Celebrate Pride at the TEU Rainbow Te Kahukura BBQ

Whether you’re part of the Rainbow Te Kahukura whanau or you’re an ally, we invite you to celebrate Pride Week with the Tertiary Education Union (TEU).

  • Where: C-block lawn
  • When: Monday 4 March, 12 – 2pm

We’re celebrating Pride with a TEU Rainbow Te Kahukura Pride BBQ (vegetarian and vegan options available), plus a fun “guess how many jellybeans are in our rainbow jar” competition.

All LGBTQIA+ staff and postgraduates, allies and supporters and Non-TEU members are welcome.

The BBQ helps increase the visibility of our Rainbow community on campus so if you’re LGBTQIA+, we encourage you to wear a rainbow pin or similar item (scarf, tie, t-shirt etc.) to make your identity visible to colleagues and students (as long as you feel safe and comfortable doing so, of course). 

Let’s show off just how diverse our community is here at UC.

A note for allies: while we appreciate your support, we request that you don’t wear a rainbow flag or other LGBTQIA+ symbols – please respect that these symbols belong to our community and are watered down if they are worn by allies, no matter how good your intent. If you want to make your support visible, Google ‘ally symbols’ for images you can wear instead.

See you at the BBQ!
