Jonathan Groff, Chelsea Manning, Lena Waithe & More Make Out100's Annual List!

Out magazine has released their annual Out 100 list with actor Jonathan Groff, former soldier Chelsea Manning, actress/producer/writer Lena Waithe, and fashion designer Shayne Oliver on the four covers!

Here’s what they shared with the mag:

Chelsea, on the transgender bathroom bill: “The bathroom bill has turned into a battleground, but trans people didn’t start that battle—it wasn’t an issue until it was turned into one, and it’s a way to undermine our ability to even exist.”

Lena, on winning a comedy writing Emmy: “If I wasn’t a queer black woman, I don’t know if I would have been standing on that stage. I hoped that they could see through me that when you tell your story, when you live your authentic life, only good things will come from it.”

Shayne, on being different: “The idea is that I’m different than you, and you have to respect it. As opposed to, I’m different and I’m also the same as you.”

Jonathan, on the benefit of coming out: “I think one of the benefits of being out is that you can share your stories, be who you are, and put yourself in the work regardless.”

Master of None's Lena Waithe Made Emmys 2017 History for Her Comedy Writing Win

Writer and actress Lena Waithe just made Emmys history by becoming the first black woman to win for writing in a comedy series!

Lena and Aziz Ansari won the writing award for their work on the “Thanksgiving” episode of Master of None, and her speech was really inspiring.

“My LGBTQIA family, I see each and every one of you. The things that make us different — those are our superpowers,” she said. “Every day when you walk out the door, put on your imaginary cape, and go out there and conquer the world. Because the world would not be as beautiful as it is if we weren’t in it.”

Aziz Ansari Says His Mom 'Doesn't Even Like' Acting On 'Master Of None'!

Aziz Ansari is opening up about his real-life parents – Fatima and Shoukath – starring as his parents in his hit Netflix show Master Of None.

“My dad is a practicing gastroenterologist; my mom works at the office. When they come to do the series, they’re using their vacation time to help me,” the 34-year-old actor recently told NPR. “My mom doesn’t even like acting on the show. She’s really just doing it because she loves me very much.”

“She hates acting,” Aziz added. “Before the second season, when we announced the second season, she’s like, “OK, this season the mom character’s on vacation or she’s just gone.” And I was like, “She can’t be on vacation the whole time.” She’s like, “No, maybe she’s at a wedding sometimes.” She just didn’t want to be a part of it. She did it because she loves me and my brother is also heavily involved with the show. It’s a really special thing that we get to do this together.”

“And after the [first] season aired, my dad came to New York and we went on Stephen Colbert‘s show together,” Aziz concluded. “And we went out to dinner afterwards, and he was telling me… ‘The reason I’m acting in the show and doing all of this is just to spend more time with you and to see you’.”

Pictured: Aziz joining his co-stars Lena Waithe, Angela Bassett, producer Alan Yang, director Melina Matsoukas, and moderator Adam Scott at their For Your Consideration event for Master of None held at the Saban Media Center on Monday (June 5) in North Hollywood, Calif.
