It’s always an honor to be thought of favorably and this is especially the case when said honor comes from one’s peers and colleagues. Many thanks to the editorial team at Hornet and Unicorn Booty for including me in their list of 100 LGBT to look out for in 2017. I am inspired to make 2017 greater than ever by the faith you place in me.

There are few luxurious spots on the globe this luxury lifestyle curator hasn’t uncovered, explored and written home about, but 2017 will see Wells take his expertise a step further still. On tap for the new year is a LivingWells travel concierge service that aims to create curated travel itineraries for the most discerning travelers, as well as a menswear blog and the debut of a brand-new series of travel guides. Can’t decide where to vacation next? Let Duane Wells offer some advice. —S.H.
