Pink List 2013.jpg
The Independent on Sunday’s Pink List recognises the most influential LGBT people in the UK, and has been published every year since 2000.

Pink List 2000

The Pink List 2000 published in the Independent on Sunday on 6 August 2000, was the first of the IoS’s lists of the most prominent LGBT people in the UK, and contained 50 names.

"Thirty years ago, this list - which "outs" no one and includes only the names of those happy, or willing, to participate - would have been an exercise in journalistic "name and shame". Those featured would, in many instances, have felt obliged to resign from their places of employment, or at least to consider their position."[1].

Pink List 2010

For 2010, the judges included Ben Bradshaw, Clare Balding, Ben Summerskill, Greg Barker, Jane Czyzselska, Paul Jenkins, Simon Milton and John Amaechi.[4]

As well as the Top 101 (apparently missing number 68) there were separate lists of non-UK people ("Another Country"), "National Treasures", and a "Rogues Gallery".

For a list of winners, see Category:Pink List 2010

Pink List 2011

The Pink List 2011 was published in the Independent on Sunday on 23 October 2011.[5] As well as the Top 101 there were separate categories for "National Treasures", "Non-LGBT friends" and "Lifetime achievement award".

Top of the list was Elly Barnes.

The most surprising omission in the 2011 List was Peter Tatchell. According to Hugh Muir in The Guardian this was because "the Post-it note with his name was shuffled into an incorrect pile and nobody noticed until it was too late".[6]

Pink List 2012

The Pink List 2012 was published in the Independent on Sunday on 4 November 2012. The judges included Elly Barnes, Campbell X, Jane Czyzselska, Paris Lees, Ben Summerskill and Margaret Unwin.

As well as the Top 101 there was a separate categories for "Lifetime Achievement Awards"[7] and a separate list for "Journalists".[8]

Top of the list was Nicola Adams.

Pink List 2013

The Pink List 2013 was published by the Independent on Sunday on 13 October 2013. The judges included Heather Peace, Christine Burns, Kim Watson and Ben Summerskill.

"When the first Pink List was published in 2000, it was essentially a list of 50 influential people who were brave enough to be “out”. This year we received more than 1,300 nominations and had to reduce thousands of potential contenders to just 101. The judges decided that a Pink List contender can no longer simply be lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender and famous. They need to make a difference."[9]

Paris Lees came top of the list, with Clare Balding and Peter Tatchell in joint second place. As well as the Top 100, there were separate lists for "National treasures",[10] "Politicians",[11] "Ones to watch",[12] and "Friends to LGBT people".[13]
