Le 101 personalità Lgbt più influenti in Inghilterra

Il risultato dell'Independent on Sunday vede un elenco di 101 personalità spiccare per potere e influenza nella società

Il quotidiano Independent on Sunday ha stilato la classifica Lgbt di 101 persone che hanno maggiore influenza nella società odierna. Il giornale ha anche rivelato quanto fosse difficile ridurre un totale di 4390 voci per sole 101 persone:

"Il risultavo rende onore a coloro che hanno lunghe e coraggiose storie nel battersi per la parità dei diritti, anche quando l'uguaglianza non era nemmeno legale"

Nell'elenco appaiono persone -adulti e più giovani- che sono la dimostrazione di come la loro vita privata non sia e non debba essere una barriera per il proprio successo nella in ogni ambito, privato e professionale. Questa lista compre pop star, politici, giornalisti e attori e personaggi che sono a capo di gruppi aziendali e imprenditoriali.

Nella top ten troviamo, ad esempio Sam Smith, esploso con il suo album In The Lonely Hour, e apertamente gay, in grado di conquistare le classifiche e raccontare le sue pene d'amore -con altri uomini- vissute in passato.

Qui sotto le 101 personalità, dalla prima all'ultima posizione:
