Watch LGBT campaigner DeRay Mckesson accept the Attitude Activism Award
"The world doesn't become equal just because people want it to, but it becomes equal because people work towards it."
DeRay Mckesson has been honoured with the Activism Award at The Virgin Holidays Attitude Awards, powered by Jaguar.
One of the voices behind the global #BlackLivesMatter movement was presented with the award by LGBT+ activist Peter Tatchell at the star-studded event at London’s Roundhouse on Thursday night (October 12).
Alongside a host of other activists, DeRay launched Campaign Zero, a policy platform to end police violence, and he’s been active in landmark protests in Ferguson, Missouri and Baltimore, Maryland.
