GABA members attending the Special General Meeting, voted strongly in favour of a name change to Rainbow Auckland Incorporated.

The main objective of the change is to more accurately portray GABA’s place and purpose within the wider LGBTI community.

A new logo and branding is currently under development which will follow the three pillars of GABA’s constitution being “to connect business, professionals, and our communities”.

The name Rainbow Auckland will be adopted incrementally and formally announced to the wider community at a grand gala event scheduled for July 9th at Sky City to mark the 30th anniversary of the Homosexual Law reform Act.
