Stars including Harry Styles, Lady Gaga, Courtney Act and more to be honoured 


Aussie pop prince Troye Sivan, Harry Styles, The Bi Life’s Courtney Act, musician MNEK and British Vogue editor Edward Enninful are among the celebs who have made the shortlist for this year’s Gay Times Honours.


The flagship event from Gay Times will take place in Liverpool on 8 November and will pay tribute to leading LGBTQ personalities and organisations.



Among the nominees is British Vogue editor Edward Enninful who has been shortlisted in the Entrepreneurship category, while Australian drag queen and personality Courtney Act has been nominated for the Media accolade.


Voices outside of the community who advocate for LGBTQ issues are vital for helping the community’s fight towards true equality.


With that in mind, Harry Styles, Brockhampton, Cupcakke, The 1975 frontman Matty Healy, and Lady Gaga have all been nominated for the Gay Times Honour for LGBTQ Advocate for using their platforms to champion LGBTQ people and raise awareness of LGBTQ issues in the last year.


Honourees will be recognised through specially commissioned paintings which will be unveiled in-front of an esteemed crowd on the night.


A full list of those nominated for the Gay Times Honours is listed below.


“Everyone on the shortlist should be immensely proud of the positive impact they’ve had on the lives of LGBTQ people,” Gay Times owner, James Frost, commented.


“The Gay Times Honours are unique because they recognise people and organisations from across public life who have blazed a trail for the LGBTQ community as well as the individuals and organisations who have worked hard to advance LGBTQ rights.


“We’re incredibly excited about the forthcoming ceremony and welcoming all of those on the shortlist to celebrate and reflect just how far we have come as a community.”


Established in 1984, Gay Times is Europe’s longest running LGBTQ magazine.


In 2017, the publication embarked on a significant rebrand with a commitment to amplifying queer voices from all over the globe.
