Co-hosted by Queer Icons Chlöe Swarbrick and Ms Lady B, Auckland Pride’s 2021 Pride Gala is promising an unforgettable night of queer splendour as the event returns to Q’s Rangatira bringing an incredible lineup of Tāmaki’s queer talent.

Headlined by the phenomenal House of IMAN and COVEN-Carangi – organisers say the Gala is guaranteed to sell out quickly!

With direction from award-winning theatre artist Freya Finch, the Auckland Pride Gala will bring the community together for a much needed night of queer excellence.


With 2020’s Gala said to be “Reputably, the best Pride Gala opening ever,” Gala organisers are committed and “can’t wait to do it all over again!”

The unforgettable lineup includes jaw-dropping circus skills from Carnies and Queers, unbelievably tight choreography from Night of the Queer, side-splitting comedy from Janaye Henry, critically acclaimed playwright Victor Roger, an extract of the campest intergalactic musical comedy Gays In Space, amazing performers Drag King Jack & Michelle Kasey from Code Switch, and incredible spoken word from Daniel Goodwin & Rose Northey!

Put together as more than just a taste of what’s to come in the Auckland Pride Festival programme, The Gala is packed with the best live art in town; there’ll be burlesque, vogue, song, dance, spoken word and perhaps even a dash of everyone’s favourite queer clowns.

The party will continue after the Gala in Q’s Lounge with DJ Zeki on the decks!
