Gaydio and our community panel will create a shortlist for Music Artist of the Year with a public vote taking place in January 2023. The LGBTQ+ Champion of the Year will be decided by Gaydio and our community panel.
As teased on the breakfast show this morning, the glitzy awards ceremony will be topped off with performances from an array of entertainers including a soon-to-be announced roof-raising headliner.
