The City of West Hollywood is now gathering nominations for its 2016 Rainbow Key Awards. The awards event is expected to take place in June 2016.
The city has, since 1993, presented Rainbow Key Awards to people who have made outstanding contributions to the gay and lesbian community. These contributions, whether by an individual or a group, may be in many forms, including the arts, community action, humanitarian action, sports, medicine, armed services, leadership potential, benefit to the global gay and lesbian community, or in other ways. Past honorees have included activists, artists, civic leaders, educators, community organizations, and more.
Nominations will be reviewed by the City of West Hollywood’s Lesbian and Gay Advisory Board, and awards will be determined by the West Hollywood City Council.
