Wolgang Huschert, president of Golden City Gate said: “Especially in today’s world, we put a big emphasis on this award to be included in travel and tourism to promote the subject of tolerance and diversity, regardless of race, religion and sexual orientation. ”

This award has been given since 2014.  In 2014 DSDS Superstar Prince Damien was the recipient for his music video “Easy Breezy.”
