We’ve also got an amazing line-up of community acts, including Iris G, Miss Ribena, Buckwheat, Whati Te Wake, James Malcolm, the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra and heaps more!
With over 100 stalls, the Big Gay Out Market Area features locally produced and specialty products, information stalls, and an abundance of food vendors, snacks and refreshments.
An R18 zone with bar service, the Stay Safe Dance Tent returns in 2018 with an incredible line-up of DJs. New to the Ending HIV Big Gay Out is the Garden Bar, an R18 area open to public with a range of beverages.

The Ending HIV Big Gay Out is organised by New Zealand AIDS Foundation – with the generous support of Durex, AUT, ANZ and Lush Cosmetics.
