Sir Ian McKellen has presented this year’s David Kato Vision and Voice Award to an activist who successfully battled to overturn Belize’s anti-gay laws. The David Kato Vision and Voice Award is presented every year in memory of murdered Ugandan LGBT campaigner David Kato. This year, the award was presented by veteran actor and LGBT activist Sir Ian McKellen at the annual fundraising gala dinner of the Kaleidoscope Trust, which campaigns for equality for LGBT people around the world. Belizean activist Caleb Orozco was recognised with the honour, winning from a shortlist of five activists from Iraq, Nigeria, Kenya and Kyrgyzstan.
