Join us for Pride & Progress: The Carnival Continues! The Auckland Pride Festival 2017 celebrates Auckland’s cultural and sexual diversity and is a safe space for progressive voices to be heard.

There are over 50 individual events all across Auckland – from Ponsonby to Manukau and Henderson to Waiheke Island – including local and international theatre and cabaret, art exhibitions, live music, film and digital media, literature, debates and discussions, drag and burlesque, sports and recreation, gardening, pets, pageants and parties!

Q Theatre is proud to be part of the 2017 Auckland Pride Festival and home to the Pride Gala for the 4th time. Pride Festival is a vital part of Q’s yearly programme, as an opportunity to showcase local talent from our rainbow community, honour our stories and celebrate wholeheartedly together.

Q is dedicated to the continued development of our pride programme, if you have ideas for 2018 please contact Q’s Producer.
