Join us for a night of coffee, queers and the most wholesome entertainment known to humankind – board games.

Whether you like cards against humanity, or a classic game of chess, Breaking Boundaries’ Board GAYmes night has you covered. We’ll provide plenty of games – but feel free to bring your favourite along, especially if it’s something strange and obscure that no one really knows the rules to. We’d love to play it with you!

Delicious homemade snacks and drinks will be available for sale – plus an awesome raffle prize pack!

In association with Auckland Council's Proud Centers.

Get ready for a boogie and a giggle for an evening of good people and bad 80s music! Don’t worry if you can’t dance (or don't "do" exercise) neither can we! This event is fully accessible and open to people of all ages, expressions and abilities. With prizes for best dressed, and cold drinks for sale, this is guaranteed to be the most fun you’ve ever had while "exercising".

This event is supported by Auckland Council's Proud Centers.
