Rainbow Northland is RY’s Whangarei based youth group for queer and gender diverse young people aged 13-24.

Who goes to it?

We welcome anyone with a friendly smile! We’d love to hear from you on Facebook before visiting: Rainbow Northland Facebook group.

What happens there?

We provide a friendly and warm environment for the LGBTQ Youth in Whangarei. Rainbow Northland is a fun, supportive and informed environment for you to meet new people, make friends, ask questions, get advice, enjoy yummy food and drink, and generally just chill.

When and where we meet:

Every 2nd Wednesday, 4.30pm till 8.30pm at ONEONESIX (116 Bank St, Whangarei 0110). Check out the RY calendar to find out when the next meeting is.

Coming along once doesn’t commit you to anything; some people come to every meeting and some come when they can – it doesn’t matter. You’re always welcome.


Rainbow Northland has facilitators that lead each meeting, run activities and make sure things are going smoothly. You can get in touch with them by emailing: [email protected]

Like all RY groups, Rainbow Northland is totally drug, smoke and alcohol free.
