The Virgin Holidays Attitude Awards 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.
Adam Rippon earned the Sport Award for making history by becoming the first openly gay Winter Olympian. “His openness was a major step forward for LGBT+ awareness in sport,” the publication writes.
Rippon was one of four winners to receive their own cover. Others lucky enough to grace their own cover were George Takei, Jess Glynne and Boy George who snatched the Icon Award, Music Award and Music Icons Award respectively.
