City of Cleveland LGBTQ+ Heritage Day
Cleveland’s LGBTQ+ Heritage Day takes place during the month of October in honor of LGBTQ+ History Month. It is a day for the community to honor individuals who have made significant contributions to the vitality and betterment of Cleveland’s LGBTQ+ community in the areas of Advocacy & Activism, Health & Wellness, Public Service, Arts & Culture, LGBTQ+ Legacy, Rising Leader, and Workplace Inclusion.
In order to respect the privacy and safety of individuals who will be publicly honored, your nominee must be an out member of the LGBTQ+ community. We strongly encourage community members to re-nominate past nominees. There are many highly qualified individuals who have been nominated, but have not yet won an award. Past nominations will be taken into account in the selection process. Individuals who have won an LGBTQ+ Heritage Day Award in the past will not be considered for another award. Nominations of past winners will be respectfully omitted. Nominations for 14th Annual City of Cleveland LGBTQ+ Heritage Day Awards have now closed.
