Pride in the Park Picnic

VOYCE Central team took a couple of rangatahi atawhai along to the Tauranga Moana Pride Picnic. It was an awesome chance for the young people to connect and experience diversity, inclusivity, and creativity with the LGBTQIA+ community.

The rangatahi who attended this event really enjoyed themselves, having a great time indulging themselves in all of the activities and the environment. They were even joined by Sunny the dog, who repped rainbow colours for the picnic.

Some quotes from the rangatahi who attended were:

“I felt safe with my kaiwhakamana.”

“I really enjoyed hanging out with my friends and boyfriend in a place where it was okay and safe.”

“I felt included.”
