About the Centre

The Victorian Pride Centre is the first purpose-built centre for Australia's LGBTIQ+ communities. It is a place to pave new directions for LGBTIQ+ communities, while honouring and celebrating their brave – and at times difficult – past. It is home to practical and supportive services and will grow into a destination for visitors from across Australia, and beyond.

The Victorian Pride Centre houses major and important LGBTIQ+ resident organisations, and provides flexible and multi-use spaces for hire, including, meeting rooms, rooftop terrace, co-working spaces, a theatrette and gallery.

The Centre serves as a hub for LGBTIQ+ groups and organisations to share ideas and resources and to further their work in supporting equality, diversity and inclusion across the state.

We have an amazing team working hard behind the scenes who have made the Victorian Pride Centre a reality – Meet our people.

The building is open for 2022!

Funding and acknowledgements

The Victorian Pride Centre was part funded by the State Government who in 2016 contributed to the construction of the facility to showcase LGBTIQ+ art and history as well as bringing together advisory, health and support services.

The Pride Centre is also fortunate and extremely thankful to have had the support of the City of Port Phillip, which has gifted the community the land for the Pride Centre.
