The Virgin Holidays Attitude Awards, powered by Jaguar, is an annual celebration of all things LGBT, the community and its allies. They’re dedicated to honoring those who inspire and make change, make LGBT+ lives easier, influence and entertain, or quite simply give us life.
Among the winners was Princess Diana who was given a posthumous award for her groundbreaking AIDS activism. Prince Harry attended the event to accept the honor on his mother’s behalf. “She knew exactly what she was doing,” Harry told the crowd. “She was using her position as Princess of Wales, the most famous woman in the world, to challenge everyone to educate themselves, to find their compassion, and to reach out to those who need help instead of pushing them away.”
