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

Wilson Cruz, we love you more and more each year. You’ve been breaking barriers and pushing boundaries for queer representation for decades now, and no one does it quite like you.

When we were teens, we all had crushes on your groundbreaking My So-Called Life character, Rickie Vasquez. A lot of us were terrified to be ourselves in high school where it feels like the whole world has judgmental eyes. And you showed us what was possible. We had never seen anyone like us on TV, and you changed that, and we’ll be forever thankful.

Now that we’ve grown up, you have too, and damn, you’ve done it well! On Star Trek: Discovery, you even pushed queer representation into the 23rd century as our favorite space daddy, Dr. Hugh Culber! There, you showed us that no matter where or when we are, there will always be people in the universe with whom we can form a chosen family.

From the sincerest part of our hearts, we also thank you for all the shirtless and tank-top pics you post on your Instagram. Your abs, your chest, your arms, your beautiful silver hair, and your gorgeous smile remind us why we love being gay. Your work with GLAAD and GLSEN has literally saved lives, and we can’t think of anything more attractive than that. You truly are the best of us. You inspire us to be better community members, better role models, and better people.Gracias, Wilson Cruz. Te amamos, te adoramos, y te admiramos tanto.
