Waitangi Park

The inaugural Out in the Park will be held here in 2016. The celebration grew out of the annual Out in the Square, which in turn grew out of the Lesbian and Gay Fair - first held at Newtown School in 1986 during homosexual law reform ("a fair for a fair law"). In this recording Georgina Beyer addresses the 2015 fair which was held in Ghuznee Street (due to bad weather conditions in the park).

Follow Oriental Parade inland (Waitangi Park will be on your right). Cross to the other side of the road at the Cable Street traffic island. Keep following Oriental Parade as it changes into Kent Terrace.
