Thank you to all the organisations and individuals who have made their support of the inclusive Pride Pledge values visible in our community. Without your proud support we would not be able to work towards increasing visibility, raising awareness of LGBTTQ+ issues and needs or run "rainbow" workshops to help make our workplaces safe.
A very big thank you to you all for your support
The Ray White culture is based on family values. We are a fourth generation family-owned business and one of our core values is to treat all "as you would treat your family" - with respect, dignity, trust, understanding and inclusion; and we all have accountability for our personal behavior in this regard.
We see our relationship with the Queenstown Pride Pledge as a natural extension of these family values - and we are excited to be a part of it.Ray White Queenstown
It is my great honour to be patron of the Pride Pledge. I am immensely proud of our district’s commitment to championing tolerance, inclusion and diversity. This initiative encourages and rewards work environments which provide all LGBTTQ+ people with a safe and healthy workplace where they are free to be themselves.
As I have been, you will be thrilled to see that so many of our local businesses have wholeheartedly embraced the pledge and proudly display their commitment to it.
Our family too, through our work and community engagement, stand side by side with our local businesses in recognising that diversity builds strong communities and vibrant societies and we think that should be celebrated!
Congratulations to all involved in making the Pride Pledge a success. You are contributing to the bold character that helps make this district, in my view, the very best place in the world.

The Queenstown Pride Pledge Community is the founding Pride Pledge Community in Aotearoa / NZ and it was from the support of this dynamic little town that this initiative has grown. This community has, since day one, engaged with rainbow training opportunities, supporting local pride events and sincerely doing their best to become a more inclusive and a safer town for all. If you are in town or from town, please remember to support those who support us.
