Out joins forces with Express to shine a spotlight on three visionary voices behind Out in a new campaign that highlights the brand’s just-released Love Unites collection. Meet Editor in Chief Phillip Picardi, Executive Editor Raquel Willis and Associate Managing Editor Coco Romack. These ambitious storytellers believe in living – and dressing – for the moment, each with a wildly ambitious style to call their own.

The Love Unites collection debuts in stores and online this May featuring an inclusive gender-neutral collection of tops, shorts, dresses, rompers, and more. 25% of the net sales will be donated to GLAAD to support their mission of working through entertainment, news, and digital media to share stories from the LGBTQ community that accelerate acceptance.
To capture the team in the Love Unites collection, Out invited photographer Lia Clay and director Kelly Teacher to a studio shoot with sweeping views of the Manhattan skyline. The creative duo wanted to depict each editor as vibrant, ambitious and unafraid in their own ways. So get to know Phillip, Raquel and Coco and see how each of them wears their pride with confidence in Out’s Love Unites series.
