Gay fashion & lifestyle brand Out has partnered with Lexus, which will be the presenting sponsor of Out's October 2012 20th Anniversary Collector’s Issue as well as a Lexus-branded, custom-created content channel on Out.com. Additionally, on Oct. 9, 2012, OUT and Lexus will host the Out 20th Anniversary Presented by Lexus, a VIP celebration being held at W Hollywood’s exclusive outdoor oasis, Station Hollywood.
“For the past 20 years the Out brand has charted the evolution of gay men and women around the world,” said Aaron Hicklin, editor in chief of Out, in a release. “Its images, from a group of gay men and women marching on Washington in 1993 to designer John Bartlett clad in a military uniform in 1998 and one of the first major covers of Lady Gaga in 2009, have helped define the moment. It’s the support of companies such as Lexus and their commitment to diversity that have helped make Out a leader in luxury for 20 years.”
