The time has flown by and it comes the time again where we celebrate Pride Week…

Why are we here? Because the struggle for equality has always been one of grass roots movement. We are here and we are doing this, because as much as ever celebration of diversity is required. We as the Rainbow Community Groups of Kirikiriroa are standing up for the need that is still apparent. Until we are free from discrimination due to our sexual and/or gender orientation we need this. We are unfairly punished for simply existing, the fight is not over. – message contributed by Melissa Goodman, one of the Pride Week organisers.
