Leaders and Advocate staff tell us the five LGBT people who influenced them the most.
None of us springs fully formed into the people we become. Even though we share commonalities, LGBT Americans aren’t influenced on our journey by the same people. There might be some overlap, but the leaders, performers, athletes, and our own editors on these pages recognize a wide range of influences, from actors to activists to athletes, filmmakers, feminists, friends and first-kisses, mentors, and media insiders. Some of those who have impacted today’s influencers the most are woven throughout this issue. Now tell us, who influenced you?
