The 2012 Awards

The HistoryMaker Award is presented to an individual or organization
whose lifetime achievements have had a significant
and positive effect on Boston's GLBT communities.

This year we will honor
Grace Sterling Stowell
Executive Director
The Boston Alliance of GLBT Youth (BAGLY)



From her work with the Boston Alliance of GLBT Youth (BAGLY) and her involvement in transgender activist and policy-making with the Massachusetts Transgender Political Coalition (MTPC), Grace has had a tremendous influence on generations of GLBT youth throughout Boston and Massachusetts, and around the country through her involvement on a national level in advocating for GLBT youth programs and services. Grace has made a significant and unforgettable contribution to history that is deserving of special recognition.


The Lavender Rhino Award is presented to an emerging activist
or organization whose impact on the local GLBT communities
deserves recognition.

This year we will honor activist and community-leader Chris Mason, founder of Join the Impact MA, the Driving Equality film project, and the non-profit organization Progressive Approach, Inc.
