Celebrating 50 Years of Pride in Auckland

This year we acknowledge and celebrate the anniversary since Aotearoa’s first ‘Gay Day’ in April 1972 which was a protest by a newly formed Gay Liberation Group, led by Ngahuia Te Awekotuku in Auckland’s Albert Park. It was a courageous act by a small group of people and the catalyst that bought our communities and the fight for rights out into the open.

Since then, Pride has morphed into a month-long celebration that coincides with the international Pride movement and celebrates our diverse LGBTI+ communities across Auckland and includes several large-scale events such as the Big Gay Out, March and the Pride Gala. How did we get here? How have our protests become Pride parades? We welcome back the Auckland Heritage Festival after a two year hiatus and will exhibit items and images from our collections, sharing the history and stories of Pride at the Te Atatū Peninsula Community Hub.
