Rainbow organisations skip Wellington pride parade

From Morning Report, 8:50 am on 24 February 2020

A group of rainbow organisations say they will not be participating in the Wellington International Pride Parade this year.

They say it's too much about corporates and not enough about the community.

Rainbow Wellington Committee member Craig Watson said in a statement the group is keen to connect the whole community.

He said it's "important to see that both sides are well heard and that the community has a voice".
