Community Awards Program

2003 International Recipients

Ulrichs, Mother Courage, and Eleanor Awards

      The goal of presenting these awards to to recognize the hard work and dedication of the recipients. In addition it would be our hope to increase awareness within and outside the GLBTI Community of the recipients and their efforts, thus increasing support.  A more steadfast, consistent, and  connected community is realized due to the efforts of our recipients.

      It is in an understanding of dedication, and a strong appreciation of efforts and actions that these awards are bestowed. With pride the StoneWall Society announces the 2003 recipients of the International level of the Community Awards Program.  ( General criteria)

The Awards and 2003 International Level Recipients

International Ulrichs Award for Exemplary Community Contribution
Named in honor of Karl Heinrich Ulrichs  August, 1825 to July, 1895. Criteria - award specific
Presented to:

Daniel Jenkins
(Founder of Outvoice)

Read Danny's acceptance statement.

Through his tireless efforts with Outvoice, Danny has raised community consciousness about GLBT music and GLBT musicians. Maintaining the only online chart tracking exclusively geared to GLBT music is a monumental task in itself. A pioneer in bringing our community musicians and their music to the forefront, Danny maintains lists and services which keep the music community in touch. Thus creating opportunities otherwise unavailable.  The total social worth of Danny's community contribution I am sure will not be fully understood for years. Let's just be glad he is and we can take this time to say Thank you and send our community appreciation. 

International Eleanor Award for Community Leadership
Named in honor of former United States First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt. 
A prominent activist for human equal rights.  Criteria - award specific
Presented to:

Peter Tatchell 
Gay & Human Rights Activist

Read Peter's acceptance thanks, as he responds while on the road.

In his unyielding crusade for human rights, Peter Tatchell has brought GLBT equality to the forefront on many occasions. Creating the opportunity for communication, positive change, education, and increased public support. His personal costs and pains through his unending battles are testament to his stamina. By forging these roads, opening this communication, Peter is leading not just the GLBT community to a better world, but establishing a precedent for social conviction and change. Controversy is a product and effect of change, one from which Peter does not shy. It takes true courage and conviction to be a lone voice in the wind. The time has come for more to hear the message. Thank you Peter for your fortitude and determination.

International Mother Courage Award for Community Support
Named in honor of Bella Abzug who introduced the first lesbian-gay civil rights bill in congress in 1975. 
Strong human rights activist. Criteria - award specific 
Presented to:

R. Rip Naquin-Delain & M. Marsha Naquin-Delain
Rip and Marsha  
(Founders of Ambush magazine)

Community support comes in many ways. Rip & Marsha Naquin-Delain have shown the gulf-south community many of those. In their own right and via their publication/website "Ambush Magazine", Rip & Marsha personify "out" and "community". Very much so both in their native New Orleans, and as well from Texas to Florida. Always broadening the breadth of their community by introduction. Both bring the world-wide neighborhood of the GLBT community to a more personal prospective. Supporting community through information, activity, and personal involvement. Approachable and available, Rip & Marsha strengthen community and create ambiance and social cohesion. Thank you both for sharing your excitement and grace making a fragmented world more pleasant.
