Pink List 2013.jpg
The Independent on Sunday’s Pink List recognises the most influential LGBT people in the UK, and was published every year from 2000 to 2013. In 2014 it was re-branded as the Rainbow List.

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 (actually 49, or rather 48, since Nick Brown occurs twice).

"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]

The list is in alphabetical order rather than numbered.

For the list of 48 people, see Category:Pink List 2000.

Pink List 2001

Pink List 2002

Pink List 2003

Pink List 2004

Pink List 2005

Pink List 2006

Top of the list in 2006 was Sir Ian McKellen.[2]

Pink List 2007

Top of the list in 2007 was Russell T Davies[3][4]

Pink List 2008

Top of the list in 2008 was Evan Davis[5]

As well as the top 101, there were separate lists of "Britain's glamour couples", "The view from abroad", "Young, gifted and gay", and "Unsung heroes".

For a list of the unsung heroes, see Category:Pink List 2008 Unsung heroes.

The "Glamour couples" were:

Pink List 2009

Top of the list in 2009 was Peter Mandelson.[6][7]

For a partial list, see Category:Pink List 2009

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.[8]

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:

Pink List 2011

The Pink List 2011 was published in the Independent on Sunday on 23 October 2011.[9] 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".[10]

For the list of winners, see:

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[11] there was a separate category for "Lifetime Achievement Awards"[12] and a separate list for "Journalists".[13]

Top of the list was Nicola Adams.

For the people included, see:

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."[14]

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 "The Judges"[15], "National treasures",[16] "Politicians",[17] "Ones to watch",[18] and "Friends to LGBT people".[19]

There were considerably more trans people in the lists than in previous years.[20]

For the people included, see:
