This year’s honorees were Jovon Tyler, who was given the Don Hrachovy Lifetime Achievement Award; Ian Haddock, winner of the Bayard Rustin Civil Rights Award; Transgender Education Network of Texas won the Kirsten Capps Social Conscience Award; and Commissioner Lesley Briones was presented with the Eleanor Tinsley Ally of the Year Award.
