Some of Auckland's Events organised by the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender communities.
The HERO Festival is New Zealand's biggest annual gay and lesbian pride celebration. Like Sydney's Mardi Gras [http://www.mardigras.org.au/], the festival, a two week celebration of film, theatre, cabaret, dance and sport, culminates with an all-night dance party. The party, utilising international DJs on three dance floors combines contemporary gay, lesbian, Maori, and Pacific island cultures, giving it a truly unique 'kiwi' flavour and atmosphere.
The Hero festival occurs every February.
The Auckland gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender communities organise a large number of other events throughout the year.
