Feather Awards 2015 Nominees Announced

Hard to believe it has been 7 years since the launch of the Feathers! Well, 7 years on and the industry's most irreverent awards are still going strong. The nominees for this year's ceremony were announced in Parktown, Johannesburg this Wednesday. 

The 7th Annual Chevrolet Feather Awards were launched with some few changes. This year the awards are themed ‘Rainbow Africa’ and will see the inaugural African Feather of the Year Award being presented to an African LGBTI activist.

The African Feather Of The Year Award, an award sponsored by partners The Other Foundation, will be awarded to Africans who continue to inspire and uplift the LGBTI community. 

Another notable change this year is the direction of the Role Model of the Year Award. That award will now go to an LGBTI person or organisation whose work empowers and uplifts the LGBTI community. 

“Celebrating our success is always a nice thing but the work that goes into LGBTI programs is far from over. In years to come we will realize the dream of living in a rainbow Africa, free from the killings, the rapes and we will be free to love whomever we love. Through this platform we wish to not only to celebrate our nominees and winners but to continue igniting dialogues around issues of sexuality and the LGBTI. Until then, cheers to the 201 nominees and winners.” says the awards' founder Thami Kotlolo.
