Actor Sir Ian McKellen, statistician Nate Silver, singer Mary Lambert and actor-model Laverne Cox are among those making gay glossy Out's annual Out100 list.

Out editors this week started teasing photos of the magazine's upcoming double issue of notables.

Also making the list are soccer player Robbie Rogers – who became the U.S.'s first openly gay man to play in a professional sports league when he debuted in May with the LA Galaxy – actor George Takei, journalist Frank Bruni, transgender advocate Janet Mock, director John Krokidas, HRC President Chad Griffin, Pennsylvania State Rep. Brian Sims, and singer-songwriter Steve Grand.

Cassidy Lynn Campbell, the 16-year-old transgender student who was crowned homecoming queen in September, and the two couples whose lawsuit brought down Proposition 8 are also included.

The special issue hits newsstands later this month.
