This is your last week to have your voice heard in this year’s LGBTQ Nation Heroes.
The editors at LGBTQ Nation picked 40 nominees in eight categories who we thought best represented what it means to be a hero in the community. They are people who selflessly helped others, represented LGBTQ people with dignity, or fought for freedom and equality.
They are people who got laws passed even as so many lawmakers were out to get LGBTQ people – especially trans youth – this past year. They are people who spoke out as conservatives brought back the age-old “groomer” libel. They are people who showed that the LGBTQ community is diverse and fierce and strong and proud.
This is also a chance to read about the nominees, since so many people do so many great things.
The best part about LGBTQ Nation’s Heroes is learning about the nominees, so take some time to read about them before voting. Read about them here:
