BENIDORM journalist to receive a Lifetime Achievement award.

The London-based National Secular Society is to award a Lifetime Achievement honour to Barry Duke, editor of two online magazines, The Freethinker and The Pink Humanist, as part of this year’s Secularist of the Year celebrations on March 18, 2017.

Announcing the award, Terry Sanderson, President of the National Secular Society said: “I am very pleased that the NSS is honouring Barry in this way.

“He has been a consistent voice for many years in the fight for justice and secular humanist principles. From resisting apartheid in his native South Africa to fighting for gay rights in Britain and Spain. Barry, who celebrated his 70th birthday in February, has always provided a strong rationalist voice.”
