GQ’s 22nd-annual Men of the Year issue honorees

  • Colin Kaepernick is GQ‘s Citizen of the Year. While Kap maintains his silent protest, he collaborated with GQ on a special project: a wide-ranging series of interviews with ten of his closest confidants and supporters—including rapper J. Cole, filmmaker Ava DuVernay, legendary artist Harry Belafonte, and more. Together they explore Colin Kaepernick’s actions, provide insight into his world right now, and explain why there’s more work to be done. Read the story: “Colin Kaepernick Will Not Be Silenced”
  • Stephen Colbert is GQ’s Bad Hombre of the Year. Our nation’s “ombudsman of late night” dug deep with us on the notably terrible 2017 we’ve had, the potential ripple effect of Donald Trump’s presidency, his role as an interviewer, and what makes a bad guest (looking at you, Mr. President). Read the story: “Stephen Colbert Makes America Great”
  • Kevin Durant is GQ‘s Champion of the Year. Writer Zach Baron went all the way to Delhi, India, to hang with the NBA MVP. Durant sums up the Golden State Warriors’ winning season and touches on that game-winning shot, LeBron James, Jay-Z’s 4:44, those tweets, and getting heckled by Rihanna. Come back Thursday for Kevin Durant’s cover story.
  • Gal Gadot is GQ‘s Wonder Woman of the Year. GQ sent Caity Weaver to the beaches of Israel to visit the superhero incarnate, who spoke about being recognized, egg sandwiches, accents, and putting her Israeli armed forces defense training to work. Come back soon for Gal Gadot’s cover story.
