Telco Belong Sponsors Victorian Queer Arts & Culture Festival Midsumma

Belong is proud to announce its partnership with Australia’s premier queer arts and culture festival, Midsumma, with the telco coming on board as a Major Sponsor for the 2022 Midsumma Festival program.

The telco’s major sponsorship follows its belief that as an organisation, it has a responsibility to make our world a more inclusive place, and in supporting diversity in all its forms.

Belong’s sponsorship activity will be led by its internal LGBTQIA+ network, BE Proud, which was created with the intent of nurturing employees to feel supported and safe, no matter how they identify.

Jana Kotatko, Belong CEO and executive sponsor of Belong’s LGBTQIA+ community, BE Proud, said, “The Midsumma Festival is an incredible celebration of diversity and inclusion and ensuring that all Australians feel they belong. It unites the community by shining a spotlight on all the wonderful things that make us who we are, and we’re incredibly proud to be playing a small part in supporting the ongoing success of the Festival.”

Midsumma CEO, Karen Bryant, added, “Belong and its BE Proud community has proven to be a business that aligns wonderfully with the values we hold dear at Midsumma. We’re looking forward to working with the team to continue to deepen its connection to the LGBTQIA+ community.”

Midsumma is Victoria’s largest queer arts and cultural organisation, bringing together a diverse mix of LGBTQIA+ artists, performers, communities and audiences. The festival will see an explosion of queer events that center around hidden and mainstream queer culture, involving local, interstate, and international artists.

The Midsumma Festival program comprises a curated Midsumma Presents line-up plus the community-driven open-access stream, to share with you the lived experiences of those voices at the margins, the expression of queer history, and the celebration of new ideas and stories that come to life through world-class art and performance.
