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 – which includes people identifying as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, intersex, takatāpui, whakawāhine, tangata ira tāne, fa’afafine, fakaleiti, akava’ine, māhū, vaka sa lewa lewa, rae rae, fiafifine, fakafifine, palopa, kathoey, hijra, baklâ, genderfluid, genderqueer, pansexual, asexual, queer and questioning – as well as our whānau, family and friends.
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!
Auckland Pride 2020 is about connecting people with purpose. Powerful communities are created only when individuals join together around a common idea.
E kore e taea e te whenu kotahi ki te raranga i te whāriki kia mōhio tātou ki a tātou. The tapestry of understanding cannot be woven by one strand alone.
