HBO premiered Timothy Greenfield-Sanders' documentary "The Out List" last month, in which a diverse cross-section of Americans share personal and professional stories -- both heart-wrenching and triumphant -- of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer experience.
Now, a companion coffee table book is available, featuring Greenfield-Sanders' portraits, text from the interviews by Sam McConnell and an introduction by President Obama's inaugural poet Richard Blanco.
Activist and actor, politician and provocateur, drag queen, and athlete all share personal stories that set them apart and tie them together, revealing a poignant, familiar journey to find themselves and secure a place in modern society. The subjects in "The Out List" are celebrated not just for being "out" and visible in their own lives, but also because they share a sense of responsibility for the greater community and for the betterment of future generations.
