Jeremy Heimans, Activist: Jeremy Heimans launched AllOut.org this year, a global LGTB rights organization. Previously, he cofounded Avaaz.org in 2007, a civic-minded organization to give voice to individuals on climate change, human rights and religious conflict.
Jose Antonio Vargas, Journalist: Vargas is known for his coverage of gay issues, but this year, he came out in a completely new way: as an undocumented immigrant. Born in the Philippines and raised in California, Vargas later discovered his immigration status was invalid. A major figurehead for the DREAM Act – which would have provided permanent residency to some illegal immigrants – he’s now working on the Define American campaign for immigrant rights.
Jeff Whitty, Playwright: The Tony-winning playwright hit it big with Avenue Q and also write the libretto for this year’s Bring It On: The Musical. This year’s triumph? His Broadway-bound musical adaptation of Tales of the City, with music by Jake Shears and John Garden of Scissor Sisters, that premiered this summer in San Francisco.
Wayne Koestenbaum, Poet & Cultural Critic: John Waters summed up Wayne’s book when he wrote: “This literary ‘topping from the bottom’ is the funniest, scariest, most heartbreaking yet powerful book I’ve read in a long time.”
