Gay Star News shortlisted for a National Diversity Award

From activist Peter Tatchell to Trans Media Watch to GSN editor Tris Reid-Smith, the National Diversity Awards shortlist is out

Gay Star News shortlisted for a National Diversity Award

GSN is thrilled to announce that our editor Tris Reid-Smith has been shortlisted for the LGBT Entrepreneur of Excellence Award for his part in starting GSN.

Included in the shortlist are gay and trans activists and business people alike. Britain’s National Diversity Awards, sponsored by Microsoft, are designed to promote ‘unity in society’ and will be presented at a ceremony in Manchester on 21 September.

Tris said he felt his place on the final three for his category was shared with the whole Gay Star News team.

‘Everyone has been entrepreneurial to get GSN started including our investors, staff, clients and many more. I’m just so pleased it’s paid off for all of them with our incredible growth.

‘And that’s thanks to the wonderful support we’ve had from our readers and friends – who have believed in what we’re doing. So I’m pleased for everyone that we’ve got through to the final.’

Another person to be nominated as a Positive Role Model in the age category is Nathan Popple, a 14-year-old with cerebral palsy who has been working to make the north-east English city of Leeds more accessible to disabled people.

Popple told GSN: ‘I am so, so happy and excited to be a finalist. Lots of people have helped me with my campaign – my two mums Beryl and Sarah, my support worker Tilly were all there at the start.

The National Diversity Awards rewards all aspects of diversity within one ceremony including age, disability, gender, race and LGBT. You can find out the other categories and who made the shortlist here.
