Text:A call has gone out for gay organisations and event organisers wishing to include an event in Auckland's Hero Festival 2003. The group of five businesspeople advising the Hero Trust on licensing the Hero brand for next February's festival say they hope any organisations or individuals who wish to promote their aims or raise funds will contact the group as soon as possible with their ideas so they can be considered for inclusion in New Zealand's biggest gay, lesbian and transgender event. "This year we are trying to pay as much of the accumulated Hero debt as possible," says group member Barry Davis, “but not all events will have to, or will be able to, contribute to this aim. Davis says there is plenty of opportunity for community groups to raise funds and celebrate at Hero time. He says two 'signature' Festival events, believed to be the Big Gay Out picnic and a Hero Party, are close to sign-off and several community organisations have already approached the group to have their events included.
