'Under Pressure' to make 'Changes': Hicklin proffers more 'Out' details

by Jeremy Hooper

New editor Aaron Hicklin has revealed more details about his "Bowie gay, not Cher gay" concept for Out magazine. And the next cover boy for the Hicklin-helmed Out? Johnny Knoxville.

Bowie gay...

Iman And David

...indeed.

However, Hicklin does reveal to Women's Wear Daily that "Project Runway"s Tim Gunn, legendary novelist Dale Peck, and NY Observer writer Nicholas Boston (all "out," so to speak) will hop on board as contributers starting with the October issue. Boston will reportedly write on "gay themes in advertising and media," so here's hoping his first piece will be titled: "How Gay Kids Could Be Inspired and Encouraged If They Had Positive, Openly Gay Role Models On The Covers Of Magazines Whose Staffs Should Really Feel A Responsibility And Desire To Present Such Imagery."
