In an age where anyone who starts a blog can call themselves a writer, anyone who knows Photoshop calls themselves a photographer and anyone who dresses his friends up at home will say he’s a stylist, it can be pretty hard to find the talent in the increasing large pool of “talent.” That’s why we spent all year searching for people truly inspiring. We consulted with experts in music, art, fashion and performance to find men worthy of being labeled “special.” Now we are confident the gays on the following pages offer something extraordinary. We look forward to following their careers in the months to come as the rest of New York realizes their gifts, too.
