Rainbow Pride Auckland is opening applications for its 2021 Parade today, encouraging all community groups and organisations both big and small, to take part in a celebration of diversity on Saturday 20 February 2021.
Groups that want to apply are required to fill in a short application form that is available at rainbowparade.nz/parade. From local LGBT+ groups to larger businesses and brands, the Parade continues to showcase the very best of Auckland’s diverse communities.
Auckland’s Ponsonby Road continues to be a beacon of diversity and inclusion and the home of parades for the rainbow communities. Last year Rainbow Pride Auckland achieved a return of the Pride Parade in a walking format, with over 10,000 spectators lining Ponsonby Road.
This year in light of COVID-19 and the impacts this has caused to many businesses and community groups, the walking Parade format will return to Ponsonby Road in 2021. Thus reducing the cost and overheads required to participate in the parade, while maintaining the support, celebration and commitment to our rainbow and ally communities.
Opening applications for the Parade is an exciting time as we start the countdown to Pride Month in Auckland. There will once again be opportunities for individuals who are not affiliated with any LGBT+ organisation to join the Parade. More details will be released in the coming weeks.
Community Groups and Businesses can register for the 2021 Parade online at rainbowparade.nz/parade
