UniQ Victoria's Traffic Light Party returns

Wed 7 May 2008 In: New Zealand Daily News View at Wayback

"This year's Traffic Light Party is going to be bigger and better than ever," says Victoria UniQ Co-President Justin Curreen-Harris. The annual Traffic Light Party is organised by UniQ Victoria - Victoria University's representative group for LGBT students and their friends - and has proved to be a popular event in previous years among university students and the general LGBT public alike. "Not only will there be Go-Go Dancers as in previous years, but also performances by Ellie Kat - the reigning Miss Drag Wellington - as well as hot gay tunes to keep party-goers boogying all night long," Cureen-Harris announces. "It's a pretty simple theme", says Nathan Cooper, UniQ Victoria's other Co-president.  "Party-goers wear green if they're single/available, red if not, and orange if unsure or somewhere in between. Coloured ribbons will be provided on entry, for those unable to wear the colour of their choice, and to avoid any confusion due to colour ambiguity." "What’s more," adds Cureen-Harris, "The Chocolate Cake Company has been kind enough to donate some scrumptious cup-cakes as spot-prizes on the night. So don't forget to bring your best dance-moves!" The Traffic Light Party is UniQ Victoria's biggest fundraiser, with this year's proceeds going towards getting a team of delegates to the national UniQ conference in Dunedin later this year. The party will be held at Subnine - 9 Edward St, Wellington - on Saturday 17 May, kicking off at 9 pm.  Tickets will be sold on the door at $5 for students, and $10 for non-students.
