The LGBTQA Awards, sponsored by the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Resource Center, was created to celebrate the achievements of the LGBTQ campus community at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

The LGBT Resource Center would like to acknowledge students, faculty, and staff for the support and visibility they bring to the LGBTQ community on campus. We recognize that living in your truth or showing up as an active ally is a daily choice too many of us have to make in the face of indifference and intolerance.

To recognize those who have gone above and beyond in service and support of the LGBT Resource Center and the LGBTQ community, the following awards will be presented at the 2017 Lavender Congratulatory. Award recipients will be selected by the LGBT Resource Center staff.
