Pink Drinks

Pink DrinkPink Drinks is a regular event run by various GLBTI groups throughout New Zealand. The emphasis is on socialising and connecting with the local GLBTI community- anyone gay, lesbian, bi-sexual, transgender or intersex is more than welcome, as are out of towners just looking to meet the locals.

The idea is simple. Every 6 weeks, a Pink Drinks social gathering runs usually on a Saturday evening between 5 and 7 pm.  It’s hosted at a different location, and by different hosts each time, with attendees offering to host the next event. Everyone brings their own drinks, but the hosts provide nibbles, glasses and ice, asking a donation to help cover the costs of catering. We’ve recently also introduced ‘bring a plate’ for hosts that don’t wish to cater, but still want to host a pink drinks.

Even though the official get together only lasts for 2 hours, more often than not, we continue to party on much longer.  Gay In The Bay hosts Pink Drinks at various places around Bay of Islands.   The last year or so, Sunday afternoon has become popular, particularly in the cooler months. This is entirely up to the host, so keep an eye on our calendar and subscribe to our mailing list to get the latest details of our next event.
