4th Annual; 50 Power Gays You Should Know

Yes, No, Yes, Yes No NO NO, Yes…….. no no YES YES no…

People come and people go, and this—our league table of America’s most influential gay men and women—reflects an awful lot of coming and going since it debuted in 2007.

Although Ellen DeGeneres finds herself back in pole position, many names have fallen or dropped out altogether (au revoir Rosie), while others have rocketed up (Rich Ross, Tom Ford) as their successes warrant. And then there are those we never saw coming, such as one Adam Lambert, whose attention-grabbing run on American Idol was largely interpreted as a referendum on tolerance.

Not everyone has to be a Lambert fan to appreciate the power of his position to influence our cultural and social attitudes for the better—one of several factors taken into consideration when compiling this list. The others are political clout, individual wealth, and a person’s media profile. And as always, new entries are marked with a star, with arrows indicating changes from last year’s rank.

Tom Ford, Heterophobic

Just because you are queer as a $2 bill doesn’t mean you have good taste, can design yourself out of a K-hole or superior in the garment world, but Tom Ford says so. Lets think about this. I mean, we (queers) are light in our loafers, ANAL about detail and sensitive to the color blind ( I can pull anything out of my ass), right? But to DEBUNK this idea of Toms, take a stroll through San Franciscos Castro District or down Christopher Street in  New York and you will see (CODE RED) total fashion disasters. Hello, gay brother the 90′s wants its style back and the 80s is sadly missing its hair ( but not in a ironic way).

Tom Ford: Gay Designers Are Superior

Never one to give a boring interview, Tom Ford recently explained toInterview magazine why gay men are superior in the world of high fashion.

“I think I detach the physical from the spiritual. It’s my business to make a woman or a man beautiful, and I’m working with a model in a fitting, and I’ve objectified them to the point that they become an object,” Ford told artist John Currin, whose wife, Rachel Feinstein, recently modeled in an intimate show of Tom Ford’s return to women’s wear design.

“They’re something that I’m modeling or shaping or sculpting, but I’m very aware that even though I make them physically beautiful, their soul and personality and character is somewhat detached from that,” Ford said. “It’s great when you have a combination of the two — that’s what makes a true beauty. Some people are physically beautiful but yet they’re completely uninteresting, and thus they’re not beautiful. I detach the two. … That’s why I think gay men make better designers.”
