The capital’s glbti community will get its chance to farewell US Ambassador David Huebner and his partner Duane McWaine at a Rainbow Wellington event next month.

The group has had a strong association with the openly-gay diplomat and feels like it’s ‘losing an old friend’.

“We were very keen to organise something where we could say farewell,” says Rainbow Wellington Secretary Tony Reed.

“We expect a fairly informal affair, where the departing couple can mix and mingle, plus a couple of brief speeches to say goodbye.”

The farewell drinks will be held at the Fringe Bar (26 Allen St) on Friday 6 December from 5PM, with Huebner and McWaine expected to arrive around 6PM.
