Addressing homelessness

$3 million to address the higher than average rate of homelessness in Victoria’s LGBTI communities.

Celebrating Victoria's LGBTI communities

$1.2 million to celebrate Victoria’s LGBTI communities, including the expansion of the Pride Festivals and Events Fund and planning for Melbourne Pride 2021, marking 40 years since Victoria’s Parliament decriminalised homosexuality.
