Graeme Browning (Mitzi Macintosh) and Ken Davis will receive commendations at ACON’s Honour night.
The annual event to acknowledge people who have displayed exceptional commitment to and leadership in the GLBT community will be held on Thursday, September 24.
Graeme and Ken are both outstanding candidates for this acknowledgement and I congratulate them on their selection, ACON president Mark Orr said.
As Mitzi Macintosh, Browning has raised millions of dollars for GLBT charities, including almost $800,000 as the host of ACON’s weekly Bingay fundraiser. He also served as the creative director of the Mardi Gras Parade for three years and last year was inducted into the DIVA Hall of Fame.
Davis is a prominent activist who has fought for the gay and lesbian community since the 1970s when he co-founded Gay Solidarity. He was involved in organising the first three Mardi Gras festivals and has taken on advocacy roles, working for the Gay and Lesbian Immigration Task Force, the Gay and Lesbian Rights Lobby and the Australian Federation of AIDS Organisations.
