Auckland Pride 2023 boasts an expansive arts programme that transcends mediums, disciplines, and artforms. From drag artistry to the most experimental edges of live art. From plays to improv comedy. To exhibitions to gigs and literary panels. Community events include a fantastic range of workshops, parties, speed dating, and even a little bit of touch rugby.

“Auckland Pride is excited to be celebrating and uplifting artists at the centre of our 2023 festival” says Auckland Pride Creative Director Nathan Joe. “This is a programme that places the artists in the spotlight. A programme that displays the phenomenal range and versatility of our community. A programme that will unify our queer communities through the unique intimacy of live events.”
