Lexington Fairness honored five community leaders who expressed their commitment to progressing lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) equality and fairness.

Those honored at the 5th Annual Fairness Awards included:
  • Ally for Fairness Award:  Aaron and Samara Baker
  • Jennifer Crossen Out for Fairness Award:  Troy Johnson
  • Fairness Leadership Award:  Jonathan Barker
  • Ernesto Scorsone Political Leadership Award:  Carol Denham, Darryl Denham and Zoe Chin
The recipients were chosen from a field of nominations that were submitted by the public and were selected by a committee of volunteer leaders from LGBT community organizations.

The awards kicked off a weekend of LGBT Pride celebrations, with the Lexington Pride Festival taking place on Saturday, June 30, at the Robert F. Stephens Courthouse Plaza.

The free event encompasses a day filled with music, food and vendors celebrating the rights of the LGBT community.
