2010 was the inaugural year for The GLORIAs. The GLORIA’s is a fun event that shines a light on outrageous, ignorant and plainly ridiculous public comments made about gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and intersex (GLBTI) people in our community every day.

The event is organised by Penny Sharpe, Labor member of the Legislative Council. This is not a fundraising event.

The GLORIAs are modelled on Meredith Burgmann’s annual Ernies awards, an event that has for the last 20 years given awards for the most sexist comments of the year.

Comments across the eight categories - Media, Sport, Politics, Law, Religion, Online, International and Silliest GLBTI comment made from within the GLBTI community, can be nominated by anyone at anytime at www.theglorias.com.au
