The Outlook

Queer news, views and culture

A show for and about the gay community in New Zealand. Hosted by Dan Lake and a revolving cast of guest hosts, we'll be talking to fresh talent, finding out what's going on in the community, and discussing what it means to be gay in Aotearoa.

This week on The Outlook we attempt to get to the bottom of all the chaos around Auckland's Pride Parade. Will it go ahead? We talk to one of the board members.


There's an LGBTI film festival happening in Auckland at the moment. We speak to Elizabeth Ireland from Academy Cinemas about what will be hitting the screen.


Plus, as the summer of love approaches, we have tips on how to keep safe when using dating apps like Grindr and Tinder.


Steven Oates joins Dan Lake on the last episode of The Outlook for 2018.
