Equality Texas seeks nominations for inaugural Ally Awards; ceremony set for June in Dallas

Equality Texas, the statewide LGBT advocacy group, announced today a call for nominations for its first Ally Awards. Via survey, the organization will collect nominations of individuals, businesses and civic leaders/groups, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity/expression. You’ll be able to nominate one of each, and the process continues through April. Fill out the survey by going here.

“We want to actively involve as many Texans as possible in this statewide nomination process,” Equality Texas Executive Director Dennis Coleman said. “Texas is a big place, so to ensure that we’ve heard from as many folks as possible, we’re fully leveraging the power of the world wide web.”

The winner will be announced in May with the organization’s inaugural Ally Awards ceremony set for June 22 at The Vendome in Dallas. Tickets for the event are available for purchase.
