The Proud Scotland Awards™is back for its second year in 2020 – Saturday 3rd October is the date set.

Join us then for a spectacular evening where we recognise the creme de la creme of Scotland who champion Diversity and Inclusion and the LGBTQI+ community.

Diversity Honoured

The Proud Scotland Awards™  awards are designed to celebrate the LGBTQ+ community by recognising the outstanding work and commitment of individuals and organisations within and supportive of our community in Scotland. They honour and encourage all, north to south, who stand up for diversity and equality.

Supporting Pride
