Who We Are

Aurora is a charitable organisation that fundraises to support grassroots LGBTQ+ organisations. 

Proudly run by volunteer LGBTQ+ community members, for the LGBTQ+ community, we understand the unique and changing needs of our community and are committed to making sure those working on the frontline have the funds they need to keep saving and changing lives.

For over 20 years Aurora has had a special place in the hearts of Australia’s LGBTQ+ community – creating real change through celebration, friendship and collaboration.

How will the Funds be used?

Aurora is committed to raising funds to support LGBTQ+ communities across Australia. We are proud to support programs and projects that support and empower the health, wellbeing and connectedness of our community.
