Organiser Bobby Goldsmith Foundation

Organiser of ART MATTERS

Bobby Goldsmith Foundation (BGF) is Australia's longest running HIV charity. Founded in 1984, BGF provides a range of services and programs that include direct financial and practical assistance, emotional support, financial counseling, housing and study support to empower people living with HIV (PLHIV) to live well. BGF is a community organisation that works to improve the physical, mental & emotional health and well-being of PLHIV who come from all walks of life.

From the very beginning, our roots have been fully embedded in the LGBTQI communities. Our namesake, Bobby Goldsmith, was a Sydney gay icon – a man who had great success at the Gay Games in 1982 and a much loved figure of the Sydney gay nightlife scene.

Bobby was also one of the first Australians to die from an AIDS-related illness in 1984. BGF was established by a group of Bobby’s mates, who rallied together to raise money and equipment to make his final weeks as comfortable as possible. BGF’s mission was formed in some of Sydney’s iconic gay venues and we continue to benefit from a close relationship with many LGBTQA+ businesses.

BGF embraces diversity in staff, clients and the wider PLHIV community. Over 75% of our staff and clients identify as gay, lesbian, transgender or non-binary and more than 80% of our supporters come from the Australian LGBTQA+ communities.
