Auckland Pride Parade

by Jackson Perry

The Auckland Pride Parade took to Ponsonby Road today as part of the Auckland Pride Festival. While it differed in many ways from the Hero Parades I remember from 1992 and beyond, it was still a great day, and I, like many others, am hoping it becomes a regular fixture again on the Auckland calendar.

The moment of greatest significance for me was seeing Maryan Street walking with her placard. I found myself yelling out in support almost involuntarily. It reminded me that while we've come a long way, we still have further to go.

Feel free to share your photos, stories, or memories of previous pride parades.
