You’ve been voting in your thousands for the last two months, and now we are thrilled to announce the shortlist for the inaugural DIVA Awards, celebrating awesome and inspiring individuals in our community!
Voted for by you, the DIVA Awards are split into 12 categories, paying tribute to the lesbian, bisexual, trans and queer people making a difference in all walks of life. We will also be inducting one special person into the DIVA Hall of Fame with a Lifetime Achievement Award.
Winners of the DIVA Awards 2017 will be named at our #DIVA250 party at Cafe de Paris on Thursday 23 March. Hosted by the one and only Rachel Shelley, there will be glitz, glamour and celebrity guests, as well as an exclusive performance from Heather Peace!
Linda Riley, co-publisher of DIVA, said: "We are delighted to be celebrating #DIVA250 with such a fantastic party and awards. It is only fitting for DIVA's 250th issue that we celebrate in style.”
