I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

THE 50 MOST INFLUENTIAL LGBT PEOPLE IN MEDIA

"It was hard enough picking a single most influential LGBT person for this list (and, in the end, it was a tie), so you can imagine the trouble we had narrowing down our picks to 50 and then ranking each.

To do it, first we asked a number of people on this list, and some who were considered along the way, to vote. We left it open to interpretation as to exactly what "influential" meant to them. Rachel Maddow has redefined MSNBC, for example. Meanwhile, Harvey Levin's TMZ is breaking stories that define the whole news cycle.

Respondents from the media lined up more frequently behind Maddow as the most influential. But it's hard to ignore Levin's influence, with the Ray Rice story only the latest example of his site's talent for exposing celebrity misdeeds that have broader lessons and consequences.


A few caveats about who is eligible for the list: Only those media figures who are publicly out are included. And as much as we appreciate our colleagues in the LGBT news world, this list consists of reporters and editors who produce for mainstream outlets on largely non-LGBT beats."
