The Military Pride Ball is the main event for the Defence LGBTI community, families, friends and allies to celebrate achievement and champion inclusion with distinguished leaders from Defence and the community. Now in its sixth year, the event promotes a safe workplace for everyone, professional networking and exchange of best-practice ideas.

By bringing this sector of the community together, we seek to generate a culture of inclusive leadership and promote visible support for LGBTI people in the workplace. The gathering is the only annual event of its kind that provides a significant opportunity for LGBTI personnel and families to hear from senior leadership.

The 2024 Military Pride Ball will feature performances by the fabulous Lancer Band as well as an amazing soon to be announced entertainer.

The Military Pride Ball is the annual fund-raising event for DEFGLIS, and is open to everyone, not just our uniformed members. So grab your friends, family and colleagues and get ready for a night to remember.

The majestic Crown Sydney will be the home of our flagship event this year in the Pearl Ballroom on Level 5.
