Its time again to hold the annual Wellington Pride Youth Ball.
The Ball will be part of the Wellington Pride Festival and will take place on February 29th, 2020. Hosted by young people and supported by older folk from the rainbow community.
For youth who don't conform to sexuality or gender norms the usual school balls are often unwelcoming - pressured to act a certain way, dress codes enforced, and environments which feel unsafe. This is a ball run for youth, by youth - Which offers a safe and diverse alternative to high school balls where all attendees are encouraged to come how they are comfortable and with the people they want to.
This years theme is "Celebrate You", a theme which encourages youth and families to celebrate their individuality and identity and express their brightest selves in a space which is safe, and supporting for them.
Feel free to jump on board and dress up for the theme by donning whatever outfit makes you proud to be you!. We will be turning the Te Marae space at Te Papa into a magical venue for this space, even including a few performances by some of Wellingtons local Drag superstars!
We offer a "pay it forward" option on these tickets so if you would like to sponsor tickets for the youth please contact us on the email below.
