The Gay Times Hon­our for Life­time Achieve­ment

Since com­ing out in 1988, Sir Ian McKellen has be­come a pi­o­neer of the queer move­ment that helped see the re­moval of crim­i­nal laws and dis­crim­i­na­tory so­ci­etal at­ti­tudes. A prom­i­nent ac­tor, pub­lic fig­ure and con­tin­u­ing ac­tivist, he was knighted in the 1991 New Year Hon­ours for ser­vices to the per­form­ing arts. Awarded the Free­dom of the City of Lon­don in Oc­to­ber 2014, the soon-to-be 80 year old has helped shape the lives of mil­lions of queer peo­ple to­day.
