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."
The list is in alphabetical order rather than numbered.
For the list of 48 people, see Category:Pink List 2000.

Pink List 2011
The Pink List 2011 was published in the Independent on Sunday on 23 October 2011. 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".

- Category:Pink List 2011 Non-LGBT Friends
- Category:Pink List 2011 Lifetime Achievement Awards

Top of the list was Nicola Adams.

Pink List 2013
- "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."
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", "National treasures", "Politicians", "Ones to watch", and "Friends to LGBT people".
There were considerably more trans people in the lists than in previous years.
Stephen Fry criticised the list in 2010 for its portrayal of Louie Spence as a "gay stereotype", whose 15 minutes of fame was already running out..
The list was also criticised as being unsystematic in its compilation. The Huffington Post columnist "The Guyliner" complained of the 2012 list that "[n]o complicated formulae accompany any piece about the list to tell you how this influence is calculated", and that "it is nothing more than an inventory of names" .
