Established in 1992, the Gay & Lesbian Organisation of Business & Enterprise (GLOBE ) Inc. has grown from a small social group to a focused and respected organisation for GLBTI business and social networking.
As part of the 1992 Midsumma Festival, 16 people attended a meeting at the Angel Cafe in Brunswick Street and decided that a business group should be set up. At this point Tony Dodd and Kerry James undertook to develop the idea.
Late in February 1992 the business group was officially formed and the acronym GLOBE was selected.
By August 1992, GLOBE had 92 members and had formed connections with other gay and lesbian community groups.
GLOBE's membership base is diverse, and has steadily increased over the last few years. Members include both women and men who are business owners, career professionals, private consultants, students and retirees - everyone with an interest in the business community is welcome.
