The city of West Hollywood will host its annual Rainbow Key Awards tonight at Plummer Park’s Fiesta Hall, located at 7377 Santa Monica Blvd.
There will be a reception at 6 p.m., followed by an awards program at 7 p.m.
Since 1990, the city of West Hollywood has presented Rainbow Key Awards to recognize people and groups who have made outstanding contributions to the gay and lesbian community.
Past honorees have included activists, artists, civic leaders, educators and community organizations. Contributions, whether by an individual or a group, may be in many forms, including the arts, community action, humanitarian action, sports, medicine, armed services, leadership potential, benefit to the global gay and lesbian community, or in other ways.
Nominations for Rainbow Key Awards are received by the city of West Hollywood’s Lesbian and Gay Advisory Board (LGAB), which makes recommendations to the West Hollywood City Council, which selects award recipients.
This year’s Rainbow Key Awards honorees are Jon W. Davidson, national legal director of Lambda Legal, Mikel Gerle and Brendan Rome, organizers of TRIBE, Our Lady J, author, performer and staff writer for the Amazon Studios television show “Transparent”, Jimmy Palmieri, city of West Hollywood Human Services Commissioner and founder of The Tweakers Project and Elaine Suranie, a women’s rights advocate, actress and director.
