Out Magazine has a small profile of Ms. Maddow (seven sentences!) in its next issue, which is part of the magazine’s annual ‘Out 100’ issue, a “unashamedly subjective list of the gay men and women who moved culture—ours and the culture at large—over the past year.”
Editor Aaron Hicklin tells Media Mob via email that, “It’s a hugely ambitious issue—we shoot all 100 people, making it the biggest original annual portfolio in any magazine, and this year’s issue is a spin on Classic Hollywood.”
Looking for media people on the list, you’ll find:
- Ari Shaprio, a reporter for NPR, who broke a story that a Justice department candidate was blocked because she was a lesbian.
- Alex Ross, New Yorker music writer, and rich genius.
- Diana Nyad, a broadcast journalist, who filed dispatches from the Beijing Olympics for NPR and is launching a new Web site aimed at boosting women’s self-esteem called BravaBody.com.
If that list seems a wee bit small, Jesse Oxfeld also wrote a piece for Out chronicling gay campaign reporters, and earlier this year the gay reporters and editors at The New York Times made Out‘s Power List.
