About the Trinity Awards
Nominations for the awards are open to the entire Transgender Community. A body of respected and experienced members and friends of the community who have agreed to serve on the Selections Academy make the final award selections. The members of the Selections Academy are not necessarily members of IFGE, and must not be a current Director of IFGE. Since the Transgender Community makes the nominations at large, and the final selections are made by the Academy, these awards are truly the Transgender Community's awards.
