2020 GLOBE Community Awards
Now in it’s 7th year the GLOBE Community Awards celebrate achievement in Victoria’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex and Queer communities, highlighting the work of a diverse range of organisations and individuals that benefit and unite our community.
In the last six years we’ve:
- Awarded more than 65 Victorian individuals and organisations
- Hosted more than 2,500 LGBTIW people and allies at our awards ceremonies
- Reinvested over $110,000 into the Vitorian LGBTIQ community.
- We’re not sure what shape the GLOBE Community Awards will take in 2020, but come rain, hail, shine, natural disaster or global pandemic we will continue to celebrate the wonderful work of our community.
