Cory Wade


Cory’s main objective is to promote fearlessly authentic self-love through a variation of artistic mediums. He is most widely known for appearing on multiple seasons of ‘America’s Next Top Model’ both as a contestant and later as a recurring guest host. As the first openly gay male contestant ever to compete on ANTM, Cory has used his televised platform to take a strong socio-political stance in support of LGBT equality.

He has been published in the Huffington Post, Buzzfeed, People, Elite Daily and others in various articles about gender non-conformity as well as general queer culture in today’s society. Before his reality TV stint, Cory’s focus was on a career in live theater entertainment. He studied musical theater at Point Park University and has performed as “Angel” in multiple equity productions of Jonathan Larson’s RENT.

Cory is also a singer/ songwriter currently in the process of recording his first album with London based pop-music producer, Alan Glass. Look forward to following Cory’s musical career in the first quarter of 2017!
