Prime Minister John Key has been booed off stage at Big Gay Out festival by a group of vocal anti-Trans Pacific Partnership protesters.
Mr Key – wearing a pink polo shirt – appeared to cut short his speech at the event in Pt Chevalier as he was drowned out by a group of about 30 protestors yelling anti-TPP slogans.
‘[We are] supporting the gay and lesbian community, we support a message to keep safe and we want you to do that’ he told the crowd in a brief speech.
Pink glitter was also thrown at Mr Key and his contingent.
National’s Auckland Central MP Nikki Kaye also faced a chorus of boos when she spoke.(cont..)
