Out editors pen love letters to Hollywood's queer men who are changing the world with beauty, brains, and heart.

The charismatic and uber-talented American Idol contestant we first met in 2008 has become a strong, empowered, and liberated superstar. And when you decided to come out to the world and started living as your truest self, we were so happy and so proud to welcome you into our LGBTQ+ community.

Archie, keeping up with your evolution and growth is nothing but a blast. We’re always here to cheer you on, stream your music, celebrate new milestones, and yes, also press “like” on your occasional thirst traps and viral TikTok videos. It brings us joy to see you do it all while maintaining the same level of class, kindness, and empathy you’ve always had in your life and career.

We know that coming-out journeys aren’t always exactly the way we wish they could’ve been. Along the way, you’ve had to face people whose minds weren’t open to learning, evolving, and understanding, even as you did your very best to meet them halfway. But we’re still proud of you for trying, and just as proud to see that you stood up for yourself when the time felt right.

From “Crush” to “Hell Together,” we’ve been on a long ride with you and your music, Archie…and we wouldn’t have it any other way! Thank you for being you, and in turn becoming a voice for many queer people who find themselves later in life.
