Auckland May See Return of Gay Pride

Published Date Author: , February 15th, 2012

Auckland Gay Pride to Return?Prime Minister John Key has again signalled that a gay pride parade may return to the streets of Auckland, as he spoke to record crowds at the city’s Big Gay Out festival.

Speaking at the festival in Pt Chevalier’s Coyle Park Key said Auckland Central MP Nikki Kaye had been working with Auckland mayor Len Brown on plans to bring a parade to Ponsonby Rd next year.

Key also said at last year’s Big Gay Out that there were plans afoot to get a parade back up and running.  A hero parade was last held in Auckland in 2001, before it was cancelled because of mounting debts.
