Now in its 3rd year, organisers of the LGBT+ Pride Parade in Auckland have announced a date for next year’s Parade, with the 2022 event taking place on Saturday 19 February 2022.
“We’re absolutely excited to announce that the Rainbow Pride Parade will take place
on the weekend of February 19. For the first time since Rainbow Pride Auckland re-
established the Parade, we will welcome the addition of motorised floats making this
coming year the biggest, loudest and proudest to date.”
2022’s parade follows March’s COVID-postponed 2021 event, which saw 15,000 people came together to celebrate the Rainbow Pride Parade, one of the few LGBT+ events globally to go ahead during the global pandemic.
Organisers add that they feel events such as Auckland’s Rainbow Pride Parade are more important than ever adding: “Given the effects of the Covid-19 measures: mental health, family dis-association, domestic violence, and social isolation are more widely reported within the rainbow community and beyond. Now more than ever, the parade is a beacon of hope for all voices to be heard.”
Organisers of the event are also welcoming LGBT+ communities and their allies can share what they wish to see from Rainbow Pride Auckland via a short survey here.
