Tim Cook, Caitlyn Jenner And Riccardo Tisci Top Time 100 Most Influential List

LGBT members Tim Cook, Caitlyn Jenner, and Riccardo Tisci have each topped this years annual 100 most influential list by Time Magazine.

Tim Cook makes it onto the list for another year running as the openly gay CEO of Apple. Disney CEO Bob Iger wrote a testimony to the business head as he said: “Behind his soft-spoken demeanor and Southern manners is a focused fearlessness that comes from deep personal conviction. Tim is committed to doing the right thing, in the right way, at the right time and for the right reasons. As CEO, he’s led Apple to new heights, and he continues to build a global brand that is universally recognized as an industry leader and widely respected for its values.”


Caitlyn Jenner marks her second consecutive year on the list for her continued work as a transgender activist. Public speaker on trans rights Wayne Maines wrote: “I have the greatest respect for her courage and commitment to truth. The courage that she displays is helping challenge society to change. I am so pleased that she has fulfilled her dreams and that she is now helping our children do the same.”


Riccardo Tisci may be the least recognised name of the three, but the fashion designer has been making moments in his industry for years. Donatella Versace wrote: “The next generation of fashion is so important to me. I love to watch the next big stars develop and to help nurture them whenever I can. Riccardo is so brave and fearless, I sometimes think he must have Versace blood somewhere in his body. He is more than just a friend to me—he is family.”


Among the three LGBT stars sat many gay rights advocates such as Ariana Grande, Mark Zuckerberg, Bernie Sanders and Nicki Minaj, to name a few. Read the rest of the list below!
