How do you discover the LGBT social media influencers among us? By finding out who’s who in the LGBT UK Leaders & Influencers Social Media Powerlist.

The list was originally established to focus on senior business leaders and expanded in 2015 to include senior and influential politicians, campaigners, public sector and other notable LGBT people and other advocates and supporters of LGBT rights with strong connections to the UK.

It’s an impressive group of movers and shakers – and the changing look of the list indicates an expanding and inspiring sense of what it means to have influence in 2016.

Each week The LGBT UK Power 250 recognises the most inspiring social media accounts so you can follow them, join the community and learn more.

Klout scores are used to rank influencers. Klout takes into account social media activity and engagement across many social networks including Twitter, Facebook, Youtube, LinkedIn and Instagram.
