Light Up the Night Gala - LGBTIQ+ Health Australia

Light Up the Night Gala

The Light Up the Night Gala is Australia’s premier and purposeful LGBTQ+ fundraising event, hosted by the LGBTQ Domestic Violence Awareness Foundation. 

The elegant evening is a chance for hundreds of allies, business leaders, political representatives, community groups and philanthropists to take a visible stand and support an important cause.

Celebrating its third year in 2024, the Light Up the Night Gala is equal parts style and substance – an eagerly anticipated and well-attended black-tie event that unites people in a shared cause.

The spectacular event is hosted in the architecturally stunning Brisbane City Hall under the rainbow dome of its beautifully preserved Main Auditorium.

Guests enjoy networking opportunities, a sumptuous three-course dinner with premium beverages, guest speakers, powerful stories, special headline entertainers, live music, live auction and raffles.

We are a strong voice for LGBTQ+ domestic violence victims and survivors, working to end domestic, family and intimate partner violence and abuse within LGBTQ+ communities.

We are a registered charity, founded in 2020, and are committed to shining a light on an epidemic that’s plagued LGBTQ+ communities for far too long.

Propelled by passionate volunteers and governed by a Board of Directors, we strive to overcome a fundamental lack of awareness, representation and understanding about the prevalence of this abuse.

We work tirelessly to provide education, information and resources to support services, workplaces, bystanders and survivors.

We know that visibility is the key.

By cultivating a culture of awareness, we can create real and meaningful change. 

Our mission is to ensure everyone – no matter their sexuality or gender identity – feels seen and believed and receives safe and inclusive support.
