Light up the Night gala ball for DV Awareness

Light up the Night Domestic Violence Awareness Foundation

The LGBTQ Domestic Violence Awareness Foundation will hold the inaugural Light up the Night gala ball on May 27, 2022.

The foundation promises a night of decadence and delightful entertainment. And it all takes place in one of Brisbane’s most beautiful and prestigious venues, the majestic Brisbane City Hall.

The elegant, black-tie Light up the Night Charity Gala provides an opportunity to support a magnificent cause while enjoying a sophisticated evening with friends. The evening includes a sumptuous three-course dinner in addition to a 4-hour beverage package.

An entertaining night out is guaranteed. What else could you expect with Karen from Finance of RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under fame as MC? Red Tie Band will provide musical entertainment and guests will also enjoy a charity auction and raffle. Heads of Noosa Brewing Co will sponsor pre-dinner drinks from 6 pm. The formalities then commence at 6:30 pm with the event concluding at 10:30 pm.


The LGBTQ Domestic Violence Awareness Foundation comprises a collective of passionate individuals, desperate to shine a light on an epidemic that’s been plaguing LGBTQ communities for far too long.

Although limited, research indicates that over 60% of LGBTQ people experience domestic, family and intimate partner violence. This needs to change! And we know, even without statistics, there is a fundamental lack of awareness, representation and understanding about the prevalence of abuse.

Because of this, LGBTQ people feel unseen and often have limited resources to draw from to get help.

It is the ambition of the LGBTQ Domestic Violence Awareness Foundation to confront these issues and to advocate for necessary changes in both the visibility of LGBTQ people’s experiences and the quality of response they receive when reaching out for help.

The foundation aims to create change and bring greater awareness to the issues to ensure that all people no matter their sexuality or gender identity can feel seen and believed and receive safe and inclusive support.

The Light up the Night Charity Gala is an 18+ event.
