Metro Weekly and its publisher, Randy Shulman, received 18 ViceVersa Awards from the QSyndicate in 1998 which included Best News Interview or Personality Profile. In 2007, One In Ten gave an award to Metro Weekly as "the community’s event and entertainment bible, for their newspaper's consistent and enthusiastic support of lgbt arts." In 2008 the magazine was honored for empowering the Asian/Pacific Islander GLBT community by Pride and Heritage.
