The Auckland Pride Board says the Pride Parade will go ahead next year, despite reports it had been canned.
Last month, a number of major corporate sponsors withdrew support after the board requested the police didn't wear uniforms in the parade.
The board went on to survive a vote of no confidence and raised $30,000 in community donations towards the parade.
Following a hui last night, the Board said it was commited to a community-led parade and was working hard to figure out what that looked like.
"The Auckland Pride Board will put all of its efforts in ensuring that there is a space for our community to march and be visible during the Pride season - a community-led vision for a relaunched Parade," the Board said in a statement.
Without corporate sponsorship, the parade's shape and form would not be like previous years, it said.
"As the Board's community funding gathers strength, we will reinvent the Gala in a way that represents the community vision for Auckland Pride," it said.
