Mandelson topples Evan Davis from Sindy 'pink list'

More than a dozen figures from broadcasting and publishing are named in this year’s Independent on Sunday “pink list” – a list of the 101 most influential gay and lesbian people in the UK.

Last year’s number one, Today presenter Evan Davis, slips to 12th place – replaced at the top by business secretary Lord Mandelson.

Culture secretary Ben Bradshaw is in eighth place. But he tells the Independent on Sunday: “We will only have completed the journey when people find these sorts of lists completely ridiculous, and I don’t think we’re there yet.”

Also named in this year’s list:

Five chief executive Dawn Airey
BBC sport presenter Clare Balding
Tory blogger Iain Dale
Independent columnist Johann Hari
Monocle publisher Tyler Brûlé
Times columnist Matthew Parris
Telegraph assistant editor Andrew Pierce
Attitude editor Matthew Todd
Time Out journalist Paul Burston
Telegraph corporate affairs director Guy Black
BBC Radio 4 announcer Alice Arnold
