Years & Years Win ‘Best Live Act’ at GQ Awards

Presented by Christine and The Queens, Years & Years accepted ‘Best Live Act’ at the 2018 GQ Awards.

In his acceptance speech, Olly Alexander told the audience “to make room for all many, many different ways there are to be a man”. Olly continued, going on to say “Let’s let our men be happy, be sad, be trans, be questioning, be bisexual, be non-conforming, be feminine, be masculine!”

Alongside questioning the current definition of a man, Olly also used the win to bring attention to suicide awareness, “the biggest killer of men between 20 and 50”, encouraging everyone to recognise the issue and seek the help that require.
