Auckland Pride Festival 2018

Q Theatre has been part of Auckland Pride since we first hosted the Pride Gala back in 2013 and it just gets bigger and better every year.

Q’s annual Pride programme creates a platform for LGBTQI+ artists, celebrates the LGBTQI+ experience, explores the multiplicity of identity and creates opportunity for artists to present work in the festival context that Auckland Pride Festival generates, in a meaningful and impactful way, one which speaks to the human experience.
