Help give bi visibility a boost from your armchair by voting in this year’s Homo Hero awards!
The shortlists for the annual awards have been revealed, with one prominent bi activist making the cut this time as Jen Yockney is shortlisted for LGB Role Model of the Year.
Jen is editor of Bi Community News, the bimonthly bisexual magazine that celebrates 18 years of publishing this September. She is also at the helm of BiPhoria, the UK’s longest-running bisexual group, giving a rare social-support space to bis and those who think they might be bi.
Lately she’s been revamping the september23.bi.org website, a hub of information about Bi Visibility Day, the annual bisexuality awareness day which has been marked since 1999.
The Homo Hero awards are run by the Lesbian & Gay Foundation, the UK’s largest LGB health charity.
21 people or organisations are nominated across 7 categories – you can vote for some or all of the categories. Two years ago there were three bi community activist nominees shortlisted and one bi project, but last year none made the list.
