WATCH | How the Feather Awards' blood, sweat and diamonds came alive

The Feather Awards took place on November 15 at the Johannesburg City Hall.

The annual award ceremony is held by the Thami Dish Foundation to celebrate the LGBTI+ community and South African pop culture.

To commemorate the 10th Feather Awards, we looked at the work that goes into creating the biggest celebration yet.

We spoke to content director, public relations and event manager Sinenhlanhla Mdiya and social media intern Lucas Tsele, who gave us the lowdown on what it takes to handle their stressful jobs.

From writing the script, organising logistics and the venue, and dealing with a social media backlash, the Feather Awards team showed us what it takes to excel in creating a night of glamour.
