Rubbing Shoulders With Celebrities

09 May 2022

As you know, this June we’re going to be rubbing shoulders with the Glitterati at the British LGBT Awards 2022! We’ve been shortlisted in the “Brand or Marketing Campaign” category, and the competition is FIERCE – we’re up against the Royal Navy, Lego, Liverpool FC, Sky, and more; household names, every single one.


We’re absolutely honoured that our work has earned us a place in such prestigious company – but we’re not going to lie, we’re also VERY excited about the company we’ll be keeping!


Pop stars Dua Lipa, Lil Nas X and the always-lush Olly Alexander join the absolute idol that is Lady Gaga – yes, you read that right – and in the sports category, we’re really hoping that we get a chance to meet Megan Rapinoe and Tom Daley!


The Celebrity Ally category also includes some star-studded names – musicians Alicia Keys and Ellie Goulding, sporty types Jurgen Klopp and Lewis Hamilton, and one of our favourite Doctors, Jodie Whittaker.


All in all, there are some huge, HUGE names on the list – and we simply can’t wait to get our glad rags on and join them on the red carpet!


You can see the full shortlist below, and of course if you have a good cause supporting the LGBT+ community, and would like to join our incredible Rainbow Lottery family, you can find out more and sign up here:
