Rainbow Northland

Rainbow Northland is RainbowYOUTH’s peer-support group based in Whangārei for anyone under 27 years old, who identifies as queer or gender diverse (LGBTIQ+).

What happens there?

Rainbow Northland is a fun, supportive and inclusive environment for you to meet new people, ask questions, get advice, enjoy snacks, and generally just chill.

We usually use the Facebook group to get updates about what things are happening during the next meeting. 

When and where we meet:

We meet weekly on Wednesday, 4-5pm at ONEONESIX (116 Bank St, Whangarei 0110). Check out the calendar on the RY website to find out when the next meeting is: www.ry.org.nz/calendar

Coming along once doesn’t commit you to anything; some people come to every meeting and some come when they can – it doesn’t matter. You’re always welcome!


Rainbow Northland has a facilitator that leads each meeting, runs activities and makes sure things run smoothly. You can get in touch with them by emailing [email protected]

Fun facts:

Rainbow Northland is the first RainbowYOUTH group in Whangārei!
