Christchurch Pride’s most luxurious event ‘Kahukura’ was a black tie dinner with a twist! Guests dressed in specific colours to create a rainbow when seated for dinner.
Kahukura, interpreted as rainbow, comes from Kahukuratītīa; goddess of the rainbow! Kahu (cloak), kura (to glow), titia (to adorn). The glowing cloak adorned across the land.
The event unashamedly raised money for the PRIDE Endowment Fund, set up to support Ōtautahi, Christchurch’s rainbow community.
MC’d by Eli Matthewson and featuring performances from the NZ Army Band, RuPaul’s Drag Race star Elektra Shock, Christchurch Drag royalty Little Miss Cinnamon and Joanne Neilson.
