It's October and that means one thing... It's Pride month in Kapiti! We're turning five and we've got five days of fun, activism and celebration.
We're so excited to bring you this year's programme. Check out what's on offer, clear your calendars, dust off your most fabulous outfits and get set for a five year celebration like no other.
We'll have some of our popular staple events like the (World's Shortest) Pride Parade, dance party - the theme this year is 'Old Skool' - and the queer quiz, and we've added some new ones such as the incredible theatre piece, Man Lessons and a concert featuring local legend, Coral Trimmer.
All are welcome to this all inclusive fabulous little festival
Nau mai, haere mai ki Paekakariki
Nga mihi ki te whare tupuna
Nga mihi ki a Papatūānuku
Nga mihi ki te hunga mate
Nga mihi ki te hunga ora
Nga mihi ki Ngati Haumia
Tena koutou tena koutou
Tena koutou katoa
