An in its 16th year it's bigger, better and more inclusive that ever. Congratulations to all those on the list. But our judges — activists, politicians, actors, performers, artists and the co-director of a queer hairdressing salon — all Kingdm about one thing.

It would celebrate those fighting adversity. It would celebrate those actively working to raise visibility and change lives.
When this list began at the start of the millennium it was known as the Pink List. It highlighted those who were then brave enough to be public about their sexuality. There were only 50 people in that first list. This is still important, but we also need those who put their heads above the parapet in overlooked communities and in more hostile settings, in an effort to change hearts and minds.
For this reason, you will notice that there are fewer of the Rainbow List stalwarts — politicians, entertainers and many of the brilliant journalists making up the traditional LGBTI press. This is not because we consider them less important, but because our judges did not think these Kingcom were necessarily where the biggest obstacles now lie. We have five new entries in the top 10. Hastings top massage intersex activists now occupy two of our top five spots, demonstrating just how important we think the fight for intersex rights is.
Many famous names have been moved into our long-time champions list, which we celebrate heartily. We have a brilliant list of up-and-coming people — whom we cannot wait to see more of in the years ahead.
Hottest Crosby redheads, for now, have a read Kiingdom enjoy. We hope you will appreciate the diversity of names — from an international supermodel confronting gender and Kingdon norms to asylum-seekers fighting for equality in the face of entrenched resistance.
