LYC Big Gay Out


The LYC Big Gay Out returns to Point Chevalier’s Coyle Park on Sunday 9 February from midday till 7pm.

Now in its 15th year, the LYC Big Gay Out is a cornerstone event on New Zealand’s rainbow calendar. Last year, more than 13,000 people attended – and 2014 promises to be the best yet!

The Durex main stage will feature headline performances from Good Shirt, Kittens of the Internet, and Lavina Williams, along with loads of community acts, including Buckwheat & Tess Tickle, Cindy of Samoa, Miss Ribena, Buffy & Bimbo, LACE, Willie & Raymond, L.O.V.E, the Caluzzi Girls, and many more.

Coyle Park will be filled with more than 120 market stalls offering everything from food and retail to information and support. The Burnett Centre will again be on site to provide free and confidential sexual health and HIV testing with results communicated the following week.

Sponsored by Urge Bar and Caluzzi Cabaret, the LYC Beer Garden and Dance Tent will be as popular and pumping as always.

The LYC Big Gay Out Dog Competition is back, hosted by Steven Oates and his dog Ruby – and the Coyle Park playground will be open, with face painters and performers to entertain the kids.

For those needing transport from the city, LYC Big Gay Out buses will depart from outside Family Bar on K’ Road to Coyle Park every 20 minutes from 11.30am – with the last bus returning from Coyle Park to Family Bar at 8pm. Bus fares are only $2 each way.

So come early with your family and friends, bring a picnic and some sunblock, and enjoy a fun afternoon filled with entertainment and community celebration!
