The next and fourth Chevrolet Feather Awards Dialogue takes place in Barberton in Mpumalanga on Saturday 25 June.
This year, the annual awards ceremony is marking its eighth anniversary by travelling to eight provinces to engage with communities about LGBTI issues and challenges.
The dialogues are hosted in partnership with long standing sponsors Chevrolet and Films and Publications Board, joined by the Thami Dish Foundation, an education foundation founded by Thami Kotlolo, who is also the co-founder of the Awards.
“This year’s theme is ‘it took a community to get here’ and this is true to the journey of the Feathers’. We have enjoyed support from various sectors and societies and now the time has come to pay it forward,” said Kotlolo.
“These dialogues are only one facet of the broader vision and the growth path we are following. As the Chevy Feather Awards team we believe there is a need to share our platform with communities. It is also important to have conversations that many are afraid to have and to play a role in changing ideologies.”
The next Dialogue will be held in Barberton and will address the subject of “breaking down LGBTI and HIV stigma.”
The event will be facilitated by Lumko Johnson and is scheduled to include speakers from Health4Men, Anova, Mjindi Municipality, Amsher and OUT LGBT Well-being. All from the LGBTI community are welcome to attend and participate.
The Saturday 25 June event starts at 10am and runs till 12pm. The venue is the Mjindi Community Hall in Barberton.
