Tue 1 Mar 2011 In: New Zealand Daily News View at Wayback

Comis says the city was "like a warzone" after the quake Christchurch resident and recently crowned Mr Gay NZ Aaron Comis will share his experience of the quake when he appears as the Gay Auckland Business Association's guest speaker at this Wednesday's meet-up. The hunky and buff 32-year-old financial controller lives and works in the city and was at work when the catastrophic quake struck. He told Daily News shortly afterwards that the city was "like a warzone". He is in now Auckland escaping a life without power and water, ahead of a trip to Mardi Gras in Sydney this weekend, from where he will travel to the Mr Gay World competition in the Philippines. On Wednesday night Comis will address GABA's Fruits After 5 at Kamo. He will tell guests about his experience during and after the quake and the practical ways in which the community can help Christchurch. The gathering was to have been a forum to discuss community safety in the wake of concerns about rising levels of violence on K' Rd, but that has been delayed till next month's meeting on April 6 due to the quake and the stretched resources of the police. Fruits After 5 at Kamo, 382 Karangahape Road from 6pm Wednesday.
