The 2024 Pride in Sport Awards will be our biggest yet and held at the world-class CENTREPIECE at Melbourne Park in Australia’s iconic epicentre of sports.

Experience an unforgettable night hosted by the hilarious and charismatic Adam Hills, enjoy networking on a stunning terrace with spectacular views of the Melbourne skyline, three-course dinner, drinks, world-class entertainment with Emily Williams performing and the highly anticipated Awards Ceremony as we take this event to the next level!

The Australian Pride in Sport Awards acknowledges achievements around the inclusion of people with diverse genders and sexualities in Australian sport. Recognising smaller clubs, LGBTQ+ community sport initiatives, coaches, role models, media outlets, and allies for their contributions to this space.

This event includes a 3 course dinner, drinks, networking, as well as the much anticipated award ceremony. It is also a fundraising opportunity for Pride in Sport, enabling the program to continue our work supporting Australian sport to be inclusive of LGBTQ+ people.

Our MC, Adam Hills is five-time Gold Logie nominee  and one of Australia’s best-known comedians. He is adored across Australia for his iconic role as host of ABC TV’s music-orientated quiz show Spicks and Specks and for his talk show, ‘Adam Hills Tonight’. Across the pond Adam has likewise become a household name with his talk show on Channel Four, ‘The Last Leg’. Comedy is such a massive part of Adam’s life that he wrote a whole book about it, his memoir ‘Best Foot Forward’ went on to become a Times best seller.

This year will feature entertainment by the sensational Emily Williams. New Zealand born and raised, multi-platinum selling artist Emily Williams has done it all. From ‘Australian Idol’ to the mega smash group ‘Young Divas’ to being the first Australian to even nab the leading role in ‘The Bodyguard’ musical UK!


Award recognition on the night includes:

• Results from the current year’s Pride in Sport Index (PSI)
• Results from the current year’s Community Sports Club – PSI
• Recognition of several community based nomination awards

The night is considered a must-attend on the LGBTQ+ sporting calendar and is celebrated by leading advocates, sports administrators, athletes and corporate supporters, including Pride in Sport Co Patrons; former Australian Cricket Captain Alex Blackwell, and former Australian Rugby League player Ian Roberts.
