CD: I’m not going to let you ruin a beautiful moment Poppy. But now that you mention it….

CD: Congratulations Rhea on a wonderful song! But now we need to get serious for a moment. Please welcome back to the stage, my sister Poppy Fields.
PF: Last year our LGBT Moment of the Year was an undeniable moment of triumph as marriage equality became the law of the land. This year’s moment was one of unspeakable tragedy as a madman with a gun invaded one of our sanctuaries, Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, Florida and brutally murdered forty nine innocent people, while injuring many more. Right we ask that you all join us in a moment of silence, to remember those we have lost.
PF: Thank you all for that moment of silence.
CD: That moment of silence is the perfect segue for our final new award this year. Please welcome the narrator for this award, my friend Beverly Leslie Sills.
RECIPIENT: GYPSY GEMINI
CD: Thank you Gypsy for the inspiration you have provided us all. This award will be given out in your name each year to someone who exhibits your courage and inspiration in the face of adversity.
PF: So as we reflect back on the recent past with sadness, we still need to move forward and look towards the future with hope. In that vein, its time to recognize this year’s Drag Horizon Award winner. Please welcome to the stage, the 2015 Drag Horizon Award winner, Phaedra Phaded!
