The Leeds LGBT Awards, The Owlies.
The Owlie awards celebrate and congratulate individuals and groups who have made outstanding contributions to the Leeds LGBT community.
This year’s Owlie awards ceremony will take place on February 18th 2014. After two fantastic years at The Alea Casino we have sadly had to find a new venue this year as The Alea Casino closed down not long after last years awards which was a sad loss to Leeds and we would like to thank Sarah Louise Walker and all the team for their amazing support of The Owlies. We have found what we hope will be an equally great venue. It does already have one added bonus of being much closer to Lower Briggate. This year’s Owlies will be held at The Marriot Hotel.
The reputation of Leeds as a diverse, welcoming and safe destination for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people from around the world continues to grown thanks to a huge amount of dedicated people in Leeds who give their time to organise events such as Pride, run support services, perform, entertain, run specialist media services and generally ensure that the community fulfils its potential.
The Owlie winners are voted for by the public and this year’s event will once again be the biggest event of its kind in Yorkshire. A huge array of singers, performers and presenters will ensure that the entire event is a stylish celebration of the vital work undertaken in the city.
This Year’s Owlie Awards will be presented once again be hosted by The Infamous Marky Mark Scott & Kira, The Voice Of Angel. The event will be open to anyone who wants to join us in this celebration of our much loved scene. More details about the awards evening will be announced soon.
