“Last year’s event was a glittering affair for the inaugural National LGBTI Community Awards, and we have spent the last year working with other local NGOs to raise awareness of LGBTI issues that need to be addressed in our community,” says ARC’s president Dr Norman Shaw.

“Now, we look forward to celebrating all of the people who have made a tangible difference to the community in the past 12 months, and who will continue to do so in the years to come.”
