Parade Concept / Kaupapa

Aotearoa New Zealand’s rainbow communities comprise of many diverse groups and individuals.  The objective of the parade is to provide a safe place for rainbow communities to have a voice, celebrate acceptance, and demonstrate the value of diversity and inclusion.

  • The theme for 2020 is Colour & Celebration.
  • Through its management of the walking parade, Rainbow Pride Auckland (RPA) aims to provide a platform to showcase the creativity, storytelling and talent of the rainbow communities. 
  • We encourage participants to use the parade to celebrate their successes and struggles in a way that fosters growth, diversity, inclusion and togetherness within and between all rainbow communities.
