Announcing the 25th Sexual Freedom Awards!
Monday 25th November, 2019
Doors open 7pm | start – 7.30pm
The 25th year of the Sexual Freedom Awards has arrived and this year's sumptuous ceremony celebrating the right to erotic expression is at The Grand, Clapham.
The Sexual Freedom Awards celebrate those who stand up and fight for sexual rights and a sex-positive world. We aim to promote excellence in the field of sexuality by celebrating a standard of inclusivity, openness and accessibility, frequently under threat by negativity and politics.
The Awards’ night focuses on the finalists of each category. It showcases the best talent for the Performance and Striptease categories, mixed with award-giving and fabulous guest cabaret acts.
If you believe in our values of equality, inclusion, sex positivity, gender non-conformity and accessibility then come join us to see the movers and shakers get rewarded for all they do. Whether you are a member of the public, have colleagues who have been nominated or have a professional interest in the Awards, we encourage you all .... to buy a ticket! Be there to give rip-roaring applause and cheers to show your appreciation.
The compère this year is the comedian Charlie George, a tour de force and our Chair of Judges is Kim Loliya.
The award is the glorious and famous Flying Golden Penis Trophy, hand carved for the event in Bali. All nominees have shown dedication, spirit and excellence in what they have achieved but only the winners receive this trophy.
The Sexual Freedom Awards are a fund-raising event for The Outsiders Trust (charity number 283350).
The charity supports an online club of people who have disabilities so that they might find friends, relationships and explore their sexual expression. It also runs a helpline, helps professionals through a forum and is behind various websites with information from finding a sex worker to how a professional can approach someone with a disability to talk about sex.
