Nomination Details

A portion of the announcement email sent December 10, 2004:
"Dear Ms. Warren,
It is with great pride and pleasure that I am able to announce that Patricia Nell Warren has been elected to Standing Inductee in the initial induction to the GLBT / Queer Hall Of Fame at Enshrinement will take place on December 22, 2004. The induction program will be carried live on Rainbow World Radio at 7:00pm central time.
Patricia Nell Warren
has been elected to membership in the GLBT / Queer Hall Of Fame based on Art Excellence, Activism, and Community Awareness.
For now the GLBT / Queer Hall Of Fame website will be the permanent home for the hall. Our hope is that in the future we will be able to establish a traveling exhibit which may be sent out to physical locations to educate and inform.
In this time of GLBT / Queer community depression over recent national elections, and world situations,  it is our hope the GLBT / Queer Hall Of Fame will provide a source of pride, education, and motivation. Not just to the GLBT / Queer community to but to the overall community of humankind.
All my best,
Len Rogers"

Quotes from nominations received for Patricia Nell Warren

"The mid seventies were not particularly open for gays, at least not in Ohio. Through her book, "Front Runner", Patricia Nell Warren helped me see a more positive world as a young gay man. For the first time I understood more about who I was and what I wanted in life. I knew the characters in "Front Runner" were fictional, but the concepts were not. That has made all the difference."

"Patricia Nell Warren's activism in; free speech rights, GLBT equality issues, sports excellence, youth programs, and writer's programs alone qualify her membership. Ms. Warren's books, notably "Front Runner" have influenced more than a generation of world citizens. Her public presence and activities have provided a positive role model and positive view of our community and increased overall awareness."

"Since the publication of "Front Runner" in 1974, Patricia Nell Warren has been a literal front runner for and in the GLBT community. Her contributions in art  and society are a portion of the fabric which is the GLBT community. Thirty years of personal leadership and community dedication certainly gets my vote for Patricia Nell Warren's membership in the Hall Of Fame."
