AUSTRALIAN LGBTI AWARDS ANNOUNCE 2018 SHORTLIST



Courtney Act, Kyle Sandilands, Conchita Wurst and The Veronicas are just some of the names nominated for Australia’s biggest awards dedicated to celebrating the LGBTI community and their allies, the 2018 Australian LGBTI Awards, proudly sponsored by Celebrity Cruises.

Over 6,000 people were nominated across 16 categories, including Celebrity of the Year, Sports Personality of the Year, Ally, Brand and Marketing Campaign, Community Initiative/Charity and Inspirational Role Model.

Winners will be announced at a special red carpet gala dinner on Friday 2 March, 2018 at The Star, Sydney.

“2017 has been a rough year for the LGBTI community, we’ve had the legitimacy of our relationships debated in the public domain for months, advertisements and posters spreading hate and lies and the entire nation voting on our rights to marry, so the Australian LGBTI Awards are an opportunity for us to celebrate one another, our achievements and supporters”, said Australian LGBTI Awards Director, Silke Bader

There are two main groups to the awards, the Public Award Category and the Corporate Award Category. The Public Award categories are entirely decided by public vote. Voting for the below shortlisted nominees is now open at www.australianlgbtiawards.com.au.
