Sneak peek at the new Advocate, starring Cate Blanchett

For its new issue, The Advocate turns its attention to the "Coolest Straight People" of 2007, with Cate Blanchett (who plays a mean Bob Dylan in Todd Haynes' I'm Not There) topping the list and nabbing the cover. The list also includes rapper Common, political blogstar Arianna Huffington, columnist Frank Rich, outspoken potential first lady Elizabeth Edwards, gay rights activist Aaron Toleos, and environmentalist Phillippe Cousteau.

The issue also features an article on gays in the GOP, a holiday gift guide, a profile of Jennifer Jason Leigh, a Christopher Rice column calling out wannabe divas, and more. It hits shelves next week.
