The Gay Men’s Chorus of Washington announced that the Washington Blade has been named recipient of its 2012 Harmony Award.
The Harmony Award was established in 2004 and is presented each year to individuals and organizations that exemplify GMCW’s mission to “champion gay equality.” Previous recipients include Frank Kameny (2006), Immigration Equality (2010) and the Mautner Project (2004).
“Our selection committee voted unanimously that your purpose and accomplishments as America’s gay newspaper of record embody the spirit of this award,” said Tom Mounteer, GMCW’s board chair, in a statement.
The award will be given to the Blade on April 21 at New York Avenue Presbyterian Church during a Chorus performance.
“We’re very proud to receive this honor from one of D.C.’s premier community institutions,” said Blade publisher Lynne Brown. “The entire staff of the Blade works hard for the community and we are deeply grateful for this recognition.”
