Stand Up Events Melbourne Inc. is a Not-for-profit incorporated association dedicated to fighting sexual and gender discrimination in Australian sport. We are proud of what we stand for and what we have been able to achieve since we launched in 2015. But there is still so far to go.

We partnered with Monash University to conduct world first research to understand why homophobia is still prevalent in male team dominated sports. Based on this research, Stand Up Events was able to create customised preventative programs with current AFL Players to implement into grass roots sporting clubs.


The ongoing goal is for the preventative programs to create safe and inclusive environments for everyone, regardless of sexuality and/or gender.


Sport, and life, is a place for everyone.


On top of our research and preventative programs, we generate awareness and enact change through speaking events as well as working directly with sporting clubs, companies and schools.

If you would like to learn more, we would love to hear from you.
