From 1–16 February 2020, Auckland’s rainbow communities will come together to celebrate our unique mix of cultures, sexualities and gender identities in Aotearoa New Zealand’s most super-diverse city! Moving forward into its eighth year, the Auckland Pride Festival is New Zealand’s largest and loudest social and cultural programme of events for our rainbow communities – the theme for which, is Our Liberation, Our Celebration, Our Pride.
Our theme for the 2020 Auckland Pride Festival embodies the modern values of Pride around the world. One that is rooted in our rich history of activism, and creates space for a fierce queer celebration of identities. It speaks to our ability as a community to navigate many different spaces simultaneously. To push for change while exalting in our gains. This embrace of both fight and festivity is not only a central part of our identities, but core to our commonality as diverse queer communities.
Auckland Pride 2020 will run for two weeks and three weekends, from Saturday 1 February until Sunday 16 February, right across the Tāmaki Makaurau region.
The 2020 Festival will feature a wide array of individual events – including theatre and cabaret, comedy, live music, dance, visual art exhibitions, film and digital media, literature, poetry, debates and discussions, drag and burlesque, youth events, workshops, sports and recreation, food and markets, gardening, pets, pageants, parties – and any other activity that showcases the incredible creativity, passion and storytelling ability of our multi-talented rainbow communities!
