Text:Dunedin Pride Week returns on 8th–16th September, and UniQ Otago says it's going to be huge, diverse, entertaining and informative. Opening with the 3rd Annual Lavender Globe Awards and After party, a range of activities on offer include a Rainbow Day in the Octagon, Camp Karaoke, Dance Classes, A Queer Book Exchange, the Annual Queer Art Exhibition, Spectrum Dance Party, and Family Fun Day. "With still heaps of other events in the pipeline," says UniQ's Emmis Ellis. Pride Week will also include a weeklong Queer Seminar Series at the University, with lecturers and post grads presenting topics of LGBT interest over the lunch break. Dunedin Pride Week aims to provide the wider community a chance to interact with LGBT locals, and raise the profile of Dunedin's LGBT community. Some delay due to a UniQ staffing issue means organisation of this year's Dunedin Pride Week is taking place rapidly, and the complete calendar of events is yet to be confirmed. Organisers are still looking for more volunteers to help with event coordination and further ideas for activities are welcomed.
