Established to commend individuals who have championed the rights and visibility of all human beings, regardless of gender or condition, this prestigious accolade recognizes outstanding contributions in various fields.

Among the winners is Marc Angel, Vice-President of the European Parliament, who has earned the title of “Captain of Equality” due to his relentless advocacy for human rights and the LGBTQ+ collective.

The list of awardees showcases leaders from diverse spheres, ranging from political activism to the audiovisual industry. Notable artists and performers, including Aquaria, Dana International, Jedet, and Vanesa Martín, are recognized for their efforts to promote LGBTQ+ visibility in Spain.

Additionally, the awards acknowledge the valuable contributions of organizations such as OII Europe and the United Nations World Tourism Organization for their commitment to LGTBIQ+ representation and innovation. Furthermore, firms like BBVA are commended for their focus on diversity, with Ízaro Assa de Ambilia receiving recognition for her contributions as a director in this area.

The Alan Turing LGTBIQ+ Awards ceremony will be hosted by Samantha Hudson, and the captivating scenography will be crafted by the talented digital artist José García Vallés, also known as Cachito Vallés. This year marks a significant change, as the event will be open to the public with ticket reservations available at the capital’s theater.

Culture & Business Pride’s previous honorees have included prominent figures like former Icelandic Prime Minister Jóhanna Sigurdardöttir, the Harvey Milk Foundation, Taiwan’s non-gender minister Audrey Tang, and former Vice-President of Costa Rica Ana Elena Chacón, among many others.
