The prestigious golden awards are coveted by the local LGBT community.
San Diego is at the forefront of change in the LGBT community not only locally, but worldwide, and every year the people who are directly involved with those changes are recognized with Nicky nominations.
The Nicky Awards have been called "The gay Academy Awards of San Diego," and are handed out to people and establishments in San Diego's LGBT community for their part in making positive changes, safe places, working toward acceptance and embracing equality throughout the county.
The Nicky is celebrating 44 years this year which also means they are the oldest LGBT awards on the west coast.
City Commissioner Nicole Murray-Ramirez announced to San Diego Gay and Lesbian News that this year's ceremony will be held on Sunday, December 8, 2019, at the Marriot Courtyard at Liberty Station.
The red carpet affair will be attended by government officials, celebrities, business owners and esteemed local personalities who will enjoy a formal night of great entertainment celebrating award winners.
Details and nomination windows of this year's event are upcoming so check back to SDGLN for more information in the near future.
