OurMarch is an opportunity to reclaim the streets of Tāmaki Makaurau.
Gathering in Albert Park at 4:00pm on Saturday 8th February, OurMarch follows Bowen and Victoria Streets, before dancing up Queen Street and concluding in Aotea Square for OurParty.
Like last year we will be marching alongside our friends at Spark and we’d love for you to join us! It would be great to have a large presence of OUTLine so we can champion our organisation and have fun together!

OurParty is immediately after OurMarch and is at Aotea Square until 10pm on Saturday 8th February.
Thanks to Spark’s generous sponsorship of this event, OUTLine has a unique opportunity to have a significant presence at the party with a chill out zone, a volunteer recruitment area, photo wall and a chance for our leadership to talk on stage about what we do.
Stop by and say hello to the team when you need a break from the party vibes and to learn about what we do!

Come visit us in our OUTLine lounge to talk with staff and volunteers about what we do, how to get involved in volunteering and what needs and opportunities for support you see within Aotearoa’s rainbow communities
The OUTLine Lounge is an opportunity for people who have been thinking about volunteering at OUTLine to come and meet the OUTLine team and some of our volunteers to get an idea of what it involves. It is also a chance for people to come and learn about OUTLine more generally.

Let’s Talk: A Workshop For Parents
As a parent, care giver or whānau member of a queer, and/or gender-diverse child, it’s natural for you and your whānau to go on a journey to understanding.
This journey could mean different things for everybody, but the most important thing is to make sure you have the right support systems around you to provide the best care for your child.
Join OUTLine & RainbowYOUTH at the Ellen Melville Centre on Saturday the 15th of February, 1-4pm for a workshop on how to best support your child. We’ll be covering understandings of gender & sexuality, and providing tips on how to access the best support for your child, and your whānau.
