What is pride foundation Australia?
Pride Foundation Australia provides funding for projects that address the systemic disadvantage of LGBTQIA+ communities and individuals in Australia.
This funding is possible though year-round fundraising, sponsorship and philanthropic partnerships.
Pride Foundation Australia Exists Because...
What do we do?
Despite achieving marriage equality in 2017, many Australian LGBTQIA+ communities still face significant disadvantages and discrimination.
Pride Foundation Australia is a national philanthropic foundation run by volunteers, specifically focused on addressing lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, gender diverse, queer, intersex, asexual and other LGBTQIA+ community issues in Australia through targeted funding around dedicated research, training development and community support.
Pride Foundation Australia supports the Uluru Statement from the Heart and commits through the resources it has available to them, to work with, for, and alongside Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander LGBTIQ+ Sistergirl and Brotherboy peoples and communities to embed a self-determined future.
We affirm that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people must have a Voice in laws, programs, services and policies that affect them. While we understand the impacts that such a referendum can have on an individual’s social and emotional wellbeing and mental health, we know a ‘Yes’ vote will begin a process of truth telling and healing that is essential for structural reform and a meaningful shared future.
We support the ‘yes’ position in the forthcoming referendum on the Voice to Parliament.
We further commit the contribution of a significant proportion of grant funding received, to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander LGBTIQ+ Sistergirl and Brotherboy led initiatives to improve social outcomes.
It is time to recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the constitution; and it’s time to raise our efforts, it’s time to engage effective ways to support their continued presence, leadership and governance at all levels.
