Bimini won the style prize, actor Chella Man won the hero award and West End star Max Harwood won the breakthrough award for his role in the musical Everybody’s Talking About Jamie.

Darren Styles, publisher of Attitude magazine, said: “A year away on account of Covid meant the world’s biggest LGBTQ media brand switched to an online offering in 2020, garnering more than two million viewers on multiple channels along the way.

“But there is nothing like 650 people in a room, dressed to the nines, celebrating the LGBTQ community to get the blood pumping.

“Especially if you headline with Steps – 2021 is the comeback year, the year to say you were there!”
