Who We Are


DEFGLIS is a non-partisan volunteer charity that supports LGBTIQ+ serving members, ex-service members and veterans of the Australian Defence Force and their families.

We are a volunteer-led and volunteer operated incorporated association with strong connections with the Australian Defence Force.

We work towards enhancing inclusion and respect, to enable greater delivery of Defence outcomes.

The association is non-partisan in nature and does not endorse or make donations to any political party.

Our Values

We have four core values that express what we stand for and are core to all of our initiatives.

They guide how we work together, and shape our decisions and actions.

Our values are consistent with Australian Defence Force and Australian Public Service values.
