Brandon Voss is a journalist and entertainment writer living in New York, NY, United States.

He is a contributing writer for The Advocate, a national gay news magazine, interviewing mainstream celebrities for the monthly "A-List" column. He also reviews New York theater for the monthly "Seat Filler" column on Advocate.com.[1][2][3]

As a contributing writer for Playbill, he has interviewed celebrities such as Hugh Jackman, Paul Reubens, John Leguizamo, Edie Falco, Ben Stiller, Hunter Parrish, Samuel L. Jackson, Angela Bassett, Kathie Lee Gifford, and The Book of Mormon (musical) stars Josh Gad and Andrew Rannells.[4][5][6][7][8][9][10][11]

In December 2006, it was reported that Voss was promoted from features editor to editor-in-chief of the now-defunct free New York-based LGBT weekly HX Magazine.[12][13] In September 2008, it was reported that Voss had stepped down from his position at HX after nearly four years with the publication to pursue freelance writing opportunities.[14]

Voss's "Big Gay Following" interview with Adrien Brody sparked mild controversy: While some readers felt Voss's line of questioning was inappropriate, others felt that Brody lacked a sense of humor.[15][16][17][18] DNA Magazine Online conducted a poll asking whether or not Voss "went too far."[19]

Chris Evans (actor) famously "outed" his younger brother, soap star Scott Evans (actor), in a January 2009 Advocate interview with Voss.[20][21][22][23][24]

Voss's August 2008 interview with Lady Gaga for HX was the pop artist's first cover story and the first interview in which she publicly discussed her bisexuality.[25][26][27][28]

Voss received a notable amount of attention on the blogosphere for his exclusive HX interviews with Jason Preston, former rentboy and longtime boyfriend of fashion designer Marc Jacobs.[29][30][31][32][33]

Personal[edit]

Voss is from New Orleans, LA. He was born on February 16, 1978. He attended Tulane University, from which he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in theater,[34][35] and where he performed in a number of stage productions.[36][37]

He is sometimes confused with a New York party promoter with the same name.[38][39]
