    What we're about

    Open to LGBTQI community members in the Wellington region, and their friends. Our activity options are as diverse as the community and open to suggestions. Looking for people to go to a gig with you? Want to try your chances in a bake off? Drag race anyone? Day trip you've been dreaming about? With endless possibilities, we'll always keep it fresh ;)

    Some meetups are for Fresh Fruit members only mainly due to the venue/type of activity. Other meetups will have the option to bring a guest who may or may not be LGBTQ, but should be friendly to our Fresh Fruities (eg. allies, friends, family, etc).

    It is really important that you read our Rules and Code of Conduct (click on the 'pages' tab) so that you know how the group works and what our expectations are of each other. Members who don't abide by the rules (eg inappropriate behaviour or multiple 'no shows' at events) may be removed from the group. We will ask you to agree to the rules and code of conduct when you join the group.
