London Trans+ Pride has been named the recipient of this year’s GAY TIMES Honour for Future Fighter presented by Hinge.
Drag Race UK finalist Bimini announced the win in front of an audience full of LGBTQ+ community members and allies on 25 November at Magazine London in the heart of the capital.
With trans rights under threat more than ever in both the UK and abroad, London Trans+ Pride was created in response to the injustices trans+ people continue to face.
Its peaceful protest through London this year saw more than 20,000 people attend, marking London Trans+ Pride’s largest-ever turnout as trans+ people and their allies march in solidarity through the capital together.
“We still feel that more needs to be done to include and show solidarity with trans+ people in the wider LGBTQ+ community,” the collective told GAY TIMES Magazine this month. “Whilst this award is important and a sign of progress, we still need to be embraced further into the structure of LGBTQ+ organisations.”
Established just four years ago, London Trans+ Pride is showing no signs of slowing down as it advocates for and platforms the community.
GAY TIMES Honours sponsored by Meta Quest celebrates the individuals and organisations who have had a profound effect on the lives of LGBTQ+ people over the past 12 months.
This year’s event saw a star-studded lineup of performers including Tove Lo, Cat Burns, Grag Queen, Kai-Isaiah Jamal and Keanan, as well as a DJ set from Princess Julia.
The new digital edition of GAY TIMES magazine spotlights this year’s winners and is available to read now on the GAY TIMES app, Apple News +, Readly and Flipster.
