Every year the build up around town is electric and the week-long festival brings a new energy into our town.
Here at Go Orange we are committed to all LGBTTQ+ people having the freedom to be safe, healthy and visible. We will use our voice and influence to support visibility, safety, tolerance, love, diversity and inclusion of all LGBTTQ+ people in our town and company.
Go Orange are proud sponsors of Winter Pride festival and Gold supporters of the Pride Pledge, the highest level of membership for Queenstown businesses to take. This membership means that we support the Pledge all year round, facilitating Pride Pledge workshops for all our staff on inclusion and diversity. One of our major accomplishments to date has been signing up with Rainbow Tick, new to us for 2019, making a commitment to bettering visibility, safety and inclusion of the LGBTQ+ community in our workplace.
Embracing diversity by celebrating and valuing different qualities people bring to work creates an inclusive culture, ensuring a stronger more productive workforce, after all diversity cannot flourish without having a culture of inclusion.
This year to celebrate Winter Pride you will see our rainbow covered buses heading up the hill to Cardrona and around town. Frank the tank and our brand new Unimog’s will be rolling out the military vibes at the main festival activity and spreading the rainbows around central Queenstown. The beautiful Milford Haven will proudly be flying a rainbow flag as she journeys around Milford Sound. Go Orange are proud to fly the flag right through until next year’s festivities and continue to support the incredible festival.
