The Queer Agenda is Auckland Pride’s newest initiative to support queer events outside of Pride Month, aiming to continue the incredible energy of Pride year-round while continuing to support our artists, event-organisers, and wider community.
It’s a platform for event organisers to promote their events from March – December, and create a unified calendar for our community and queer visitors to Auckland to connect and experience the best of what Tāmaki Makaurau has to offer. The Queer Agenda will promote a network of safe spaces and events for our community to enjoy, and ultimately encourage more venues to join.
Events that submit to The Queer Agenda will get an event listing on the Auckland Pride website, promotion across our social media platforms, and in a monthly ‘what’s on’ email. There is a small fee to be included in The Queer Agenda – however we are actively seeking partnerships to remove this fee for event organisers.
Registrations for free community events will be free, the cost of which will be covered by the fee paid by larger, ticketed events. So not only will events be paying to be featured across the platforms of Aotearoa’s Largest Pride Festival, they’ll be further supporting their community so they can be promoted alongside them.
All events will be reviewed by the Auckland Pride team to ensure they fit with our values, as well as safe, accessible, and inclusive.
