A few weeks before we enter Pride Month this June, Entertainment Weekly is unveiling its upcoming cover celebrating the LGBTQ people of Hollywood.

"Taking Hollywood by storm! These LGBTQ storytellers and icons are creating unforgettable work in TV, movies, music, life, and so much more! Take a peek into how they landed a spot on our June cover," the magazine tweeted, sharing the cover, which is illustrated by Jack Hughes.

The cover features drawings of a number of LGBTQ Hollywood figures, including Janelle MonĂ¡e, Freddie Mercury, Ricky Martin, Laverne Cox, Kristen Stewart, Lil Nas X, Ryan Murphy, Cynthia Nixon, RuPaul, Elton John, Ellen Degeneres and more. (There's also...a brick, likely referencing the Twitter debate about who threw the first brick at the Stonewall riots in 1969.)

"As an LGBTQ+ artist, I know how important representation in the media is," Hughes told EW of his creation.

The magazine goes on to tease that the issue will feature interviews with director Greg Berlanti, comedian Hannah Gadsby and musician Hayley Kiyoko.
