THE FOURTH GALAS WILL BE HELD ON FEBRUARY 23RD 2013 IN THE WESTIN HOTEL, DUBLIN, TICKETS ON SALE NOW
Welcome to the fourth year of the Gay and Lesbian Awards (GALAs).
The GALAs were set up by the National Lesbian and Gay Federation to honour lesbians, gay men, bisexuals and transgendered people and organisations for their contributions to Irish society, both north and south of the border.
The awards are also to honour politicians, employers and others who are committed to advancing equality and social acceptance for LGBT people in Ireland. This year there will be 15 GALAs awarded.
We are inviting you to nominate people and organisations who you feel should be awarded. The nominations procedure is simple. All you have to do is click on each category and tell us who you would like to nominate and why. You can nominate as often and in as as many of the categories as you like.
The longlist created by your nominations will the be given to LGBT organisations across the country, who will be charged with the task of shortlisting three final nominees in each category. The winners of the Person of the Year and International Awards are chosen directly by the NLGF. The winner of this year’s Irish Artist/Entertainer of The Year will be picked by a public vote. The overall winner of the other 2012 awards will be chosen by the board of the National Lesbian and Gay Federation.
Let’s honour those who are working to make life better for all of us…!
