The City of West Hollywood has begun soliciting nominations for its 2017 Rainbow Key Awards, which recognize people who have made outstanding contributions to the lesbian and gay community. The awards event is anticipated to take place in June 2017.
Since 1993, the city has presented Rainbow Key Awards to individuals and groups that have gone above and beyond in their service to the LGBT community. Contributions have come in many areas, including the arts, community service, humanitarian action, sports, medicine, armed services, leadership potential and benefit to the global gay and lesbian community. Past honorees have included activists, artists, civic leaders, educators, community organizations and many others.
Nominations will be reviewed by the city’s Lesbian and Gay Advisory Board and awards will be determined by the West Hollywood City Council. Nomination forms are due by 5 p.m. on Feb. 1.
A two-page nomination form is available online as a downloadable PDF file. A hard copy of the form can be requested by contacting Jeff Book, staff liaison to the city’s Lesbian and Gay Advisory Board at (323) 848-6471.
