To pay homage to their individualism, this year's portfolio is inspired by iconic portraits of the 20th century. Check out the women who were unveiled in Out's sneak peek:

Revs. Mally Lloyd and Katherine Ragsdale - Episcopalian Priests

An Episcopalian priest, Rev. Dr. Katherine Ragsdale (right) served for 17 years on the national board for the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice. She drew fire in 2009 from religious conservatives when she called abortion a "blessing" and the doctors who perform them "heroes." This year, she and fellow Episcopalian priest Rev. Mally Lloyd were married at the Cathedral Church of St. Paul in Boston by Bishop M. Thomas Shaw on New Year’s Day.

Geri Jewell - Comedian, Actor and Writer

Jo might have been the butchest of the girls on The Facts of Life, but Geri Jewell, who played Cousin Geri, was the real-life lesbian. A comedian with cerebral palsy, Jewell broke ground as the first person with a visible disability to have a regular role on a primetime network series. She was also a regular on HBO’s Deadwood, and this year, released her autobiography, I’m Walking as Straight as I Can. “I wrote it to tell my truth and a part of my truth is being gay. If I didn’t tell that part of who I am, it would be like writing an autobiography and not saying I have cerebral palsy.”

Céline Sciamma – Screenwriter and Director

Sciamma has been showered with accolades and awards this year -- from the Berlin International Film Festival and numerous LGBT film festivals -- for Tomboy, which explores gender through the eyes of a young girl. The filmmaker’s sophomore feature was recently accepted into two French national programs that curate a select number of movies approved for curricular use in primary and secondary schools.

Karey Dornetto - Comedian

The daughter of a military professor and an ex-nun, Karey Dornetto -- who has written for South Park and Arrested Development -- likes to blow your mind with her humorous takes on everyday matters. This year, she worked as a writer on the second season of the hit NBC show Community and is currently plotting season two of Portlandia. “I like Cindy Sherman,” say Dornetto, when asked about her favorite iconic imagery. “She does kind of weird self portraiture, which I tend to do a lot of, too… and send to people, which might be weird.” On the horizon for 2012? Dornetto is developing a pilot of her own.
