Out magazine released its 8th annual list of the most powerful figures in the LGBT community this week and the choice for number one may surprise...absolutely no one.

Sports journalist Robin Roberts. Out magazine ranked her as the tenth most powerful member of LGBT community.

Naturally, Queen of all Media Ellen DeGeneres took the top spot for the second year in a row.

The magazine's editors explained their decision by pointing out that Ellen's daytime show continues to break its own ratings records, her famous Oscars selfie became the stuff of Twitter legend, and - perhaps most importantly - "everybody loves Ellen."

Runner-up on the list may be less famous, but he's certainly no less successful. Out dubbed Apple CEO Tim Cook "the most powerful gay man America."

Someday, the following list will not be necessary.

Someday, celebrities will not need to make any sort of official announcement regarding their sexuality because, quite simply, no one will care and society will be fully accepting of all orientations.

But that day hasn't arrived yet, for reasons explained so eloquently by Ellen Page when she came out as a lesbian on Friday:

Perhaps these stars can make a difference. Maybe they can positively influence others struggling with their sexual identity, using their public platform to push for tolerance.

So, with all that in mind, we join many in Hollywood in saluting Page and other famous folks who are very out and awfully proud:

An emotional Amanda Knox is vowing to fight her murder conviction once again, saying defiantly "this is wrong" and that she will never willingly return to Italy.

A jury found Amanda Knox guilty yesterday in the 2007 slaying of Meredith Kercher, which she spent four years in prison for before being released on appeal.

Prosecutors in Italy retried the case, however, and Knox was convicted a second time. She has been in the U.S. since her 2011 release, however.

She wasn't present for the retrial, and Friday morning, she struggled to hold back tears as she railed against the verdict, saying: “This is wrong.”

Appearing on Good Morning America, the Seattle native expressed outrage at the verdict and 28 year sentence the Italian justice system handed down.

She told Robin Roberts she is “going through waves of emotions” and said she couldn’t believe what she was hearing when the decision was read.

Great news this week out of Good Morning America.

Robin Roberts will resume her full-time duties with the program following Labor Day, making the announcement in an interview with Vanity Fair and joking about how she's managing to sneak in one more four-day work week due to the holiday.

The anchor underwent a bone marrow transplant last September after she was diagnosed with a rare blood disorder.

She returned to Good Morning American in February, after taking more than six months of medical leave and has slowly been working her way back up to regular status, even interviewing Michelle Obama along the way.

She also hosted ABC's red carpet coverage of the Academy Awards and received the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at ESPYs in July.

We send Robin our very best and, wait, if you listen closely... that sound you hear is Matt Lauer crying.
