San Francisco Good Neighbor Equality Award
For over a decade, Equality California has recognized leaders who have made important contributions to our efforts to achieve equality at our annual Equality Awards events across the state.
Last year’s winner, Madeleine Lim, escaped persecution in Singapore, where it is still illegal to be openly gay, and moved to San Francisco, where she founded the Queer Women of Color Media Arts Project. She currently serves as QWOCMAP’s executive and artistic director, and as an award-winning filmmaker has had her work shown on PBS and at international festivals all over the world. The State Farm Good Neighbor Award winner is selected from public nominations, and honors grassroots activists working for LGBT equality.
We need your help to select the honorees! Equality California has partnered with State Farm Insurance to honor dedicated individuals in local communities who are working to make a difference in the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people with the Good Neighbor Award.
From your nominations we will select one Good Neighbor Award recipient in each of the San Francisco, Sacramento, Palm Springs, San Diego and Los Angeles areas who will be recognized on stage at the 2014 Equality Awards.
If your nominee is selected, you and a guest may receive complimentary tickets to see your nominee honored on stage at the San Francisco Equality Awards!
Deadline for nominations: Monday, March 17
