August 8th, 2022Money for pride events
The state government is celebrating and supporting lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and gender diverse, intersex and queer (LGBTIQ+) Victorians with funding for events throughout the state.
The government is investing $220,000 into this year’s Pride Events and Festivals Fund to help create safe, strong, and sustainable communities across Victoria.
LGBTIQ+ organisations and community groups can apply for grants of up to $10,000 for the planning and delivery of events that promote queer arts and culture, celebrate the diversity in rainbow communities and raise awareness to combat discrimination.
The Fund is underpinned by a commitment to inclusivity, ensuring all activities are welcoming and accessible to all communities, including LGBTIQ+ people with disabilities, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and those based in regional and rural areas.
The strategy aims to strengthen the LGBTIQ+ sector and create safe, strong, and sustainable communities, including through programs such as the Pride Events and Festivals Fund.
Applications are open until Wednesday 28 August 2022. For further information and to apply visit: vic.gov.au/pride-events-and-festivals-fund.
