Elaine was presented with the Honorary Gay Award at the 2021 Attitude Awards on 6th October at the Roundhouse in London.
Elaine said as she accepted the award:
“I am thrilled and proud to have been given this award. It means so much to me.
The LGBTQ+ community has been a huge part of my entire life, in all aspects of my work & in my private life. And without that support I wouldn’t be the person I am today. So thank you for always being there for me and I hope you know I’ll always been there for you.
I’ve won many awards in my life but this one means a lot and I’d like to thank Attitude and you all from the bottom of my heart for this. I will treasure it forever! Thank you.”
