Hi Reader, welcome to the forum and thanks for the post.

These awards are very welcome - gay people are too seldom represented in a positive light and we need far more positive role models in our community. In addition, countless people are making major contributions to various sectors of the community without being recognised.

Nominations (including a motivation) for these awards must be made by 18 August, preferably by email to didentertainment@webmail.co.za or by SMS to the number given by reader (083 429 1439).
