A Portrait of Excellence: Inside the Gay Times Honours at the National Portrait Gallery

Morgan Hill-Murphy

The Gay Times Honours recognise those who have had a tremendous impact on what it means for us to live openly and freely as LGBT+ people in modern Britain.

There’s much to be said about the enduring contributions of the individuals and organisations amplified by their inclusion in the Gay Times Honours, but celebrated queer writer Armistead Maupin perhaps sums it up best: ”The world changes in direct proportion to the number of people willing to be honest about their lives.”

At a special ceremony hosted by Drag Race star Jinkx Monsoon and Frieda Slaves at the National Portrait Gallery in London, nine Honours were given out to individuals and organisations.

In a bid to highlight those who’ve paved the way for justice, visibility and equality, the Honours are named posthumously after LGBTQ trailblazers.

Those honoured on the night include April Ashley MBE, GMFA, Switchboard, EastEnders, Rikki Beadle-Blair MBE, and more.
