Nominations Open for StandOUT

Nomination Form

In 2013, Vancouver Pride Society launched the Legacy Awards to recognize outstanding contributions within our local LGBTQAI2S+ communities. Remarkable individuals were recognized for their contributions in nine different areas.

In 2017, the Legacy Awards evolved into the StandOUT Awards. This change recognized that we have many outstanding youth and emerging leaders who are still creating their legacies while doing amazing work. Award recipients are now recognized in six broader categories, allowing for more diverse applicants.

Recipients are entirely community nominated - we plan the party, you pick the nominees!
