Navajo Awards Calls Out for Nominations

The Navajo Merseyside & Cheshire LGBTIQA Chartermark Annual Awards has confirmed its venue and is calling out for nominations for its annual awards.

The event will take place 1st October at Liverpool City College’s Art Department and will be Tony Griffin’s last year as Chair of the organisation.

As well as celebrating its biggest ever list of winners, several individual awards will also be presented, including one in honour of trans activist Imogen Christie, who passed away in July this year.

Speaking about the event, Tony Griffin, said: “Navajo is run by volunteers and over 14 years we have seen some amazing changes in the practices of all our Chartermark partners. So, I’m certain that at some point you will have benefitted from those ‘good practice changes’.

“This year we have our biggest list of winners ever, as well as individual awards like the Navajo Champions award for unsung heroes and sheroes, the Navajo Next Generation Award, and – to celebrate the life of our dear friend – we have The Imogen Christie Trans Visibility Award.”

The organisation is inviting nominations, which can be made anonymously if preferred, as well as inviting new volunteers to support its work and become assessors. 

Tony continued: “Please come and show your support for an ever-growing group of dedicated people who are dedicated to improving both employment practices and services for LGBTIQA folk. Come and enjoy seeing this year’s winners. 

“As it’s my last year as chair, I’d also like the chance to say goodbye to all the folk who have helped over all these years.”
