All the winners from the Attitude Awards 2016, in association with Virgin Holidays

By Will Stroude

Monday night’s Attitude Awards in association with Virgin Holidays saw some of the biggest names pack out London’s 8 Northumberland Avenue to celebrate the great and good of the LGBT+ community and its allies.

Supporting the Elton John AIDS Foundation for a fifth year, our annual awards are dedicated to honouring those who inspire and make change, make LGBT lives easier, influence and entertain, or quite simply give us life.

Attitude Awards winners are those who use their platform to show how talented and diverse our great community is, and, whether they identify as LGBT+ or not, take the time to fight our corner.
