David Needleman

The Oscar-winning screenwriter just signed with Wilhelmina.

Dustin Lance Black is having a good year. The Oscar-winning writer of Milk recently brought decades of the human rights movement to life in the ABC miniseries, When We Rise. Now the writer and activist is a triple threat, adding model to his growing resume.

Black recently signed a contract with Wilhelmina Models, joining the ranks of Nicki Minaj, Demi Lovato and Nick Jonas. He'll be working with the agency to secure editorial opportunities and fashion campaigns.

"In a time when too many are using our differences to divide us, I want to help lift our differences up as what make us magnificent, what make us powerful," Black said. "Fashion has the potential to help our individuality roar, and right now, we must use every tool in our arsenal to amplify that roar."

Black has covered OUT multiple times, and we can certainly vouch for his smolder skills.
