The History of Models of Hope: This intimate ceremony has been happening since 2006 with the LGBTQ community giving their feedback on who they feel deserves this award. The decision of who is picked is a thought-out process, allowing DIFFERENT individuals, businesses, and organizations to be honored every year, which has developed a fine list of honorees. The award is named after Albuquerque businessman and entrepreneur, Vincent R. Johnson, who made an impact in this community bringing nightlife and events to a whole new level, while providing outreach to organizations like Youth Development Inc. and Big Brothers, Big Sisters.
