Ellen DeGeneres, Ellen Page, and Frank Ocean Top OUT’s Power List (VIDEO)
Once again, Ellen DeGeneres is the most powerful celebrity in the LGBTQ community in America!
The 56-year-old host and comedian took the number spot on Out Magazine’s 2014 Power List, which ranks the most influential LGBTQ voices in America.
“Everybody loves Ellen,” Out wrote on their site. “In March, The Ellen DeGeneres Show shattered its own 10-year ratings record in the episode that immediately followed her Academy Awards hosting gig, which also gave the awards its best ratings since 2004.”
Not to mention Ellen also broke Twitter with her now infamous — and most retweeted ever — selfie, which featured celebrities like Angelina Jolie, Meryl Streep, Jennifer Lawrence, and Bradley Cooper among others.
Also on the list — and for the first time ever — is Ellen Page, who recently came out this past February. Ellen also recently introduced actor and transgender activist Laverne Cox at the GLAAD Awards and named her as Ellen’s personal hero.
Other notable celebrities include singer Frank Ocean (42nd), Robin Roberts (10th), everybody’s favorite silver fox Anderson Cooper (14th), Michael Sam — the college football player from Mizzou who recently came out — (9th), Neil Patrick Harris (7th), Rachel Maddow (3rd), and Apple CEO Tim Cook right behind Ellen (2nd).
Congrats to Ellen DeGeneres, Ellen Page, Frank Ocean, and everyone else who made the list!
