100 Women We Love 2015

We are thrilled to present this year’s 100 Women We Love—an incredibly diverse group of out entertainers, athletes, artists, activists, business leaders and elected officials.


Kaci and Holly Clark-Porter are redefining what it means to be a power couple. Married for three years, the two were recently jointly ordained as ministers at Delaware´s First and Central Presbyterian Church. According to USA Today, they may be the first same-sex couple to ever be ordained together. What made the moment even more unique was that it happened a few days after the Presbyterian Church began permitting same-sex marriages. Kaci and Holly are also making change via The Big Gay Church (biggaychurch.org), which operates at First and Central. It gives queer folks-so frequently alienated by religious communities-a place to feel welcome. “So many people are forced to settle for careers they can hardly abide,” says Kaci. “Yet I go to work every day knowing that there is nowhere else I´d rather be, no others I´d rather work with, nothing else I´d rather be doing and no one else I´d rather serve. It is deeply gratifying, especially as a queer clergyperson. So often we watch the jobs we want go to straight folk, who we know, for many churches, were the ´safer choice´ as a pastor. I didn´t have to settle and neither did my congregation-our relationship is genuine and mutual, and no pastor anywhere could ask for more than that!” -GH
