Event description
Hey Sweaty Betty! Make a difference and party till you're sweaty SIS!

About this Event

Are you ready to get sweaty?

Jump Jam, the exercise initiative that blends dance and exercise is a classic Kiwi Kid experience we have all grown up doing. So why not Sweat for Pride doing a little throwback of Jump Jam, but this time with our special sickening instructor, CRYSTAL QUARTZ!

If Jump Jam with a Drag Queen doesn't already have you sweating in awe! Crystal Quartz Auckland's POP princess wants to show you a good time! She’s coming in with all your childhood classics and a few extra bops to make you SWEAT!

We are taking a stand with Sweat for Pride, Rainbow Youth, and Ending HIV NZ to take a stand for our community! Not in prayers, but in Sweat!

Everyday life is still too damn hard for our Rainbow communities. Stigma and discrimination lead to higher rates of mental health issues and even suicide. And then there are the physical illnesses - STIs like syphilis and HIV disproportionately affect our community.

• 1 in 5 of our Rainbow youth have attempted suicide

• Our gay and bi guys account for almost 80% of new HIV transmissions

• More than half of our Rainbow whānau have experienced mental illness

This Jump Jam session is about supporting our Rainbow Community here in Auckland, raising funds for good causes and of course, having a good time with good company.

The event is open to people of diverse gender identities, sexualities as well as allies. All fitness levels are welcome, there will be moves for everyone.

When: Saturday 15 August,12.00 - 1.00 PM

Where: Greyman ‘Fitness’ Solutions, level 1/65-73 Parnell Rise, Parnell, Auckland 1052

Koha on entry is appreciated - all money raised will go to Sweat with Pride to help Aotearoa's Rainbow Community.
