THE HONOUR AWARDS: CELEBRATING OUR COMMUNITY
The Honour Awards is an annual event which acknowledges outstanding service to, or achievement within NSW’s lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) community.
Established in 2007, the Honour Awards provides NSW’s LGBTI community with an important opportunity to recognise excellence, and celebrate achievement within our community, as well as the difference that particular community members make in our lives.
Nominations open in late July and close late August. The Honour Awards Ceremony will be held on Wednesday 27 September at the Ivy Ballroom Sydney.
