AVC Pride

Celebrating & empowering our LGBTQIA+ community

Australian Venue Co proudly supports & celebrates the LGBTQIA+ community. We are an inclusive, welcoming and supportive workplace and believe in equality and opportunity for all.

Our Pride Initiative is driven by our newly-formed Pride Committee, who are working together to deliver education, celebration, respect and community for our LGBTQIA+ community.

Through AVC Pride we will regularly evaluate our social impact and take steps towards positive, progressive and productive change.

Brisbane’s biggest and best rainbow festival! For 22 years, The Whickham has hosted Big Gay Day – a day filled with fun, frivolity and a whole lot of colour.

Wear It Purple

We’ve painted AVC purple for the last two years with Wear It Purple Day becoming an annual event for our crew to get involved in.

Wear It Purple strives to foster supportive, safe, empowering and inclusive environments for rainbow young people and we’re proud to be a part of the day and help raise funds for Minus18. Check out how we’ve celebrated below…
