TIME magazine on Thursday revealed the TIME 100, the magazine’s eighth annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world. Featured in this year’s list is out actor and singer Chris Colfer.

Dianna Agron writes about Colfer saying, “Chris, 20, lives by extreme truth, speaking out against the epidemic of bullying that he, too, faced in high school. The honesty that he in­fuses into his “Glee” character, Kurt, leaves you reeling.”

“[The TIME 100] are artists and activists, reformers and researchers, heads of state and captains of industry. Their ideas spark dialogue and dissent and sometimes even revolution.” writes Assistant Managing Editor Radhika Jones.
