THE first annual gay pride week in Hamilton is jam-packed with exciting events, but a serious message is behind the festivities.

Principal sponsor of Hamilton Pride 07, the New Zealand Aids Foundation is hoping to spread the message about HIV and Aids.

Another highlight is the special benefit screening of the Rocky Horror Picture Show at Victoria Cinema. "Celebrate Pride Week in Riff Raff's home town with the ultimate in camp participation," organiser Lisa Stone said. "Film-goers can join the fun of this cult classic movie by doing the time warp, using props and dressing as their favourite characters."
