Hey Out readers!

If you are already subscribed to Out Magazine, you've probably gotten your latest issue in the mail, and if not, the May/June issue hits newsstands on May 28, so make sure to pick it up!

The latest issue is one of our hottest of the year, featuring Broadway icon Jonathan Groff on the cover, as well as a photoshoot with Drag Race Pit Crew heartthrobs Bruno and Bryce modeling the latest and greatest in summer swimwear!

The photoshoot is up online, but I think this is one you should own a physical copy of.

If that's not enough to convince you to subscribe (or at least buy this issue), it also features an in-depth interview by Bernardo Sim with Michael James Scott, a Black gay actor and the longest-running Genie in Disney's Aladdin on Broadway!

Scott began the role by being the first actor to play the Genie in the Australian production of the musical, and went on to star in the North American tour and West End performances, but it was in 2019 he went back to Broadway to join the principal cast of Aladdin.

It's a terrific issue that will get you ready for a great Pride month!

Now, onto the latest queer pop culture news!

Here are the LGBTQ+ celebs who got married or engaged in 2024 (so far)

Woman Crush Wednesday

Our Woman Crush Wednesday goes to the hilarious, talented, and Irish Ayo Edebiri! In a recent interview, she said that she left her pentacostal upbringing because she couldn't reconcile the idea of her gay and Muslim friends going to Hell. We love to see it!

This Week in Out History

Did you know that May 22 was Harvey Milk's birthday and, since 2009, has been Harvey Milk Day in the state of California?

Milk was the first out gay person elected to office in California, when he was elected to the city's borad of supervisors in 1977. Sadly, less thana year into his service, he was assassinated by Dan White.

Quote of the Week

"When I was thirteen years old, my beautiful mother and my father moved me from a conservative Mormon home in San Antonio, Texas, to California, and I heard the story of Harvey Milk. And it gave me hope. It gave me the hope to live my life. It gave me the hope one day I could live my life openly as who I am and that maybe even I could even fall in love and one day get married. I wanna, I wanna thank my mom, who has always loved me for who I am even when there was pressure not to. But most of all, if Harvey had not been taken from us thirty years ago, I think he'd want me to say to all of the gay and lesbian kids out there tonight who have been told that they are less than by their churches or by the government or by their families, that you are beautiful, wonderful creatures of value and that no matter what anyone tells you God does love you, and that very soon, I promise you, you will have equal rights, federally, across this great nation of ours."

- Dustin Lance Black during his Oscars acceptance speech for winning Best Original Screenplay for Milk in 2009.
