About the British LGBT Awards
The British LGBT Awards has been recognising LGBT+ achievement and inclusion for half a decade, borne of the want to promote greater acceptance and reward those who have demonstrated a commitment to equality, opportunity and fair treatment for all.
The British LGBT Awards represent a growing base of 21,000 LGBT+ voters and currently has the largest media reach of any LGBT+ awards event in Europe, helping to increase awareness of LGBT+ issues and encourage greater acceptance.
To reflect the great achievement of recognition afforded through nominations, each category will feature a ‘Top 10’ of the nominees who have received the highest number of legitimate entries making each Top 10 a winner in their own right.
The Top 10s will go to public vote for an overall single winner for each category on 18th February 2017 and will be announced at the ceremony on 12th May 2017.
Quote from the sponsor, Natwest
“The British LGBT Awards are now ranked amongst the most important annual celebrations of diversity and inclusion in the UK and we’re proud to be headline sponsoring them again for the fifth year running.
Fundamentally, they acknowledge and reward those who deserve recognition for their outstanding commitment to the LGBT community.
However, these awards are not just about celebrating the nominees and winners; they’re about creating a cultural shift towards acknowledging the benefit of inclusion and Natwest want to be a part of that. Nominations ahead of next year’s award ceremony are now open and we’re encouraging as many people as possible to get involved.”
