Who we are
Established in 1981 as the Gay Business Association, The Sydney Gay & Lesbian Business Association Inc. (SGLBA) was the first LGBTIQ Business Association in Australia. It evolved from the need for a safe place for LGBTIQ business people to meet like-minded professionals during a time when being LGBTIQ was still a criminal offence in New South Wales. In 1998 the SGLBA adopted Articles of Association and enhanced its professional standing by electing a Board of Directors. The SGLBA is one of the foundational LGBTI organisations in New South Wales, along with the AIDS Council of NSW, the NSW Gay & Lesbian Rights Lobby, the Bobby Goldsmith Foundation, and the Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras among others.
