Celebs are so excited about this Friday’s NatWest British LGBT Awards, they are willing to take long haul flights to get there (although we’re guessing Caitlyn Jenner won’t be flying economy).

 

The international reality star, Olympian and trans rights activist has confirmed that she will be attending the star-studded event presented by Alan Carr and Mel Sykes.

 

In addition to enjoying the awards ceremony, she will be promoting her new book The Secrets Of My Life. Although she has at times been considered a controversial figure, she is a passionate campaigner for trans rights. As the event draws closer, speculation is mounting that she may be recognised by The NatWest British LGBT Awards for her activism.

 

Other confirmed guests include Graham Norton, Clare Balding, Callum Scott, Rylan Clark-Neal and Sue Perkins.

 

Co-founder of the British LGBT Awards, Sarah Garrett MBE said: 

“The celebrity guest list shows the level of support from famous faces for the on-going issues faced by the LGBT community. We’re looking forward to a fantastic night.”

 

Alan Carr, who is co-hosting the evening with Mel Sykes, revealed:

“It is a fantastic event that does so much to celebrate people in the LGBT community who are making a real difference, as well highlighting the straight allies who give their much-needed support. And in 2017 these awards are more important than ever. I am so proud to be part of it.

“It is going to be a brilliant night and I am looking forward to reuniting with my Mel on stage to present the winners. It is going to be glitzy and fabulous affair with some very special moments.”

 

Now in their sixth year, the British LGBT Awards celebrate the individuals and organisations which work to improve the rights of LGBT people.

 

The NatWest British LGBT Awards will be streamed live at britishlgbtawards.com from 9pm on Friday 12 May.
