Ellen DeGeneres Tops Out's Gay Power List

Posted Tuesday April 15, 2014 6:00 PM GMT

Out magazine has just released their annual Power List, and Ellen DeGeneres is once again at the top.

The talk show host beat out last year's number one, Apple CEO Tim Cook, for the honor which recognizes the most influential LGBT voices in the country.

Explaining their decision, the magazine wrote, "Everybody loves Ellen, and that's one of the reasons she's regained the top spot. 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. And her star-studded Oscars selfie almost shut down Twitter when the pic became the most retweeted ever."

Other notables on the list include actress Ellen Page, who made headlines when she came out in February, "How I Met Your Mother" alum Neil Patrick Harris, "Good Morning America" anchor Robin Roberts, singer a style="color: #FF5AAD; text-decoration: none" href="/frank-ocena/story" target=""> Frank Ocean and reporter Anderson Cooper.
