I thought you might be interested in the names that the Advocate picked to be voted on.  You can pick from 5 to 40, but no more than 40.  I took the survey already, I'm proud of myself because I actually knew a lot of the names on the list (besides names like Ellen's & Rosie's :-)  ).

I know that on the site that I copied the link from there was some grumbling about no Trans persons being represented and I think that they have a right to be upset about that.  But there is a place at the very bottom where you can put in a name of someone.  I put in Sylvia Rivera  http://www.glbtq.com/social-sciences/rivera_s.html

So let me know what you think about the list...good, bad, indifferent. 

Here's the survey:  http://www.advocate.com/takeSurvey.asp?surveyID=19

Actually there was a trans person on the list.  Patrick Califia is trans...he's an author and has a column in Curve magazine  I have one of his books listed on my  bookshelf.  He asked readers if they wanted him to resign as he made his transition since it was a womans magazine...the answer was no.  Thanks for sharing this survey.  There were so many good names it was hard to limit how many you picked!
