OUTstanding GT Honours

We are delighted to announce that Suki Sandhu, Founder and CEO, has been nominated for the Gary Frisch Success in Entrepreneurship Honour, with Gay Times.

This honour focuses on the importance of entrepreneurs and how their work helps us build a better society – just as the late Gary Frisch did. He is known for setting up the website Gaydar, a project he began to help his friend who was not able to find a partner. The site is now used by many, connecting 3.5 million users in 23 countries.

Unfortunately, Gary is no longer with us but his memory lives on through these honours, in collaboration with the Gay Times. The Honours recognise organisations and individuals who have had a tremendous impact over the past 50 years on what it means to live freely as LGBT+ people in Britain today.

This year, Suki has been nominated for the Gary Frisch Success in Entrepreneurship Honour. He has been recognised for founding OUTstanding, a membership organisation for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT+) leaders and future leaders to create a more inclusive environment and for them to succeed.

In light of recent events, the need to stand up and be unafraid is greater than ever. OUTstanding was founded to prove that LGBT+ executives could be visible, safe and successful in business. It drives cultural change within its member firms, increasing visibility, inspiring, informing and connecting LGBT+ colleagues.

Other nominees for this category include:

  • Waheed Alli (Politician and businessman)
  • Robyn Exton (Founder of HER)
  • Linda Riley (Publisher of DIVA Magazine)
  • Antonia Belcher (Founding Partner of MHBC)
  • Anthony Watson (CEO of Uphold)
  • Mary Portas (Retail consultant and broadcaster)

The Gay Times Honours will be presented in November at the National Portrait Gallery – set up to promote the appreciation of men and women who have impacted British history and culture.
