2016 Ally Awards

Ally Award Winners 2016

How many outstanding allies do you work with every day?

The LGBT Ally award is presented to individuals that demonstrate long-standing support for inclusion and equality for all.

Out and Equal was honored to recognize Judy and Dennis Shepard of The Matthew Shepard Foundation at the 2016 Momentum Gala for their commitment to diversity through outreach, advocacy and resource programs.

Judy and Dennis Shepard, founders of the Matthew Shepard Foundation, have committed their lives to combatting LGBT bullying and violence following the murder of their son in 1998. The Foundation has been pivotal for bringing families together and has inspired life-saving federal hate crime legislation that has shaped our nation’s dialogue on LGBT violence and acceptance.
