Independent journalist wins Stonewall award
Saturday 07 November 2009
The Independent's Johann Hari has been named Journalist of the Year at the Stonewall awards.
The judges said Hari is "a force to be reckoned with. He's quickly established himself as a leading commentator." Receiving the award, Hari said: "The only gay award I've ever been nominated for before was 'Worst Dressed Gay Man In Britain', and I was beaten by David Furnish, so I am really chuffed by this."
It is the fifth major award Hari has won in the past two years. Hari shared his award with Dame Joan Bakewell.
