Each year the Lesbian and Gay Foundation runs their ‘Homo Heroes‘ awards to recognise and celebrate the heroes of the LGBTQ communities. This year there are bi-related nominations in four out of the seven categories: most appropriate given that the awards night is happening to day before Celebrate Bisexuality Day on September 23rd. Many of BiUK’s own heroes are included in the shortlists…
Natalya Dell has been shortlisted for volunteer of the year for her fantastic work organising BiCon 2011 and many previous bi events, as well as her major role in UK bi activism.
Marcus Morgan has been shortlisted for Role Model. Marcus set up bi visibility group The Bisexual Index and recently spoke for bi people on TV’s Vanessa show, as well as organising bi events and speaking for bi community for many years.
Jen Yockney has been shortlisted for Community Champion for all her wonderful work editing the longest running bisexual magazine, Bi Community News magazine, organising the long-running social & support group BiPhoria, and so much more.
Bi Community News magazine itself has been shortlisted in the community organisation category.
Do your bit towards bi visibility and vote today! Voting is open until September 7th.
BiUK will be there on the night and will report back here.
