According to MSN Entertainment, British LGBT Awards founder Sarah Garrett MBE said: ''The 2017 NatWest British LGBT Awards shortlist features inspirational people who have and continue to use their platform to promote and enhance LGBT rights all over the world. All nominees are absolutely deserving of their place on the shortlist but it is now down to the public to choose their winners ahead of the ceremony which is set to be the biggest yet when it takes place in London on 12 May",

The LGBT Award ceremony will also pay tribute to the late George Michael, who unfortunately passed away on Christmas Day last year.
