Dunedin Pride co-co-ordinator Poppy Williams said Dunedin Pride’s LGBTQ youth group, Alphabet Soup, picked a theme of "vintage decades" for the ball. The high school-aged crowd of about 120 mostly dressed in 1960s, 1980s, and 1920s costumes, but even a couple of fairies and elves showed up.

The night was a great success, she said.

"It was fabulous, honestly," she said.

"It was just an amazing experience."
