MAN OF THE YEAR: NYLE DiMARCO

BEING A TIRELESS FIGHTER FOR EQUALITY AND HIS CAMPAIGNING TO HELP THE DEAF COMMUNITY MAKE NYLE DiMARCO THE PERFECT CANDIDATE FOR AN AWARD. BUT WHEN YOU FACTOR IN A CASUAL ADMISSION ABOUT HIS SEXUAL FLUIDITY AND HIS WINNING WAY WITH PEOPLE, IT’S LITTLE WONDER HE’S OUR MAN OF THE YEAR
PHOTOGRAPHS: YU TSAI

FASHION: JOSEPH KOCHARIAN

SUPPORTED BY

Nyle DiMarco glides into a restaurant in Los Angeles and it’s as if someone has hit a key and added an Instagram filter to my view of the entire room. It’s clear within seconds that he’s a man who radiates charm, a charm that helped him win both the 2015 season of America’s Next Top Model and Dancing With the Stars the following year.

But Nyle’s charm covers up a fierce passion for activism that has led him to set up his own foundation to benefit the deaf community he’s been a part of since birth.

It’s in the service of the Nyle DiMarco Foundation that he puts his charm to its best use; when this man smiles, people all over the world become receptive to his message.

And since he announced that he identifies as sexually fluid, his army of queer fans have become even more receptive.

Later in the day, Nyle, 28, will have his photograph taken for Attitude. He’ll take his clothes off without any sense of inhibition and gamely grapple with a snake that becomes increasingly frisky as the shoot goes on. As he does, everyone on set will have the opportunity to witness his charm in action — and I’ll watch as, one by one, they all fall under his spell.
