Groups & events

Helping you connect with the wider community.

We know how important it is to be connected to your community. Check out our regular rainbow social groups in Ōtautahi Christchurch and across Waitaha Canterbury, or come along to one of our events throughout the year.

Social groups

We know how important it is to be connected to your community. Every week in Ōtautahi Christchurch, we hold social groups for the whole rainbow community - everyone's welcome, no matter how old you are, including friends, allies, whānau, and support people.

Every week we start with a little introduction all together, before splitting into dedicated spaces for our under-18s and our adults.

We also run a dedicated group for whānau, parents, caregivers, and kids under 13!

Our social groups are a great space to meet other people with similar experiences, to make new friends, and to connect with any further support you might need.

There's no need to apply or register, and there's no cost! Join us every Wednesday from 7-8:30pm at the Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetū (everyone), or the first Sunday of every month from midday at Tūranga in the Activity Room. We can't wait to see you!


Celebration is core to our kaupapa - it's so important that we get the chance to celebrate ourselves, our lives, and our community.

Qtopia runs events throughout the year in Ōtautahi Christchurch and Waitaha Canterbury to provide opportunities to celebrate, including our popular annual Pride Ball, alongside markets, marches, panels, learning opportunities, and more.

Keep an eye on our Facebook and Instagram for the most up-to-date information about our events.
