Victoria to become home to Australia’s first Pride Centre

The Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission welcomes the announcement of Australia’s first ever Pride Centre for Victoria’s LGBTI community.

The Pride Centre will showcase LGBTI art and history, bring together advisory, health and support services, and feature community spaces to provide a safe social environment.

The Pride Centre will serve as a hub for LGBTI groups and organisations, sharing ideas and resources to further their work in supporting equality, diversity and inclusion across the state.

The final design, location and timeframe for the establishment of the Pride Centre will be agreed in consultation with the LGBTI community.

The announcement comes ahead of the formal historic State apology to the LGBTI community in Parliament on 24 May 2016 for those convicted under unjust and prejudiced laws against homosexual acts.
