The Dazed 100 list is back! This is your guide to the people whose names you need to know in 2018 as amazing social media personalities and influencers.

The new list includes names from South Korea to South Africa, Tokyo to Tallinn, including the likes of ten-year-old “drag kid” Desmond is Amazing, Korea’s first openly-gay K-pop idol Holland, and trans activist and model Munroe Bergdorf. Meanwhile, groups like Justice4Grenfell and the #NeverAgain movement represent the current surge in political empowerment amongst today’s youth on social media.
