Who Are the Most Powerful LGBT People in America?

Find out which power bottoms are on top HERE.

From a release:
For the second year in a row, Tim Cook has secured the number one spot on the list. Since coming out publicly in 2014, the Apple CEO has vocally supported diversity, most recently donating iPads and Macs in 29 states as part of a $100 million commitment to improve technology in public schools with minority students. Once intensely private, Cook appeared last September on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to explain why he decided to discuss his personal life telling the host, “It became so clear to me that kids were getting basically discriminated against, kids were even being disclaimed by their own parents, and that I needed to do something.”  
Ellen DeGeneres maintained her second place position on the list from last year and was also recently named one of Forbes most powerful women in the world. The Emmy-winning talk show host has had a phenomenal year including what many view as a highlight from last season of The Ellen DeGeneres Show when she confronted former Olympian Caitlyn Jenner on her views on marriage equality. The list continues with MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow holding on to her number 3 spot from last year, while CNN host Anderson Cooper and American Horror Story’s Ryan Murphy round out the top 5. OUT also welcomes numerous newcomers to the annual Power List including: TV personality/Olympian Caitlyn Jenner (No. 8), filmmakers Lana & Lilly Wachowski (No. 22), social justice activist and mayoral candidate DeRay Mckesson (No. 23) writer/director/producer Jill Soloway (No. 25), actor/singer Jussie Smollett (No. 28), comedian Kate McKinnon (No. 31), and Internet celebrity Tyler Oakley (No. 48)
