Jason Momoa has landed a spot on the A100 list. The A100 List honors the most impactful Asians and Asian American & Pacific Islanders (AAPIs) in culture every May for AAPI Heritage Month. The list is put out by Gold House and is in its second year.
“We know the world’s divided; when traditional institutions fail to unify us, it’s incumbent on our cultural leaders–founders, creative voices, nonprofit organizations, and businesses–to show us a brighter, more productive path. It’s always been this way: cultural shifts have always preceded policy changes. The A100 List embraces the pinnacles of integrative cultural achievement to unify not only the Asian diaspora but all communities,” a Gold House spokesperson said in a statement.

It’s officially May 1, which means the start of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month and the arrival of Gold House’s second annual A100 List, which spotlights the most influential members of the AAPI community and their awe-inspiring accomplishments. For those who don’t know, Gold House is a non-profit collective of trailblazing Asian founders and leaders whose mission is to champion fellow Asians and ensure their cultural impact gets recognized. The A100 List, which the company kicked off last year, highlights Asian people from all different fields, including fashion, technology, business, entertainment, and more.
Among the other honorees are many Allure favorites, including Golden Globe-winning Killing Eve actress Sandra Oh, K-pop sensation BTS, our first-ever digital cover star Priyanka Chopra, Game of Thrones heartthrob Jason Momoa, Crazy Rich Asian stars Gemma Chan and Awkwafina… we could go on and on.
