How Long in Pride: 2.5 years
What doing Pride means to me: To bring the LGBTQIA+ community together in ways that encourage friendship, strong networks and diversity, and to encourage a sense of belonging, of pride and of confidence. To be visible in the wider community and to be recognised and respected for who we are within it, and to put on and facilitate exciting and creative events in a safe and positive environment regularly throughout the year.

How Long in Pride: 37 years supporting LGBTIQ community in New Zealand
What doing Pride means to me: I love being part of Pride because we still need a visible reminder to the wider community that we are here. Christchurch Pride are an amazing group of people from all walks of the community creating special events to celebrate and acknowledge our community
