Wellington International Pride Parade 2019

Audio from the Wellington International Pride Parade held in May 2019. The parade was originally meant to take place on 16 March, but after the Christchurch terror attacks on the 15th, it was moved to 11 May. A special thank you to the participants and organisers for allowing us to record the parade. This event also marked the Chief of Defence's first participation in a pride parade.
