally, two honorees this year attended schools in Pennsylvania. Playwright Paula Vogel attended Bryn Mawr College and actor Samira Wiley attended Temple University.

Past honorees from Pennsylvania in recent years include Alison Bechdel, Lee Daniels, Edie Windsor, and Evan Wolfson.
