A few quibbles (beside my absence)

* Some of these folks are not even officially OUT! (Jodie Foster, Anderson Cooper)

** The cover is great! I think GREG BERLANTI (#19) looks fabulous & I do think he is a GENIUS! (Did I mention I think DIRTY, SEXY, MONEY is brilliant & BROTHERS & SISTERS is fantastic?) BILLY BALDWIN, DAVE ANNABELLE & MATTHEW RHYS are all stars of Berlanti shows & they all look HOT, but the way this is photographed deceptively makes it seems as if they are all part of the gay POWER 50 list!
P.S. Are all sexy British men required to have RHYS in their names??

And Congrats to PEREZ HILTON (#16) The Wall Street Journal announced this morning that Perez has a new deal for a nationwide radio show! Plus many other pending deals. I think he'll be terrific. Even though I still think its sad that he had to take a lie detector test to prove that someone (JM ) kissed him.
