After being cancelled in 2020 and 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Honour Awards, the annual celebration of outstanding service and achievements in LGBTQ communities in NSW, returned to Sydney this year. Over 300 people gathered at the Ivy Ballroom in Sydney on Wednesday August 17, 2022, for the Honour Awards 2022, to celebrate and honour Australia’s unsung LGBTQ heroes, advocates and activists, organisations and long-standing allies of sexuality and gender diverse people. The Honour Awards were first held in 2007. The event is also a gala fundraising event for the state’s leading HIV and LGBTQ health organisation, ACON. This year awards were handed out in 10 categories and the winners were selected from a diverse pool of 35 finalists, drawn from over 200 nominations.
