LGBT celebs including Olly Alexander, Ollie Locke, Ruth Davidson and Juno Dawson also feature.
Today the 2017 Pride Power List comes out to coincide with Pride in London. The definitive list of movers and shakers in LGBT Britain is produced by OutNews Global, sponsored by BNP Paribas and White & Case and published in the Guardian.
This year comedian and presenter Alan Carr has ranked the highest. The 41-year-old TV star has been on our screens for more than a decade, and is now more popular than ever. He has managed to achieve mainstream success, but is still a fervent supporter of LGBT rights and causes. This year he won LGBT celebrity at the British LGBT Awards and he is actively involved with both the Ben Cohen Stand Up Foundation and Albert Kennedy Trust Gala.
Pride Power List founder Linda Riley said: “Alan fully deserves this honour. I work with lots of celebrities in the LGBT world, and no one is more supportive of the gay community nor more willing to give their valuable time to good causes. He is always a delight – what you see is exactly what you get.”
Here’s who made the top 10:
1 – Alan Carr
2 – Sir Ian McKellen
3 – Graham Norton
