On 26 Feb we will gather in Albert Park where the very first gay liberation protest took place 50 years ago.
To create the energy needed to echo through the city during the Auckland Pride March we’re kicking things off at midday. Shop at queer-owned markets, warm up your vocals with chant practice, make a statement at our sign making station and get inspired by local community advocacy groups before we gather around the Rotunda for speeches.
The March route remains the same as last year, we will march, walk, and wheel down Bowen and Victoria Streets, then up Queen Street, and into Aotea Square.
Despite the challenges we face, there’s nothing better than being queer. After marching the streets demanding more for LGBTQIA+ communities, we’ll reconnect with queer joy at the Auckland Pride Party in Aotea Square.
Featuring two stages packed with talented rainbow artists, there’s something safe and accessible for every energy level - whether you want to grab a summer cocktail from one of our licensed bars and party all night or make memories with your friends in a quieter space. Celebrate queer joy your way at the Auckland Pride Party this summer.
