WHAT IS THE PRIDE POWER LIST?
THE DEFINITIVE GUIDE TO THOSE IN THE LGBTQI COMMUNITY – AND OUR ALLIES – WHO ARE DEDICATED TO WORKING TOWARDS TRUE LGBTQI EQUALITY AND INCLUSION
Started in 2012 the Pride Power List aims to celebrate those powerful, dedicated and wonderful people within the LGBTQI community. The people who do everything in their power to make LGBTQI life that little bit brighter.
While lesbian, bisexual, queer, trans and intersex people are more visible than they were 25 years ago – whether that’s within the realm of business, politics, the arts, the media, sport or anywhere else – in some circles, their voices remain marginalised, and their life experiences dismissed. Too many from our community have to work harder to smash through stereotypes and glass ceilings.
The list comprises of publicly nominated LGBTQI individuals who have made a difference over the past 12 months whether it’s through hours of campaigning, speaking at international events or writing for publications across the globe. The list is published on the day of Pride in London every year in The Guardian.
