The always popular pride event kicks off at 7pm and tickets can be bought for $10 on the door. Head to the Hagley College Cafe for a fulfilled evening. Boys, you better that favourite pair of underwear in the wash right now, Thursday night’s Menfriends Underwear Party is not one to miss and you don’t want to be leaving standing in the cold for not obeying the strict dress code. The mischief begins at 6pm and the Sexual Health Clinic will operate extended hours from 6.30-11pm. Friday night Agender extends an invitation to all LGBTI folks, friends and family, to join them at their ’T’ Party for a social evening of fun, chat and laughter. They will supply the music just BYO drinks and a plate for supper from 7pm. Saturday at 5.30pm you can get yourself along to the Three Boys Brewery Tour and get a taste of some of New Zealand’s finest craft beer while checking out how it’s made. If you time things well you made even be able to head off on the Pride Bus Trip at 6.30pm, pick up at The Twisted Hop. Easter weekend means liquor licensing prevents a Christchurch Pride party with drinking but who said a lack of alcohol will stop the party! Sunday is the Big Eat Out: Pride Dinner and Dance Party from 8pm. Organiser says, “Come on down to Winnie’s for an awesome feed and gossip with your gaggle of gays from 8pm. Dinnertime entertainment will be provided by your favorite Queen’s. We are also super excited to be bringing you fresh from Auckland Pride hot DJ Jordan Eskra. He’ll be on the decks from 12am till the early hours and as of midnight, the liquor licensing laws goes back to normal so we can party hard!” Lastly celebrate the end of a wonderful festival at the Official Chch Pride After Party at Winnie Bagoes City after the ‘The Big Eat Out’ from midnight onewards.
