Here are the 2019 Feather Awards Winners

The 11th annual Feather Awards event was held on Thursday, 16th October, and extends to Saturday, October 19th. The Zalebs in attendance were looking oh, so fly (not all of them though)!

The Feather Awards are dedicated to celebrating the LGBTIQ community through arts. The nominees for the 2019 awards had been announced in August this year.

Four new categories were then added onto the programme namely: Best Rainbow Parenting, Best LGBTIQ Student Movement, Best LGBTIQ Initiative in the Public Sector, and Best LGBTIQ Initiative in the Private Sector.

Media personality Moshe Ndiki was one of the hosts this year, alongside Rami Chuene and Pabi Moloi.
