Embrace has already made history. In Nov 2020, Embrace became the first LGBTQ member of the Associated Church Press, being an LGBTQ magazine with proactive faith-based content. The ACP was established in 1916. That same month, the Florida Press Club awarded Embrace with 15 awards, nine were first place and six were second place; the first startup magazine to win that many in its inaugural year and all either first or second place. In April 2021, Embrace became the first LGBTQ magazine to win national awards in the Associated Church Press Best in Church Press Awards. In Jan 2021, Embrace became the first LGBTQ magazine member of the Florida Magazine Association, established in 1953.
