Text:Sure, it's all smiles now! Tonight is the Great Auckland Pride Debate! Team Nikki and Team Jacinda will battle it out on the topic: "Marriage is a Queer Notion". Steven Oates gives us ten reasons why you don’t want to miss this! Auckland MPs Nikki Kaye and Jacinda Adern are heading the teams, while the teams also feature Urzila Carlson, Jan Logie, Claudette Hauiti, Jan Maree, Garnet Station's Verity George and Caluzzi's Campbell Orr. David Farrier will be the “ringmaster” and it’s a fundraiser for Rainbow Youth with all profits going to them. Go and buy a ticket as it will be a night to remember. If you are still not convinced, organiser Steven Oates has ten reasons you can’t miss tonight! 1. See six of the most fabulous, yet fierce, women going head to head 2. In one corner Team Nikki Kaye, in the other Team Jacinda Ardern 3. A Dolly Mixture of pollys and comediennes 4. Mass debating "Marriage is a Queer Notion" 5. How potty-mouthed are they really? 6. Will the fearless David Farrier, our ring master, have to wash anyone's mouth out with soap and water? 7. The opportunity to join in and heckle! 8. The chance to bribe our venerable and sexy panel of judges. 9. The best and only crowd to be seen in for Monday night libations. 10. Feel all warm and fuzzy, having a fabulous night and raising funds for Rainbow Youth at the same time. Sure beats a sausage-sizzle! Doors open at 7PM at GalatosLive, 17 Galatos St. The debate starts at 8PM. Tickets: $25 with $20 concessions. Available on the door, at The Woman’s Bookshop and at the Rainbow Youth office. - 18th February 2013
