Out Magazine announced it’s 7th annual Power List, ranking the top 50 gay men and women  “whose power and prestige is instrumental in influencing the way Americans think about, and engage with, the world.”

This year, number 32 was Ken Mehlman. As Out Magazine puts it, “As well as being on the board of the American Foundation for Equal Rights, the group behind the brief, he has deployed his skills to help win victories for marriage equality in New York, Maine, Maryland, and Minnesota, and his influence can only grow as Republicans continue to play catch-up with public opinion on gay rights.”

Other notable people who made the list were Chad Griffin, head of the Washington DC based Human Rights Campaign, Sen. Tammy Baldwin, D-Wis, Reps. Mark Takano, D-Calif.,David Cicilline, D-R.I., and Jared Polis, D-Colo.
