Nominations have officially opened for the PinkNews Awards 2019.

In October, PinkNews will celebrate the best and brightest in LGBT+ equality, following on from the success of 2018’s blockbuster ceremony that saw winners including Ed Miliband, Will Young, A Very English Scandal and the founders of Stonewall.



This year, for our seventh annual PinkNews Awards, we’re ramping up our awards countdown earlier than ever—with nominations open for the following categories:

  1. Business Equality
  2. Public Sector Equality
  3. Community Group
  4. Third Sector
  5. Role Model

Last year, PinkNews awarded Business Equality to Macquarie Group, Public Sector Equality went to the Royal Navy and Royal Marines, Community Group was won by Cara-Friend and The Rainbow Project, and Third Sector Equality was won by the National Trust.

For 2019, PinkNews is introducing a brand new award—Role Model.

The Role Model Award will recognise one person who has made an indelible difference in the fight for LGBT+ equality around the world in the last year. The award is open to role models ranging from activists, politicians, entertainers and more.
