FriGay Drinks started six years ago and was the brainchild of Christchurch community stalwart Jill Stevens. “I really felt apart from Pride events there was a lack of casual events in a city that had no gay bars,” Jill tells express. 

The relaxed social event takes place roughly every six to eight weeks, “to be honest I fit them around my own social schedule, or when I am feeling like we need a good get together,” she confides before cheekily adding, “I have been known to have one when people start complaining they have been single to long and need to get laid!” 

The event attracts a diverse range of ages and genders representing the best and brightest of Christchurch’s close-knit friendly community. Expect another FriGay drinks to happen around the end of July. Follow @chchlgbt on social media to keep updated!
