Justin Lester, Wellington City Mayor, says "We are working to make Wellington one of the most liveable and inclusive cities on the planet for everyone. The Wellington International Pride Parade is amazing for its colour and vibrancy, and is a sophisticated showcase of the Pride community and a celebration of the city’s diversity and talent.
"The Pride Parade is always a great event on the Wellington calendar.” Says Hon Grant Robertson, MP for Wellington Central, “it’s a chance for our city to show off our celebration of inclusion and diversity and for the Rainbow community to be loud and proud of who we are. I can't wait for 2019's instalment!"
