This summer, Out enters its 30th year with over 300 printed issues. Here, we revisit and re-create 10 covers -- celebrating them for what they were while reimagining them for newer audiences.
In a now-iconic cover, Clea DuVall and Natasha Lyonne were our "Girls of Summer" for Out's July 2000 issue. Then starring in the satirical cult classic But I'm a Cheerleader as two lesbian teens who've been sent to a conversion therapy camp, the two sent pulses racing.
Now it's singer Jada Michael (in pink pants) and all-around talent Bay Davis that are coming into focus. Michael had her first moment with her sexy hit "Freak" but is set to serve up another set of bops to soundtrack our summer. Her single "Go" is an entrancing and sensual sex-love anthem inspired by her journey out of abusive relationships. And Davis? Between her poetry, tattoos, activism, and everything else, you're bound to see her throughout Pride season and long after.
