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.


This folk acoustic singer-songwriter has come a long way since belting the Pocahontas soundtrack in the back of her mom´s van. Since then, Natalie Ceva has sung on the Today show and is releasing her first independent EP, Atlas, this summer. The Los Angeleno knows she followed the right path when she locks eyes with an audience member who is engaged in her music. “I´m not just talking about the head bobbing or swaying, but the apparent shift in their eyes. They seem to soften and look at you as if you´ve known them for years. As if every word you are singing to them was their own, picked out of their mind and given back to them in song.” On an even more personal note, Ceva confides that her coming out process was a long one, although she wasn´t aware of it at the time: “I went through the classic signs of kissing girls when I was drunk to actually dating a girl my sophomore year in college but just thinking it was a phase. I finally admitted to myself that I was gay a year later and came out to my parents…By no means was this an easy time…but, over the years, we are becoming stronger than we ever were before.”-SJ
