Tony Lima, executive director of SAVE, will be honored by the upcoming Diversity Honors taking place 7 p.m. Saturday, March 30 at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood.
Diversity Honors is an annual collaboration between the Pride Center in Wilton Manors and the Harvey Milk Foundation.
“I’m very humbled and honored by the Pride Center and Harvey Milk Foundation for celebrating my leadership and work in the community,” Lima said. “These are two organizations I respect very much. I think it’s important to recognize those of us who are working on behalf of equality and those of us making sure we all can all live prosperous and full lives as LGBTQ people.”
No other honorees have been announced yet via Diversity Honors’ website.
This year’s emcee will be Jamie Guirola, a general assignment reporter for NBC 6.
Some of last year’s honorees included Dolores Huerta, a leader of the Latino, Labor and Women’s Civil Rights Movement; Dean Trantalis, Fort Lauderdale Mayor and LGBTQ Advocate; the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Gay-Straight Alliance; and David Richardson, a former Florida State Representative.
