LGBT Nation’s ‘Newsmaker of the Year’ voting ends this week

Every year, we nominate ten individuals who made headlines over the past twelve months to be our Newsmaker of the Year. This year’s crop of potential winners are standouts in their field and in the LGBT community. While one nominee is a group of people instead of an individual, we felt that collectively they deserved to be lifted up and potentially honored.

Here’s a quick roundup of our nominees and their accomplishments that put them on this year’s list.

Vote for your choice in the poll below. Voting will remain open until December 31.

Who should be LGBT Nation's 2017 Newsmaker of the Year?
