Melbourne Star Observer


Since 1979, the Star Observer has worked to inform and connect Australia’s LGBTIQ+ communities over the news and issues that matter to them, via a monthly magazine and online news outlet.

The publication has shared the community’s struggles and triumphs, and shone a light on many unique stories untouched by the mainstream press – from the AIDS crisis and the decriminalisation of homosexuality through to trans rights and marriage equality.

This year, the Star Observer celebrates its 42nd year as a community owned LGBTIQ+ media outlet.
