Team LGBTQ+ has been named the recipient of this year’s GAY TIMES Honour for Outstanding Impact presented by SKITTLES®.
SKITTLES® GAY TIMES Honours delivered by Gorillas celebrates the individuals and organisations who have had a profound effect on the lives of LGBTQ+ people over the past 12 months.
RAYE announced Team LGBTQ+’s win in front of an audience full of LGBTQ+ community members and allies on 19 November at Magazine London in the heart of the capital.
Team LGBTQ+, a sporting category dedicated to queer Olympic and Paralympic athletes, brought home over 50 medals in total at the 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
The number of LGBTQ+ athletes participating in the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games was greater than those who took part in all previous summer events, setting an unprecedented record for representation.
Team LGBTQ+ instantly brought queer visibility to a global level and are leading the way in boosting LGBTQ+ participation in mainstream sporting events – an impact that is nothing less than outstanding.
A spokesperson for SKITTLES®, who presented the GAY TIMES Honour for Outstanding Impact, said: “SKITTLES® is so excited to be partnering with GAY TIMES Honours to recognise the Outstanding made by Impact Team LGBTQ+ at this year’s Olympic and Paralympic Games.
“They pioneered queer representation in sport in a way that has never been seen before and we are proud to celebrate their achievements alongside GAY TIMES.”
