A newly formed Donegal LGBTQ+ organisation has been shortlisted for GALAS award.
Included in the shortlist is Bród na Gaeltachta (Donegal Pride Festival), which is nominated for LGBTQ+ Event of the Year Award. The festival was held in Falcarragh for the first time earlier this year.
The awards celebrate outstanding contributions to the LGBTQ+ community in Ireland.
Organised by the NXF, the National LGBT Federation, in partnership with GCN, Ireland’s national media and press for the LGBTQ+ community, the awards will take place in The Round Room at the Mansion House on Saturday, 7th October.
The GALAS Awards will be hosted by Panti Bliss and Lisa Connell.
As Ireland’s only LGBTQ+ awards programme, the GALAS acknowledge the effort made by individuals, organisations, and companies who work towards a better future for LGBTQ+ people in Ireland.
This year, there are a total of 13 categories, from ‘Outstanding Company’ and ‘Ally of the Year’ to ‘Event of the Year’. Members of the public nominated their choices, which were subsequently reduced to a shortlist, chosen by LGBTQ+ advocacy organisations.
