Long-term Achievement Award

To recognise the work and contribution of an exceptional individual who has campaigned over a long period of time.

Peter Tatchell

‘Peter is the original thorn the side of the establishment. He does not campaign politely, he campaigns passionately. He has created space for others to live openly and proudly, and has made the previously unthinkable possible. Successful campaigning needs a whole host of ingredients – but Peter always brings the rocket fuel.’

Sue Tibballs, SMK Chief Executive
