Prime Minister Christopher Luxon has abruptly left the Big Gay Out festival in Auckland’s Point Chevalier after being confronted by Gaza protesters. The annual Pride event is being held today in Coyle Park as a celebration for Rainbow communities and their allies. At a media standup this morning, Luxon said he was looking forward to going to the Big Gay Out and felt comfortable there. “I went there last year. I loved it. Talk to the Rainbow community and what are they fixated on at the moment? Rebuilding the economy, restoring law and order, and delivering better health and education.”
