Australian Pride in Sport Awards


 2019 Australian Pride in Sport Awards

The 2019 Australian Pride in Sport Awards evening will be held in style in Melbourne along the South Wharf Promenade. This signature event for Pride in Sport will celebrate LGBTI inclusion achievements within Australian sports for all National and State level, sporting
codes including grassroots clubs.

The cocktail evening will feature drinks and canapes, hosted by SBS NITV’s Matty Webb, keynote speaker Matt Cecchin, Australian Rugby League Referee, a panel discussion featuring Pride in Sport Patrons Daniel Kowalski and Alex Blackwell joined by Kate Palmer, CEO of  Sport Australia followed by the much anticipated award ceremony. It’s tipped to be the ‘must-attend’ event on the LGBTI sporting calendar and will be attended by leading advocates, sports administrators, athletes and corporate supporters.

Several of the awards acknowledge achievement within the Pride in Sport Index (PSI), Australia’s national benchmarking instrument for LGBTIQ inclusion within Australian Sport endorsed by Sport Australia (formally Australian Sport Commission) and the Australian Human Rights Commission. In addition, coaches, role models and allies will be recognised for their contribution to LGBTI inclusion in Sport based on nominations submitted by the wider community.

Join us in celebrating the achievements in LGBTI inclusion across Australian Sport.

Date: Wednesday 12 June 2019
Location: Cargo Hall, 39 S Wharf Promenade South Wharf, Victoria 3006
Time: 6:00pm – 8:30pm
