The GLOBE Community Awards celebrate achievement in Victoria’s gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and intersex community, and highlight the work of all types of organisations that benefit or unite the GLBTI community, and recognise the outstanding work and contribution of individuals in our community.

Hosted by Australian Comedienne Hannah Gadsby, the Winners of the GLOBE Community Awards will be announced at the Myer Mural Hall on Friday 16 October 2015.
Hannah Gadsby is an award-winning Australian comedian who thinks quickly and moves slowly. She is sardonic, laconic and, after numerous bone crunching accidents, bionic. Her droll delivery, delightful wordplay and heart-breakingly funny, self-deprecating observations have delighted audiences all over the world.
