Our annual celebration of the gay and lesbian community is back and it's better than ever because, this time, we've had your help
We asked Independent on Sunday readers to nominate the unsung heroes and heroines who make life as a lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender person better – as well as the celebrities who make the world a more entertaining place. You responded by sending in more than 1,500 nominations, which boiled down to about 300 separate names.
These have been pored over by our panel of expert judges, including two who represented their parties in parliament, two who have represented their countries at sports, a magazine editor, a comedian, four tireless campaigners and a HM Procurator-General, no less.
#49 (last year 87) Russell Tovey
The former History Boy has become the veritable face of BBC 3 recently, thanks to the successes of supernatural series Being Human and relationship comedy-drama Him & Her. In his own words, his blokey Essex boy demeanour continues to "sort of challenge people's perceptions of what a gay man is".
I know it’s not the best award card in the world but my class insisted we give Mark a merit card...A Merrett merit card!!! They saw some of the werewolf pictures that Mark has been drawing…and they also think the “werehamster” is such a cute concept! Mark’s pictures will be exhibited on the blog over the coming weeks. Not bad for a bloke who suffers from severe dyslexia and crippling agoraphobia.

Below is a colouring page you can use for children. It is Russell Tovey's character Squirt as featured in the upcoming BBC “Mike The Knight” TV series for small children. Click to enlarge and print.
For those who have followed the Tovey blog it will come as no surprise that Russell Tovey will be a part of the big Aardman release for 2012 called "Pirates." Today I asked director Peter Lord of Aardman Studios if he could send me some covert pictures or drawings for the blog! Pete has been a long-time supporter of the Tovey blog and has drawn me a "Pirate" picture for using on my posts, as shown directly below.
An unlikely coincidence occurred today, I had correspondence from a doctor re the condition of albinism which is what Russell’s character has in the movie....the correspondence is also below...
PeteLordAardman: Curses. Working Saturdays never entirely welcome, but today is lovely and sunshiney and - - - - off to the dark I go.
Tom_In_Oz_: @PeteLordAardman Hi Pete, anything new I can blog yet? Are we nearly there yet? Can you send me some covert or secret snaps or drawings plz?
PeteLordAardman: weary and sun-starved crew members in bizarre lunchtime ritual
PeteLordAardman:... spare heads...
PeteLordAardman: A glimpse in the puppet store. These are extras, hanging around, waiting.
PeteLordAardman: I realise I rather like these working Saturdays - they're noticeably less barmy than the rest of the week.
PeteLordAardman: Just a few spare hands. This is the tip of the iceberg, hand-wise.
PeteLordAardman: On the set (yesterday, I'm not working on a Sunday. No sir.)
