Focus Awards 2022

The Focus Awards are the Mid-South’s premier awards for recognizing LGBT+ persons and allies who are making a significant impact on the LGBT community through their leadership, career achievements, and personal qualities and inspire others to excel. The Focus Awards will be held on August 26, 2022, at the Brooks Museum from 6:30 pm to 9 pm CST

The People's Choice is back! Who is your favorite? Voting Open through Aug. 25 at midnight.

Each year, the Focus Awards donates funds raised during voting and a full-year Focus LGBT Magazine advertising package to award one winner.

As the People’s Choice voting kicks off, we pair each person or group with a nonprofit to serve as the beneficiary. As we collect votes ($1 per vote and you can vote as many times as you want and for multiple people/nonprofits), we tally the top fundraiser and who the community chooses for this year’s People Choice winner. The winner is awarded a fabulous trophy, and the nonprofit receives the gift in their honor. Win! Win!

That winner will be announced this year at the Focus Awards 2022 live and in person at the Memphis Brooks Museum on August 26 from 6:30-9 pm.

Who is your favorite? Vote now through August 25 at midnight.
