These imitation fur fabric shorts were worn by a gay man to the dance parties 'Devotion' and 'Deus' in the mid-1990s.
Devotion dance parties and parades were held annually in Wellington in the 1990s. Devotion was one of New Zealand's biggest LGBTI (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) community events of the 1990s. Along with the Hero Festival in Auckland, the dance parties, parades, film festivals and associated activities drew huge crowds. They were vibrant and safe places to publicly express identity and sexuality, and were welcoming to all.
The 1990s saw a blossoming of gay and lesbian pride, following on from Homosexual Law Reform in 1986. The Devotion and Hero festivals were some of the more public expressions of change in New Zealand society.
