The Chuck Charleston Award is presented to a former member of Pride St. Louis who has dedicated of themselves and extraordinary amount of energy to ensuring that the Pride movement is further strengthened through their work both in the community and certainly on behalf of Pride St. Louis.

Chuck Charleston was known for many years with...in the St. Louis LGBT community. He was always supportive of local organizations through energy, talents, and dedication. Chuck was also an early supporter of local Pride Celebration efforts and was always there ready to pitch in and work wherever needed.

Many people remember Chuck as the manager of Faces, and a long time employee of its predecessor, The Red Bull in East St. Louis.

Chuck Charleston died on April 21, 1988 and will be remembered for his involvement—public and private—in many causes and charities. He worked with many among us, lending his support and resources to numerous local events, and often doing so quietly behind the scenes, receiving little credit.

In June 1988, Pride St. Louis created the Chuck Charleston Award to acknowledge individuals who, in the example of its namesake, demonstrate significant involvement and service promoting LGBT Pride in our community.
