The organisers of Auckland's new LGBT community festival OurFest have today revealed details of the variety of events planned next month - including the formal 2010 OurFest Awards dinner. Kicking off on Saturday 6 February, new events which come under the umbrella of OurFest 2010 will include a Comedy Showcase at Galatos, a self-portrait art exhibition at Dot's Bar, a Lazy Sunday Tea Dance at Kamo, a Bowling Tournament, a Rainbow Youth Open Day,'s Big Gay Zoo Day, a GALS Quiz Night, an amateur drag competition, an evening of jazz, a short film screening evening, an Auckland LGBT ANZ Bank. Any surplus funds raised by the event will be donated to LGBT charities Body Positive and GenderBridge. "As one of just a handful of entirely gay-owned and run production companies in New Zealand, RedFlame Media is proud to offer its support to OurFest," says Glenn Sims, Managing Director of RedFlame Media. "The OurFest Awards are an opportunity to recognise and celebrate the groups and individuals that have made a contribution to our rich diversity over the past 12 months. We are especially pleased that the event will benefit Body Positive. After a particularly challenging 2009 for the organisation, we have high hopes that sufficient funds will be raised to allow Body Positive to continue to offer its critical support services to HIV+ New Zealanders." Tickets for the awards are now on sale for $85 per person. Find details on the official OurFest website. Matt Akersten - 21st January 2010
