The Gay Times Hon­ours recog­nise those who have had a tremen­dous im­pact on what it means for us to live openly and freely as LGBTQ peo­ple in modern Bri­tain

To high­light those who’ve paved the way for jus­tice, vis­i­bil­ity and equal­ity, nine Hon­ours are named posthu­mously af­ter LGBTQ trail­blaz­ers and or­gan­i­sa­tions whose im­pact is still felt to­day.

Cre­ated in close col­lab­o­ra­tion with Gay Times Cu­ra­tor, Gemma Roll­sBent­ley, and the nine Honourees them­selves, these art­works recog­nise and re­flect on the con­tri­bu­tions of the in­di­vid­u­als, or­gan­i­sa­tions and in­sti­tu­tions be­ing hon­oured. We’d like to ex­tend a spe­cial thank you to Gemma for the pas­sion and en­thu­si­asm she has brought to the Gay Times Hon­ours.

Fi­nally, thank you to our panel of ed­u­ca­tors, ac­tivists and cre­ators who vol­un­teered their time and who worked hard to en­sure com­pre­hen­sive rep­re­sen­ta­tion of the LGBTQ ex­pe­ri­ence across the short­lists and Honourees: Si­mon Mill­son, To­pher Camp­bell, Polly Shute, Dr. Seb Buckle, Jac­qui Gavin, Jon Hu‹ett, Si­mon Black, Philippa Drew CB, Ryan Butcher and James Frost.
