In her remarks, Laird acknowledged publisher and owner Michael Yamashita, the paper's staff, and contributors. "It is great to be recognized by our peers, and this award is a testament to the many years the B.A.R. has been sharing news of importance and significance to the LGBTQ community," she said. The B.A.R. is the oldest continuously published LGBTQ newspaper in the country and celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2021.
