About Our Organisation

Busselton Pride Alliance is an incorporated association registered with the WA Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety, and we operate under the Associations Incorporation Act 2015.

Strategic Objectives

Our objectives are:

  • To promote and provide a platform for LGBTQIA+ community of Busselton and surrounding areas to showcase their talents and voices through acts of celebration, commemoration, grassroots action and advocacy;

  • To improve the self esteem, health status and representation of the LGBTQIA+ community of all ages in the public sphere

  • To make visible the meaningful and positive contribution WA’s LGBTQIA+ community make to the wider community; and

  • To advocate for safe, inclusive community spaces, workplaces, businesses and schools.

Our Structure

  • Busselton Pride Alliance is an incorporated association registered with the WA Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety, and we operate under the Associations Incorporation Act 2015.

  • Our board members are all long term LGBTQ+ rights campaigners and come from a range of professions including nurses, artists, musicians, mental health services, and a former Federal Senator.

  • While our board and event helpers are all volunteers, we take our roles and professionalism seriously as we engage with Local and State Government departments and local businesses.

  • Our Chairperson is Brian Greig OAM (he/him). Brian was a Senator for Western Australia between 1999 and 2005, becoming the first LGBTQIA+ rights activist elected to any Australian parliament, and first federal MP to acknowledge their sexuality. In 1995 he was a pioneer as the first openly gay person elected to public office in WA as a Councillor for the City of Vincent. In the 2000s, Brian helped found national lobby group the Australian Council for Lesbian and Gay Rights, later representing WA for Australian Marriage Equality. Brian has been an advocate and campaigner for LGBTQIA+ people for 30 years, for which he was awarded Australian Honours in 2011. With a background in politics, media and communications, Brian moved to Busselton in 2019 with his partner and their two rescue dogs for a sea-change.
