This week, Adweek introduced its first-ever award honoring LGBTQ leaders in marketing, brands, media and culture: Adweek Pride Stars.

The 15 people chosen for the inaugural Pride Stars honors have different roles in the industry, but each has worked to push forward LGBTQ inclusion, visibility and equality both by being out in the workplace and by consistently making progress in how LGBTQ people are represented in advertising.
