From 1–17 February, 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 seventh 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 2019 will run for two weeks and three weekends, from Friday 1 February until Sunday 17 February, right across the Tāmaki Makaurau region.
The 2019 Festival will feature over 80 individual events – including local and international 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!
Event and activity registrations for the 2019 Auckland Pride Festival are now open.
Auckland Pride 2019 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.
