GAY TIMES Honours is one of the world’s largest celebrations of LGBTQ+ community and culture. 

The safety and security of the event is of utmost importance. Based on developing world events, we have sought additional expert advice alongside our usual robust procedures. With utmost caution and consideration for the safety of our team, crew, presenters, winners, performers and partners, we have made the difficult decision to no longer stage this year’s live event and in-person celebration.

We understand the disappointment this will cause and we share in your disappointment. 

We will be working diligently to ensure that all guests are informed. We appreciate your understanding and support during this challenging time.

We would like to acknowledge and thank GAY TIMES team members, crew, presenters, winners, performers and partners who have worked tirelessly on this year’s event. 

GAY TIMES Honourees will be announced digitally and we look forward to celebrating the incredible winners who have contributed to the LGBTQ+ community.

We will be recognising a collection of incredible figures in the LGBTQ+ community, as well as launching our Honours edition of GAY TIMES Magazine.

GAY TIMES Honours is produced in support of GAY TIMES’s philanthropic initiative Amplifund, in partnership with GiveOut.

The initiative raises money to fund LGBTQ+ community groups and organisations in territories where queer people face significant social and political challenges to their identity.

Our work to date has supported organisations in Iraq, Jamaica, Armenia and more. If you’d like to make a donation to Amplifund, you can do so by clicking here.
