Yesterday saw the return of the 2024 PEUGEOT Attitude Pride Awards, this year held at Raffles London at The OWO.

The eighth instalment of our event, hosted by TV legend Rylan, celebrated the great and good of the LGBTQ scene, from everyday heroes to four star names: our Pride ICON Award winners

To Wolfgang Tillmans, Adele Roberts, Paul Sinha, Le Grande Dame and all our winners: thank you for all you’ve done for our community!

Darren Styles OBE, Publisher of Attitude magazine, commented: “The PEUGEOT Attitude Pride Awards 2024 have once again shone a spotlight on the incredible work being done within and for the LGBTQ+ community.

“This year, we’re thrilled to celebrate 10 remarkable individuals who embody the spirit of pride, resilience, and progress. Their stories and achievements inspire us all and remind us of the power of visibility and authentic self-expression.”

Here is the story of the PEUGEOT Attitude Pride Awards, in 14 pictures…

Since rising to fame on the The X Factor, Rylan has mastered the art of live TV – and so, becoming the unflappable face of our event came easily to the star.

Looking star Russell is an owner of some of iconic photographer Wolfgang’s works. Our third Pride ICON Award winner said on stage: “For a country that prides itself [on] design, and art, and music, as a huge economy… I just never understood the logic of the last 10 years, to cut arts and music education from the curriculum. I can only hope the new government will listen.”

The family of the late Alice Litman honoured

Eurovision’s Bambie Thug presented to Caroline and Kate Litman, the mother and sister of the late Alice Litman, who took her own life in 2022 after a punishing 1,230-day wait for her first NHS appointment for gender-affirming care. The Litmans are now dedicating their lives to campaigning to better healthcare access for trans people. Caroline previously told us of winning a PEUGEOT Attitude Pride Award: “It gives me the confidence to carry on and the reassurance that what I’m doing is adding value.”

BIMINI presented to The Chase star Paul Sinha

After taking to the stage and speaking out for trans rights, Drag Race icon BIMINI presented our final award of the afternoon, to TV star Paul Sinha, who reflected on coming out as gay and on life five years since receiving a Parkinson’s diagnosis. Our other winners were Mike Parish, founder of the LGBTQ+ Dementia Advisory Group, Bisi Alimi, founder of the Bisi Alimi Foundation, Adam Imber and Ali Najjar, a married Jewish/Muslim gay male couple, Juano Diaz, an artist, and fertility equality campaigners Whitney and Megan Bacon-Evans.

The wine was wining

Partygoers got up close and personal with PEUGEOT

It’s not every day you see a PEUGEOT E-3008 parked in a hotel ballroom, but that’s exactly what happened yesterday. In fact, there were TWO of them. PEUGEOT UK Managing Director Adam Wood previously said of supporting out awards: “PEUGEOT is all about pride. Not only pride in the vehicles we produce but pride in our ethics and actions too. Working with Attitude to shine a light on the tireless work of so many LGBTQ+ people allows us to support a fantastic community, show our pride, and celebrate our shared passions for creativity, innovation and self-expression.”

Rylan let his hair down
