Rainbow NZ Charitable Trust
Wellington International Pride parade last weekend was a triumph of diversity, inclusivity and FUN! The Trust was proud to support the event and provide funding including the main stage entertainment featuring the Orchestra Wellington world premiere performance of PRIDE FANFARE, commissioned by renowned kiwi LGBT I+ composer Gareth Farr. It was reported as a cacophony of percussion, outrageous costumes and riotous celebration.
We congratulate the organisers for embracing the entire LGBTI+ community including our corporate friends, and heroic service men & women from NZ Defence Force and the New Zealand Police who proudly marched in uniform. Wellington has re-set the bar on inclusive celebration, and inspiring leadership that Auckland and now many more regional PRIDE organisations can aspire to. Well done Wellie!
