OurPride

OurMarch was held in Tāmaki Makaurau on Saturday the 8th of Feb. A community process informed the takeover of these events after robust community consultation. The result of the consultation has meant a rich and vibrant celebration inclusive of all genders, cultural groups and variations in sex characteristics was visible on the day.

Auckland Pride states  "OurMarch champions the kaupapa of OurPride, through liberating and celebrating with Auckland’s rainbow communities. OurMarch is a demonstration of energy, unity, and the rich diversity of our community."

We are proud of our ITANZ trustee and intersex advocate Eliana Rubashkyn for being one of the many community members to promote the event.

Intersex inclusion was clear on the day, with yellow and purple colours mingling beautifully with the rainbow and trans colours also present.  The intersex flag banner led by Mani and Eliana was supported by many wonderful allies and friends.
