The 2019 Time 100 list is here, and it’s pretty damn queer.
The list of influential people, curated annually by Time magazine with write-ups from other celebs, is broken down into five categories: pioneers, icons, artists, leaders, and titans. This year’s list certainly didn’t disappoint: Pose showrunner Ryan Murphy and starring actress Indya Moore were both included, with bios written by icons Jessica Lange and Janet Mock, respectively.

But wait, there’s more! Bisexual pop diva and A Star Is Born actress Lady Gaga made the list (with an endorsement from Celine Dion!), alongside out author Marlon James; gay pop art icon David Hockney; and Indian public-interest litigators Arundhati Katju and Menaka Guruswamy (featured in the video below), who fought valiantly to decriminalize gay sex in India in 2018.
As for allies? Plenty of big names made the roundup, including Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who’s vowed to champion LGBTQ nondiscrimination protections and make the Equality Act a legal reality for all Americans.
