About

The GLOBE Community Awards celebrate achievement in Victoria’s gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and intersex community.

They highlight the work of all types of organisations that benefit or unite the LGBTI community, and highlight the outstanding work and contribution of individuals in our community.

The awards began in 2014 and have become a strong part of the Victorian community to recognise the inspiring people and organisations that work to benefit LGBTI people.
