Somebody pinch me! I must be dreaming. This is so incredibly amazing. I almost have no words to describe how I feel.
The December issue of OUT Magazine hit newsstands today and features the publication's coveted OUT 100 List, the publication's annual list of the year's most influential gay and lesbian newsmakers and tastemakers.
I'm thrilled that I was selected on the list together with trail blazers like Adam Lambert, Wanda Sykes, Neil Patrick Harris, Dan Choi, Cyndi Lauper, Chaz Bono and Pedro Almodovar. (You can get the entire list here.)
I'm truly honored and grateful for this acknowledgment. It feels very special to be awarded for something that I love doing every day - sharing great new music - whether that is on this blog, through the Superfraiche live events, television or my upcoming new radio show. I simply do what I'm passionate about and to get honored for that in such a big way feels amazing.
Thank you very much to the entire OUT editorial team. Thank you also to Jason Bell for that fun photoshoot in Harlem (you made me look good!). And of course, thank you to all the readers of ArjanWrites.com for coming back here every day and inspiring me to share and write. It means the world to me.
