Voting has begun for The LGF Homo Heroes Awards 2014

Publish Date: 29/07/2014

The Lesbian & Gay Foundation (The LGF) are pleased to announce that public voting for the Homo Heroes Awards 2014 is now open and the top three nominees for each category have been shortlisted.

Hundreds of people have taken the time to nominate their heroes – individuals, groups and organisations they feel have helped to make a difference to their communities over the past year.

The LGF’s Homo Heroes Awards, supported by Barclays, and now in its fourth year, provide an opportunity to celebrate those that have challenged homophobia and biphobia, are role models for the community and have helped make a difference to the lives of lesbian, gay and bisexual people.

Voting opens at 12 noon on Wednesday 30th July and closes on Wednesday 24th September 2014. Winners will be announced at an awards ceremony on Tuesday 7 October 2014 to coincide with the 50th Anniversary of the Campaign for Homosexual Equality, which The LGF will be marking – further details to be released soon so keep an eye out on our website.
