Organisers say about 15,000 people attended the Big Gay Out in Auckland on Sunday.

The event, now in its 15th year, is a highlight of the fortnight-long Auckland Pride Festival.

Big Gay Out spokesperson Joe Rich says he is pleased with the turnout and it's great to see so many people supporting the rainbow community.

He says sexual health was also a focus with about 25,000 condoms being handed out.
