The Honour Awards were first held in 2007. They celebrate outstanding services to, and achievements within, LGBTQ communities in NSW. Organised by AIDS Council of NSW (ACON), Honour is also a gala fundraising event for ACON’s community heath initiatives delivered.

“The Honour Awards are about celebrating how LGBTQ people from all walks of life and organisations are helping or inspiring others in our communities,” ACON CEO Nicolas Parkhill says.

The 2022 event is the first since the pandemic began.

“Not being able to celebrate the many outstanding achievements of our communities for the past two years has been difficult and disappointing,” Parkhill says. “But the Honour Awards are back in 2022 and we couldn’t be more excited about shining a light on our communities’ many wonderful achievements.”

Nominations span nine categories, covering health, entertainment, community, HIV, media, business, visual arts, youth and community service sectors on the Honour Awards website. They close on 29 June.

“The Honour Awards celebrate those in our communities whose names don’t make the headlines, as well as our more high-profile achievers,” Parkhill continues. “So, we’re keen to hear about people and organisations that have made a difference – whether it be in the lives of a few, or whose contributions are more wide-ranging.”

Nominations are now open. The Honour Awards ceremony takes place on 17 August at the Ivy Ballroom (Sydney).
