Synopsis

Marching girls and boys, Camp Mother and Camp Leader, even synchronised lawnmowers, dance down Auckland’s Ponsonby Road in a celebration of gay pride. The theme of this edition of the (nearly) annual 90s street parade was Age of Aquarius, fitting given the heavy rain, and the parade went ahead despite controversy that almost saw it cancelled. The parade was saved by sponsorship from Metro Magazine after the City Promotions Committee declined the request for funding. The parade attracted 70 floats, and up to 200,000 spectators.

It was the best night of my entire life, hard to imagine that it was 13 years ago though, I was one of the dancers on the Out Magazine float. It didn't matter about the rain, we were all so hot from dancing down Ponsonby Rd, that the rain came as a huge relief! Thank You HERO, it is a night I will never forget.
