The Association was founded in 1981 as the Gay Business Association. In 1994, to reflect its broadening membership base, the Association changed its name to Sydney Gay & Lesbian Business Association Inc. In 1998 the SGLBA adopted new Articles of Association and created a board of directors.
SGLBA contributes to our community through its Good Works Program and donates thousands of dollars to community causes each year. Recent recipients have included the Gay and Lesbian Rights Lobby, PFLAG, the AIDS Trust of Australia, Sydney Gay and Lesbian Counselling Service and 2010.
The Association has embarked on a number of projects to showcase the talents and the diverse business interests of our members. SGLBA has in past years hosted an annual Gay and Lesbian Expo, the first such event of its kind held in Australia. Since 1997, the Association has published an annual Business Directory, which is now incorporated into the Pink Directory. We also initiated and participate in the www.gaybusiness.com.au project. These projects reach thousands of gay and lesbian consumers.
