Crowds of Wellingtonians have turned out for the city's first Pride Parade in nearly 25 years. With a theme of A World Of Fantasy, organisers say the event is about positive enthusiasm and excitement to celebrate Wellington's LGBT community. Starting on Cambridge Street, the parade travelled down Courtenay Place and Taranaki Street, before arriving at Waitangi Park for Out In The Park. Hundreds lined the streets along the parade route. Whistles, bead necklaces and lollipops were handed out to the cheering crowd by drag queens and topless men.
