The previous cover stars include Elvira, Elliot Page, Law Roach, Governor Jared Polis, and Symone.

In the interview, DeBose talks about being an Afro-Latinx queer woman creating inroads for the unrepresented.

"I am a Black-identifying biracial queer Afro-Latina," she said. I say this frequently, and some people don't really get it, but most people do.... I am America. I am just damn near every member of every marginalized community possible."

She also talked about West Side Story, PBS's Wicked in Concert, the importance of art and theater in today's political climate, coming out and stereotyping, and more.
