Erwin Olaf honored

Erwin Olaf and Vera Bergkamp, chairman COC Netherlands

Dutch photographer Erwin Olaf was awarded the Bob Angelo medal, an annual award for special contributions to LGBT emancipation. His passionate plea to put a stop to racism and homophobia on the Dutch television show ‘Zomergasten’ and organizing The Black Party, a fundraiser for Tolerance United, led the Dutch LGBT organization COC to award him the medal.

Erwin Olaf is a long time advocate for tolerance and an internationally acclaimed photographer. We congratulate him with this award and are grateful for his support of Pride Photo Award. Let’s make this world a better place.

Pride Photo Award is an annual international contest for photos about sexual and gender diversity.
