Become a sponsor of the GLOBE Community Awards

We’re committed to celebrating achievements of the Victorian LGBTI Community

Beginning in 2014, the GLOBE Community Awards continues a proud tradition of celebrating the achievement in the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex communities, highlighting the work of a diverse range of organisations that benefit or unite the community and highlight the outstanding work and contribution of individuals.

Through the Awards program, we have:

  • Recognised the achievements of 54 Victorian individuals and organisations
  • Hosted over 1,900 LGBTI people and allies at our Award ceremonies
  • Generated over $100,000 that has been reinvested into the community through the GLOBE Community Grants program

In 2018, we witnessed record breaking nominations and award attendance, enabling GLOBE to secure profit of $33,000 – which in 2019 is earmarked to be reinvested into the LGBTI community throughout the GLOBE Grants program.

The GLOBE Community Awards program has grown to be the foremost program recognising those contributing positively to the lived experiences of the Victorian LGBTI community.


Become a sponsor of the GLOBE Community Awards

The GLOBE Community Awards program has significant opportunity to grow and further support the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex communities. This has become evident through recent research conducted by GLOBE, as well as the observation of increased participation of the awards program, its attendance and received nominations over the past 5 years.

Now more than ever, we see a greater need to celebrate all that is great about the LGBTI community and to recognise those individuals and organisations that contribute positively to the community at large.

Becoming a sponsor of the GLOBE Community Awards provides a unique opportunity for your organisation to formally display their commitment to the growth and recognition of the Victorian LGBTI Community.
