CHICAGO — Windy City Times newspaper is seeking to recognize 30 outstanding lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender individuals, and their allies, for its annual 30 Under 30 awards.

In 2000, Windy City Times established an award to acknowledge the young movers and shakers of the Chicago-area LGBT community: the 30 Under 30 Awards. Thirty young activists, athletes, journalists, students, HIV/AIDS volunteers, performers and others who were each under the age of 30 were honored for their achievements in moving the LGBT community forward. Each year since, another 30 have been honored.

Nominees should be under 30 years of age as of July 1, 2009 and should have made some substantial contributions to the LGBT community, whether in the fields of entertainment, politics, health and/or other areas.

The deadline to nominate individuals is Friday, April 24. The awards ceremony will be Tuesday, June 23, at the Center on Halsted, 3656 N. Halsted in Chicago.

Individuals, organizations, co-workers, friends and family can nominate a person by sending an e-mail or fax to Windy City Media Group. The nomination should be 100 words or less and should state what achievements or contributions the nominee has made. Nominators should include their own names and contact information as well as the contact information of the nominee. WCMG will except self nominations.

Nominations can be sent to Andrew@WindyCityMediaGroup.com or faxed to Andrew Davis' attention to 773-871-7609, by April 24, 2009.

The 30 under 30 Awards are sponsored by Windy City Times, with co-sponsors AIDS Foundation of Chicago, Center on Halsted, Chicago House, Howard Brown Health Center and Better Existence with HIV ( BEHIV ) .
