Derek Chadwick — newly out actor, musician and Instagram model — claims one of the August 2018 GT covers.
Inside, the 23-year-old says:
Coming out in this way allows me to use the privilege that I have to help other people who don't have that. The opportunities that I've been given to have a voice. I feel like that was the main reason why I wanted to do this cover. I want to be the person that's at those rallies and events advocating for people and anybody. I never felt that I could do that unless I did this, and I think this is a major way for people to see visible queer people.
