Feather Awards Nominations 2010


The Second Annual Feather Awards were announced on the 28th September 2010. The most famous black gay guy in Mzansi, Somizi Mhlongo, MC'ed the event. Looking at the list of nominees this year I was a bit relieved that they were a bit "neutral" in the calibre of people who get nominated.

My issue with these awards last year was the fact that they seemed to serve personal egos instead of celebrating individuals who have had a positive impact in the gay community. Needless to say the awards lived up to their promise to be "fabulous". This year however they promise to be bigger and better... we'll have to wait and see how that pans out
