The London Lighthouse Gay Times Honour (The Fight Against HIV & AIDS)

The London Lighthouse was an independent AIDS hospice, initiated by Christopher Spence and his partner, and which opened against an incredible amount of opposition.

The London Lighthouse was at the epicentre of the epidemic and was most notably supported and visited several times by Princess Diana, Dame Elizabeth Taylor and Sir Elton John.

The memorial garden contains the scattered ashes of many people who died at the Lighthouse.

The short list for the London Lighthouse Gay Times Honour is as follows:

On Saturday 18 November 2017, Gay Times will present Gay Times Honours – an evening that will recognise organisations and individuals who have had a tremendous impact over the past 50 years on what it means to live openly and freely as LGBT+ people in Britain today.

The Gay Times Honours will be presented at the National Portrait Gallery, which was founded in 1856 to promote, through portraits, the appreciation of men and women who have made and are making British history and culture, and which has a long history of providing a platform for the voices of the LGBT+ community.
