Who are the most influential lesbian, bi and queer women in the UK?


A new day is dawning for lesbian, bi and queer women working in entertainment, politics, culture and business. Those who are LGBT are finding new forms of opportunity and success every day, as the UK moves towards a more inclusive climate for gender and sexual minorities.

The DIVA Power List brings together the most influential lesbian, bi and queer voices in the UK. It is not confined or defined by economic status, education, or skin colour, but by the actions taken to influence and enact positive change across our community.
