Text:Christchurch Pride Week 2011 has been announced for May 6th-15th, returning to its original two weekend format. The organisers are on the lookout for additions to this year's line up, to join favourites from previous years: the Queer Fair, Bingo and a monster finale party are all locked in. Queer Takes, the third annual Christchurch Pride Week Art exhibition continues to build momentum, and will open on Monday 9 May. After a couple of year's absence, queer cinema makes a return to the programme, in conjunction with Number 8 Films. Organisers say they've taken the same approach as previous years: “more of the good stuff, trying some new stuff. We're proud to have introduced something new every year, as well as showcase the variety of queer groups at work in Christchurch.” Get it On! remains a major sponsor this year and punters can expect the condoms and lube message loud and clear again in 2011. “We're offering a warm welcome to the rainbow communities around the country-put this in your diary now!” say the organisers. Deadline for event applications is Monday 7 March. Check updates on and join the Facebook group. - 6th February 2011
