Nominations now open for 2015 David Kato Vision & Voice Award
November 20, 2014
Who inspires you? The secretariat of the David Kato Vision & Voice Award (DKVVA) is pleased to announce that the call for nominations for the 2015 award is now open!
The award celebrates the life and work of Ugandan human rights activist David Kato, who was murdered in his Kampala home in January 2011. To honor David’s legacy, the DKVVA was founded to recognize leaders who work to uphold the sexual rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex (LGBTI) people around the world.
Offered once every year to an inspirational individual who demonstrates courage and outstanding leadership in advocacy for LGBTI sexual rights, the award provides the recipient with a one-time grant of $10,000 to support their work. Nominations for the award close on 31 December 2015 and can be completed online in English, French or Spanish.
