The Australian LGBTI Awards are designed to showcase individuals and organisations that have demonstrated an outstanding commitment to the LGBTI community. We believe that those who go the extra mile to ensure equality, opportunity and fair treatment for all, regardless of sexuality, gender identity, or intersex experience deserve to be recognised.
WHO WE ARE
OutNews Global and Twin Media Group have joined together to bring you this exciting project. The LGBTI Awards are an incredible opportunity for members of LGBTI community to have their achievements acknowledged in a very public way. The awards celebrate both corporate and celebrity role models, showcasing the very best of the community has to offer.
OutNews Global’s editorial focus is on breaking news in national and international politics, religion, business, community, entertainment and lifestyle, which is published daily. We are dedicated to building support for equality and diversity through media representation, by promoting understanding and increasing acceptance.
We tackle tough issues, working hard to change attitudes, and to change society for the better through fair reporting practice. OutNews Global frequently acquires exclusive interviews within the LGBTI sector.

Quotes from our creators:
Linda Riley: "These Awards will help celebrate and recognise the great and inspirational work done by many to influence change in LGBTI legislation - they will recognise not only the LGBTI community but straight allies without whom’s help we could not achieve true equality - it is Australia’s time"
Silke Bader : "I am truly honoured to be partnering Global Diversity Company with this exciting and innovating project. There has never been an event like this is Australia before. Bringing together Allies and the LGBTI community to help in the fight against injustice and inequality! When I wanted to adopt my own fostered children I needed to give evidence at the parliamentary enquiry to eventually win permission - there is so much to be done and until the day I can legally marry my partner in every state and my children can be proud to say out loud that they have two mums I cannot and will not stop in my quest for true equality in Australia"
