This behind the scenes video from the Out100 photo shoots includes outtakes and interviews with Daniel Hernandez, Don Lemon, Chaz Bono, Jared Max, Senator Mark Leno, Kye Allums, Revs Kathy Ragsdale and Mally Lloyd, and David Mixner.
As Hernandez, the man who helped save Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords life after the Tucson shooting, reminds people in the video, we are going into an important election year, and where we are now, with changes to "don't ask, don't tell" and other progressive legislation, is very different than before Obama was elected three years ago. "We need to celebrate the victories that we’ve had, but also realize that there's still a lot of work to be done, and not everything's going to be done overnight."
