Out magazine rolls out its 19th Out100 list of LGBT celebrities

Out magazine is slowly unwrapping its annual top 100 list of influential LGBT personalities.  There are 36 faces in the annual Out100 -- including Ian McKellen, soccer star Robbie Rogers and actor Guillermo Díaz.

McKellen, an Oscar-nominated actor and longtime advocate of LGBT rights, may be the biggest name on the list. But some of the lesser-known faces are arresting.

PHOTOS: Gay celebrities -- who’s out?

There’s Jack Andraka, a well-spoken 16-year-old. He came up with a cancer-detecting method and won the grand prize at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair in 2012. 


And Casey Legler is the first woman to work as a male model. She has a contract with Ford Models. Legler told Time: “It would be a really beautiful thing if we could all just wear what we wanted, without it meaning something.”

Check out more of the faces on the Out100.
