Subjects Include Dustin Lance Black, Wade Davis, Ellen DeGeneres, Neil Patrick Harris, Cynthia Nixon, Suze Orman, Christine Quinn And Wanda Sykes

In a series of intimate portraits, THE OUT LIST explores lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender identity. Through thoughtful stories of love, loss, trial and triumph, a diverse group of trailblazing individuals share insights into what it means to be out in their lives, community and country.

From award-winning photographer and director Timothy Greenfield-Sanders, THE OUT LIST presents compelling first-hand accounts spanning a wide range of topics, from marriage equality and religion to culture, family and politics, when it debuts THURSDAY, JUNE 27 (9:30-10:30 p.m. ET/PT), exclusively on HBO. Marking LGBT Pride Month, the film debuts in conjunction with the 44th anniversary the 1969 Stonewall Riots, widely considered the official start of the gay rights movement.

Other HBO playdates: June 27 (5:20 a.m.), 29 (5:45 a.m.) and 30 (6:00 p.m.), and July 3 (1:30 p.m.), 5 (2:30 p.m.) and 8 (10:00 a.m.)

Alternately humorous and poignant, THE OUT LIST features a diverse cross-section of accomplished leaders from entertainment, business, sports and public service sharing intimate stories on childhood, understanding gender and sexuality, building careers while out and reflecting on the challenges still facing the LGBT community. Against the backdrop of historic Supreme Court hearings on same-sex marriage and financial equality, subjects recall joyous moments of acceptance and romance, along with painful instances of intolerance and discrimination, offering unique modern perspectives on being out in America.
