The Virgin Atlantic Attitude Awards, powered by Jaguar saw some of the world's biggest names pack out London's iconic Camden Roundhouse on Wednesday night (9 October) to celebrate the great and good of the LGBT+ community and its allies.
Supporting the Attitude Magazine Foundation, the annual awards are dedicated to honouring those who inspire and make change, make LGBT+ lives easier, influence and entertain, or quite simply give us life.
