3. Pride in Identity workshop
Join Wellington Pride Festival Board members in a 90 minute wānanga to explore ideas about what the festival means, where their kaupapa comes from and possibilities for the future of Pride.
This 90 minute workshop will use co-design principles to better understand what our roles are in creating meaningful change for aspirational rainbow futures. It runs from 2pm-3.30pm on Sunday 11 September, and registrations open on Friday 9 September. Check out the Wellington Pride Festival website for more information.
4. Out of the ashes: Celebrating queer histories
Head along to the National Library to learn about the queer people who came before us, celebrate queer resistance and mark major queer anniversaries that show how far we’ve come. This session is hosted by The Lesbian & Gay Archives of New Zealand Te Pūranga Takatāpui o Aotearoa.
This event is in person or online, and runs between 5.30pm-8pm on Thursday 15 September. Check out the Wellington Pride Festival website or the Facebook event.
5. Support a charity
Even if you can’t make it to an event, you can celebrate Pride by supporting a Queer Charity. There are many wonderful options, but why not check out OutLine Aotearoa, Gender Minorities Aotearoa and Intersex Trust Aotearoa New Zealand.
Watch out each Friday for a fun list of five great activities to do, places to explore, or things to discover in our awesome city.
