This year’s LCR Pride Awards have been moved from February to April with the deadline for nominations extended.
People now have more time to enter the LCR Pride Awards 2023 after the date of the event was changed and the nominations deadline extended.
Originally due to take place on Thursday, February 23, the event will now be held on Thursday, April 6. This decision was taken to allow the awards to align with wider city plans and the run-up to the Eurovision Song Contest coming to the city.
Jointly sponsored by Liverpool FC and Merseyrail, the LCR Pride Awards are delivered by LCR Pride Foundation and will take place at the world famous Anfield stadium.
Andi Herring, chief executive and co-founder of LCR Pride Foundation, said: “This year is going to be a huge year for the Liverpool city region, with Eurovision 2023 providing a global platform for the city.
“We want to ensure that people from our city’s amazing LGBT+ community are visible to the world and celebrated for their amazing work. Moving the awards to the spring aligns with the city’s exciting plans. It also puts the event and its nominees at the centre of the action in the lead up to Eurovision.
“The date move also means there is more time to nominate, so if there is someone you think deserves recognition, please get nominating.”
Nominations are now open for 14 categories including LGBT+ Friendly Business of the Year, Business Person of the Year and LGBT+ Community Group. New categories for 2022 include LGBT+ Workplace Group and LGBT+ Youth Group. Deadline is now Tuesday, February 28.
