The Gay & Lesbian Organisation for Business and Enterprise (GLOBE) today announced the launch and the opening of nominations for the inaugural GLOBE Community Awards.
The GLOBE Community Awards are the only ones of their kind in Victoria and will celebrate achievements in our State’s gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and intersex community.
GLOBE President David Micallef is thrilled with the development of the Awards, which will be presented at a gala event on 17 October 2014.
“These awards are the opportunity our community needs to celebrate our successes and to honour the exceptional work being done by individuals and groups to make Victoria an amazing place to identify as GLBTI,” Mr Micallef said.
GLOBE catches up with food connoisseur, tour operator and GLOBE member Andrew Prior of Queenie’s Food Tours to talk about food, Paris and more food.
Queenie’s Food Tours is all about helping you discover some of the best food that Melbourne has to offer. From finding the best sweets in South Yarra to the Melbourne CBD’s best breakfast, these tours will offer everyone something special.
Lucky for Melbourne, owner and operator Andrew Prior is obsessed with food and has connected with some of the city’s best food producers and purveyors. His expertise and knowledge of how to reach foodie Mecca is second to none and should be taken advantage of, now!
