The Newry Rainbow Community isThe Newry Rainbow Community is hosting the inaugural Pride In Newry Awards ceremony!
The Pride in Newry Awards will recognise and celebrate the positive impact of five years of the Pride In Newry Festival and parade, 2012 – 2016, on the lgb&t community in Newry City and across Newry Mourne and Down District.
These Awards recognise the outstanding contributions of individuals, groups and organisations that have made a difference to the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people over the past five years.
We want to showcase some of the great work, and people, that have over this time greatly increased the visibility, raised awareness and helped to portray lgb&t people in a positive way, breaking down barriers and challenging stereotypes and at the same time promoting a City and District that truly recognises and values diversity.
Thousands of people watch the Pride In Newry parade every year and it is the best ‘shop window’ for community groups, businesses and the organisations and make up the fabric of our society to get across a message of support for equality, inclusion and diversity.
The importance of these awards is that they are voted by our community, and the general public, to celebrate the ‘heroes’ that have challenged homophobia, biphobia and transphobia, are allies and role models for the community and have helped make a difference to the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people.
Voting for those nominated in the ten Award Categories is open!!
