The Proud2Be Project has been nominated for the Community Organisation Award at The National Diversity Awards.
The ceremony celebrates some of the excellent and inspiring achievements of positive role models and community organisations from across the UK. The awards aim to recognise nominees in their respective ﬁelds of diversity including age, disability, gender, race, faith, religion and sexual orientation.
The project hosts a video campaign featuring Stephen Fry and last year’s Lifetime Achiever Award winner Peter Tatchell and hosts its own LGBT radio show. It also facilitates social groups and workshops and will be launching Totnes Pride on Saturday 14 September 2013.
Project founders Mat and Jon Price said: "We are thrilled that Proud2Be has been nominated for a National Diversity Award. We have spent the last year working on the project at our home in Devon and for our work to be acknowledged by such a fantastic initiative is an absolute honour"
The National Diversity Awards 2013 in association with Microsoft will be held at The Queens Hotel, Leeds on 20 September.
