About the Organisation
The Victorian Pride Centre aims to be the most loved, well known and visited home for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) community in Australia.
The Victorian Pride Centre has four strategic goals: building a Pride Centre that is sustainable; building a home for major LGBTI organisations that is also accessible to other LGBTI community groups; building a hub that is a catalyst to promote cultural activities and LGBTI organisations; and, connecting individuals across Victoria and beyond through the proposed Victorian Virtual Pride Centre.
Planning for the centre, which will be located in Fitzroy Street, St. Kilda, is progressing well. Alongside the planning for and building of the Centre, community engagement, marketing and social media needs are growing significantly.
