The Gender Justice Awards showcases the activism of Trans, Gender Queer, Gender Non-Conforming, Non-Binary, and Allied activists, artists, writers, and community members who have made incredible strides for trans, gender queer, and gender non-conforming people.

The Gender Justice Awards are a community nominated awards program. Who receives awards is decided by the awards committee, which includes past recipients and members of GJL’s staff and board of directors. The Gender Justice Awards are an opportunity for us to come together to celebrate the dedication, talent, and brilliance of our communities.

Prioritizing Underrepresented Groups.

Gender Justice League seeks to elevate the profile and voices of communities members who are not as often celebrated even within trans communities. This means that our awards committee will be looking to elevate BIPOC, youth and elders, those with disabilities visible and invisible, immigrants and refugees, low-income/working class activists, and feminine spectrum people, women, and girls. We especially would like to see nominations of people from these groups.

Because the Gender Justice Awards is a community nominated awards program, we need YOU to nominate awesome community leaders and members, peoples’ whose work you’ve have witnessed and believe should be recognized! Stay tuned for information on how to make nominations for 2022.
