Nominees for the 15th annual Feather Awards were announced on Friday at The Firs in Rosebank, Johannesburg. The Modiselles – Bontle, Candice, and Refilwe will be hosting the awards for the third time in a row.

The award ceremony will be held at the Market Theatre in Johannesburg on November 9. The Feather Awards recognize individuals who have made significant contributions to the LGBTQIA+ community in entertainment and advocacy.

“This year we are here to celebrate the diversity, creativity, and resilience of all communities, during these challenging times,” Thami Kotlolo, co-founder of the Feather Awards said.

“Finding support for our initiatives continues to be a struggle, but we are forever inspired by the boldness and braveness of the queer community in continuing to push boundaries, claim spaces, and create greater freedom for all.

“Thanks to them, we can continue our work in the community at large to educate and sensitize, culminating in this fabulous annual gathering of all things queer and beyond. Congratulations to all our wonderful nominees for the Feather Awards XV! We celebrate you.”
