Auckland's Premier Queer Event on Valentine's Day


Blending a celebration of diversity with safe sex messages is central to the Get it On! Big Gay Out, an annual event sponsored by Get it On.

Originally started to provide a safe and supportive social environment for people of diverse sexualities and gender, Big Gay Out has become a celebration and an opportunity for the New Zealand AIDS Foundation (NZAF) to deliver safe sex messaging to around 10,000 attendees.

Performers & Politicians

Annie Crummer will headline Big Gay Out 2010. Annie C is a New Zealander who has toured with lesbian icon KD Lang, and performed in both Rent and as Killer Queen in We Will Rock You. Also, Pop sensation Will C Barling will be joined onstage by sexy DJ Stevolicious.

The Get it On! Big Gay Out has extensive political support; Prime Ministers, Mayors and Opposition Leaders and MPs have all attended New Zealand’s biggest gay festival.

Follow the BGO Festival on Facebook. "If you happen to be visiting New Zealand and close to Auckland in February, you should add this festival to your itinerary," says IGLTA Ambassador Mark Proffit (a Kiwi himself).
