NOMINATIONS OPEN FOR 4TH ANNUAL GLORIAS
(Gay & Lesbian Outrageous, Ridiculous and Ignorant comment Awards)
Labor Member of the NSW Legislative Assembly, Penny Sharpe, today announced that nominations are open for the 2013 GLORIAs.
Now in their fourth year, the GLORIAs are an annual event that shines a light on the outrageous, ridiculous and ignorant comments that GLTBI people and their families experience every day.
"Every day GLTBI people and their families are subject to homophobic and transphobic comments from people in public life,” Ms Sharpe said.
"These awards are a chance to turn the tables and put the focus back on to those people making discriminatory comments.”
Hosted by special guest David Marr, this year awards will be given in six categories - Media, Sport, Politics / Law, Religion, Silliest GLBTI & International.
