Pride Northwest seeks nominations for 2011 Awards and Honorifics

Here’s a chance to spotlight the queers in our community who you think deserve attention and praise. Think certain folks or organizations aren’t represented in the mainstream gay community. Here’s a small chance to change that as Pride Northwest is calling upon the community to submit nominations for Awards and Honorifics for Pride 2011.

They seek nominations for the following:

  • Parade Grand Marshall
  • “Spirit of Pride” Award
  • Youth Award (22 years old or younger)
  • “Pride In Action” Award (for volunteer work in service to the community).

Last year’s awards and honorifics went to Darcelle XV (Parade Grand Marshall), Kevin Easton (“Spirit of Pride”) and Ben Brown Jr. (“Pride In Action’). We did not have a Youth Award in 2010.

If you know of someone that would be a worthy recipient of one of these awards or honorifics, please submit that name, along with a minimum of 200 words explaining why this person should be recognized by Pride Northwest, to no later than Sunday, February 27th.

The 2011 Parade theme, as well as this year’s Parade Award categories, will be announced shortly.

Thank you for participating in the process and for helping Pride Northwest to honor the true heroes of our community.
