Morris Price, Jr.The Paul Hunter Award was conceived in 1993, named for LGBT activist and attorney Paul Hunter. Through two decades of community work, Hunter was instrumental in advancing progressive social and political change in Colorado. He is noted for his work in the 1970’s with Denver zoning laws. He passed away from AIDS-related complications in October 1991. This award is given every year by HRC Colorado to a single member of our community who exemplifies the spirit of Paul Hunter by working tirelessly for social justice, equality and visibility of the LGBT community. The recipient of the Paul Hunter Award is selected each year by the HRC Colorado Steering Committee. Check back often to find out who this year's recipient will be!
