Pride month is back—a time to celebrate the diversity of our community and platform LGBTQIA+ creators, events, spaces and history. There are many ways you can celebrate Pride in Parnell for 2023.
Wednesday 8 February
Parnell Library is hosting a special Rainbow Rhymetime celebrating acceptance, diversity, and uniqueness. Join in for a free Rhymetime session like no other, with stories, music and fun games. Complete the session with an easy rainbow-themed craft session.
Sunday 19 February
Auckland Museum warmly welcomes LGBTTQIA+ families and their allies to a fun-filled day of craft activities and entertainment, including drag queen storytime with Anita Wigl’it (from RuPaul’s Drag Race – Down Under) and Ivanna Drink.
Add to their vibrant chalk pavement drawings as you enter the building into Te Ao Mārama South Atrium, which will be the base for crafts such as badge making and a giant handprint artwork.
Pride cupcakes will be available for purchase at Tuitui Museum Bistro & Café.
Social Cooking are thrilled to announce their latest collaboration with one of Auckland’s most sensational drag queens, Ivanna Drink. To celebrate the Auckland Pride Festival 2023, Ivanna will be joining them to host their newest event format, Drag Masterchef!
Throughout Pride month (February 2023), Ivanna will be available on request to host your next team building event.
