Rooftop Terrace Pavilion


The Pride Centre Rooftop is THE events place for Victoria’s LGBTIQ+ communities, a perfect platform for parties, events, happenings, chilling and potentially community gardening. It’s a space of 1093m2 with spectacular views of Port Phillip Bay and the CBD.

To protect people from the elements an approximately 50m2 pavilion is proposed. This elegant pavilion, constructed of steel and polycarbonate sheeting, will be a stylish addition to the Pride Centre and will optimise the success of the Rooftop Terrace as an events space.

It’s a great opportunity for naming rights if you and your friends and/or associates would like to support the funding of the whole structure.

Support the campaign to install a Pavilion in honour of Ayman Barbaresco and Yvonne Gardner.

Why this item is important to The Yvonne & Ayman Giving Circle - Fundraising for the Barbaresco Gardner Pavilion

Ayman Barbaresco (who passed away in 2020) and Yvonne Gardner (who passed away in 2018) were brilliant and beloved members of our communities. They both gave so much to so many through their seemingly endless volunteer work with many LGBTIQ+ organisations - including many who call the Victorian Pride Centre home - and they were friends to so many of us. They were at the heart of many of our communities, and so it is a beautiful and fitting tribute that the new rooftop pavilion at the heart of the Victorian Pride Centre be named in their honour - a lasting and enduring memorial to these two magnificent people. As a place for our communities to gather, celebrate, and come together, we ask you to join with us and the Yvonne & Ayman Giving Circle to raise funds for the Barbaresco Gardner Pavilion. Mama Alto, one of the community members leading the Giving Circle, says: "Yvonne loved to host gatherings bringing people together - for community, for commiseration, for celebration. At community events, Ayman was always the first to arrive and the last to leave - helping with set up and pack up. They both did so much for our communities - and the beautiful Barbaresco Gardner Pavilion will continue their stunning legacies." The Pride Fund, a LGBTIQ+ charitable organisation, is joining forces with the VPC and Mama Alto to fundraise for this important infrastructure.
