Cook, who claimed the top spot three years ago, came out gay in 2014, becoming the only openly gay CEO in the Fortune 500.

DeGeneres maintained her second place position on the list from last year.

Rounding out the top five are MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow, CNN host Anderson Cooper and series creator Ryan Murphy (Glee, American Horror Story).

Newcomers to the annual list include Olympian/television personality Caitlyn Jenner (No. 8), filmmakers Lana & Lilly Wachowski (No. 22), Baltimore mayoral candidate DeRay Mckesson (No. 23), writer/director Jill Soloway (No. 25), actor/singer Jussie Smollett (No. 28), comedian Kate McKinnon (No. 31) and Internet celebrity Tyler Oakley (No. 48).
