Enabling Victoria’s LGBTQI+ professionals and small business owners to thrive


GLOBE (the Gay & Lesbian Organisation of Business & Enterprise) has announced the finalists for their annual LGBTQI+ business awards, which recognise outstanding achievements in the Victorian community.


The sixth annual GLOBE Community Awards ceremony, held in Melbourne on 11 October, showcases contributions to the LGBTQI+ community from a diverse range of organisations across eleven categories. Awards include: ANZ Excellence in Small Business, A Healthy Community, Artist Of The Year, Connecting the LGBTQI+ Community, LGBTQI+ Person of the Year, Sportsperson of the Year, Artist of the Year, Media Excellence, Protecting Our Community, Straight Ally of the Year and Volunteer Of the Year. 


GLOBE President, Dan de Rochefort, said: “The LGBTQI+ community continues to grow and prosper thanks to the tireless efforts of many who sacrifice their time to provide support, care for others, challenge the status quo and foster inclusivity. GLOBE is proud to be able to celebrate all that is great about the Victorian rainbow community through the GLOBE Community Awards and we congratulate all of the nominees and thank them for all that they do.”


GLOBE is a not-for-profit community group that aims to unite Victorian and Australian LGBTQI+ groups and their supporters while encouraging diversity and inclusiveness through social, professional and community events. GLOBE endeavours to create business, professional and social environments where members of the LGBTQI+ community can thrive and realise their full potential.

The 2018 GLOBE Victorian LGBTQI+ Person of the Year was awarded to Jeremy Wiggins, co-chair of the trans masculine sexual health advocacy group, PASH.tm. He has a unique and long standing career and passionately advocates for the LGBTQI+ community. Jeremy has been announced as a judge for this year’s awards and is joined by Chyloe Kurdas, Farrah Tomazin, Leonard Vary, Matt Buck and Sally Goldner, all remarkable LGBTQI+ advocates who contribute significantly to the community within sport, media, business, health and art.


The 2019 GLOBE Community Awards will be held on 11 October 2019 in Melbourne and are presented in partnership with the Victorian State Government with support from a number of commercial sponsors. Tickets are selling fast and are available now at: https://globemelbourne.com.au/product/2019awards/
