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.
