Lance TV Inc is a multigenerational, intersectional platform developing and sharing content developed for and by LGBTIQ+ communities and beyond across regional Victoria. Lance TV aims to showcase LGBTIQ+ storytelling, representation and visibility through arts-based practice and to support the connectedness of LGBTIQ+ communities across rural and regional Victoria.
Currently, the primary focus of Lance TV Inc. has been the creation and broadcasting of our television show, Lance TV, which screens on C31 Melbourne and simulcasts to Facebook. The program is viewed an average of 2,000 times per month on Facebook alongside data from OZtam which indicates that Lance TV was viewed by a further 20,000+ people every Friday across Melbourne and Geelong in June 2020. Lance TV’s growing audiences serve as a barometer of the need from LGBTIQ+ communities to hear LGBTIQ+ stories.
Which leads us to now, the place we currently sit, where we are growing beyond our current scope of work to expand our platform to support content creators, storytellers and creatives across regional and rural Victoria. As we enter our expansion phase, our focus is on building our foundations and connecting with LGTBIQ+ communities across regional and rural Victoria.

However, as we enter an expansion phase and seek to grow our platform beyond Lance TV, we aren’t looking for your typical Board member. We are looking for people who can support the core foundations of Lance TV Inc. but are also keen to roll up their sleeves and jump into the deep end.

As mentioned, we are looking for Board Members who will be actively engaged and involved in shaping and advancing the scope, strategy and governance of Lance TV Inc. in accordance with our vision, values and objectives. This will require regular attendance at board meetings, engagement in subcommittees where needed/appropriate and occasionally some hours (2-5) a fortnight to carry out supporting tasks.
