The British LGBT Awards are proud to campaign throughout the year in addition to hosting the British LGBT Awards each year.

Campaigns which we are currently working on include:

2024

Pride. Purpose. Progress…

The “Pride. Purpose. Progress…” campaign, running from June to August 2024, aims to celebrate and amplify the strides made in LGBTQIA+ inclusion. This initiative highlights the inspiring efforts of organisations and individuals who work tirelessly behind the scenes to support and uplift the LGBTQIA+ community.

Through dedicated Q&A features, the campaign will spotlight initiatives and personal journeys that have significantly contributed to advancing LGBTQ+ rights and acceptance. The stories will be shared on our website and across social media platforms, including LinkedIn, Instagram, and Facebook.

Campaigns which we have previously ran or supported include:

2023

AKT QueerJoy campaign

This is #QueerJoy, sharing words of resilient wisdom from one generation to the next.

We’re on a mission to spread #QueerJoy across the UK for everyone’s benefit.

Because in a collaborative workshop with akt’s youth (a charity supporting the UK’s LGBTQ+ young people aged 16-25) we unearthed a heartfelt request and need from them to actually see & hear from more queer role models ‘who’ve been there, done that’ and are still/now smiling!

2017 - 2019

LBTQWomen

In 2016 only 8% of corporate nominations came from lesbian or bisexual women. Due to the number being low a survey was undertaken to understand this demographic better, and in October 2016 LBQ Women was created.

It is an initiative that is designed to give more visibility to lesbian and bisexual women in the workplace, to provide role models and show that women can be out and successful.

In 2017 35% of corporate nominations came from lesbian and bisexual women, which is great news!

• 85.66% said more senior LBW role models would benefit.
