New Year LG_T Honours

The New Year’s Honours list today picks out four LGBT activists.

Jay Stewart, co-founder of Gendered Intelligence and Jenny-Anne Bishop were each honoured with the OBE for services to the trans community.

Jenny Broughton, who founded Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (FFLAG), was given the MBE, while Nigel George Warner was awarded an MBE for international work on lesbian and gay rights through ILGA-Europe.

So we at least know some neat categorisation – MBEs for lesbian and gay rights activists; OBEs for trans community activists. Maybe next year her Maj will recognise bi work and we will find out what letters acknowledge bi volunteering these days?
