About The Lobby

 

The Victorian Pride Lobby works toward equality and social justice for the Victorian LGBTIQA+ community. To do this, we will work constructively, cooperatively, and respectfully with trans and gender diverse, intersex, asexual, and other organisations that support our mission and vision.
 

The vision of the Lobby is that LGBTIQA+ people no longer face discrimination in law or practice in Victoria, and that the diversity of Victoria’s LGBTIQA+ communities is valued and celebrated.

 
We are a non-partisan organisation that is not affiliated with any political party. We are a non-profit, mission-driven community-based lobbying organisation that collaborates with community organisations, advocates, and representatives to effect positive change in the areas of human rights, equality, and policy development.

We acknowledge the unique rights and status of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples as the traditional and ongoing custodians of this land.

We support cultural diversity and difference and recognise that respecting these differences makes our community stronger.

The Victorian Pride Lobby happily provides comments to the media regarding current LGBTIQA+ affairs and topical issues. Please call us on 0417 484 438 to connect with our spokesperson. As a volunteer organisation, we will endeavour to answer your query but please contact info@vicpridelobby.org if you don’t receive a response.

Why Pride?

 

Pride is the promotion of self-affirmation, dignity, equality and increased visibility of lesbian, gay, bisexual, queer and same-sex attracted people. Pride is the outlook that bolsters our movement for equality, human rights and social justice. Pride is the name of our march, our centre and the name of our Lobby. Together, we can feel pride in all that we have achieved over the past 20 years, and build an inclusive movement for change.
