Wellington, New Zealand – Alive with Pride!
The Wellington International Airport in New Zealand has painted a giant pride rainbow on the embankment next to their runway to celebrate inclusivity and the hosting of the Wellington Pride Festival from March 8-24 and to welcome delegates attending the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, and Intersex Association (ILGA) World Conference from March 18-22.
Every year Tū Whakahīhī e Te Whanganui-ā-Tara celebrates the LGBTQIA+ community with two weeks full of a diverse range of events, performances and activities organised by groups within the community.
The Wellington Pride Festival is organised by a group of elected volunteers from our LGBTQIA+ community, Out Wellington Inc, who are committed to creating an inclusive festival with and for our diverse queer whanau. Please support our community and Festival by donating via give-a-little.
