HEROES was started to honor individuals whose work and leadership advance the rights of the LGBT community. Through the nomination process, we seek to identify youth, adults, non-profits, straight-allies & businesses who have bold ideas, act with selfless intention, are admired for their integrity, and are regarded as courageous in advancing the equality of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, & transgender community in the Delaware Valley and beyond. DVLF honors these Heroes annually in celebration of their character & their encouragement of others to act heroically.
