Your LGBTQI+ Business
and Professionals Network.

Our History

Since 1984, Rainbow Auckland has been New Zealand’s largest LGBTQI+ Membership Association providing support and advocacy on human rights issues for the rainbow community.

How do we do this?

Primarily we operate as a Membership Association providing a range of benefits and opportunities to businesses, individuals, organisations and community partners.

We aim to create a professional environment that is devoted to business and community support for LGBTQI+ Members through a selection of networking and social events. We also create a platform for existing successful businesses to promote themselves and provide support to new businesses that are trying to launch or grow.

For the past 17 years, through the generosity of our Members and the Auckland community, Rainbow Auckland supports individuals and LGBTQI+ organisations by raising funds for grants and scholarships, which are managed and distributed through the Rainbow New Zealand Charitable Trust.

Regular networking mixer events are held throughout the year on the first Wednesday of every month.

For up-to-date information on these and other events, please check our our Events page and follow us on Facebook.
