The nominees for the 2018 British LGBT Awards have been announced, with Demi Lovato, Laverne Cox and Cara Delevingne leading the pack in the LGBT + Celebrity category. The annual awards aim to reward LGBT celebrities and activists, along with straight allies, for excellence in their fields.   

Ten recording artists were nominated in the music artist of the year category. Some of the nominees identify as LGBT, such as Frank Ocean, Kehlani and Hayley Kiyoko. Other artists received recognition for being allies, with the likes of P!nk, Harry Styles and Dua Lipa being nominated for ally of the year.   

The awards also aim to recognize the best LGBT media moments of the year. This year, Moonlight winning best picture, the return of Will & Grace and Australia legalizing same-sex marriage have all been nominated.

Meanwhile, among the straight allies nominated are late-night host James Corden, singer Harry Styles and soccer player David Beckham.

The awards will take place May 11 at London’s Marriott Grosvenor Square. You can check out the full list of nominees and vote for your favorites here.
