THE ENDING HIV BIG GAY OUT IS BACK FOR 2017!
Mark your calendars now because you don't want to miss New Zealand's biggest harbourside celebration of rainbow diversity.
Big Gay Out 2017 is brought to you by Ending HIV. We can end new HIV transmissions in New Zealand by 2025 by continuing our love for condoms, testing more often, and embracing new tools.
For more information, including the main stage schedule, visit www.biggayout.co.nz.
We are delighted to announce we'll be headlining with PARSON JAMES direct from the US and the up and coming kiwi band, OPENSIDE.
We've also got an amazing list of local acts including Lavina Williams, Jimmy Moore & Cas.D, ANJI, Charlotte Yates, Buckwheat, Miss Ribena, Susanne Paul, Aziz Sa’afin, Cindy of Samoa and heaps more!
URGE EVENTS BEAR GARDEN
The legendary Bear Garden is back in a larger space with a big bar and a shady, chill-out zone!
STAY SAFE DANCE ZONE
2016 saw the best Dance Zone yet and we intend to continue this in 2017 with a larger space, a larger bar, more platforms to dance and more performances.
You'll also need to keep an eye out for a rather large surprise.
FAMILY BAR BUS TO THE ENDING HIV BIG GAY OUT
Catch the air-conditioned bus to Coyle Park and avoid the hassle of finding a car park. The Party Bus will shuttle back and forth from Family Bar and corner of Williamson and Ponsonby Roads to Coyle Park every 15 minutes from 11.30am to 8.00pm.
The Ending HIV Big Gay Out Marketplace will host more than 100 stalls featuring locally produced and specialty products and an abundance of food, snacks, and refreshments. There’ll also be a large variety of rainbow community organisations and political groups.
