Outspoken religious leader Brian Tamaki has had the venue, where his Christchurch speaking event was to be held, cancel on him after activists were set to welcome him with a "big gay party".
The Destiny Church leader has targeted gay people in the past, saying sinners, gays and murderers caused New Zealand's earthquakes.
He had been due to speak at the Haeata Community Campus in Aranui on Monday, but the booking was cancelled by the venue.
Protesters had been planning to meet Mr Tamaki at the event with a Queer Quake Mardi Gras, but activist Josie Butler says they're happy to have proven their point to Tamaki.
It is unclear if Tamaki has rescheduled the event, but Ms Butler says they'll be ready next time he comes back to Christchurch.
"I think Brian's heard us loud and clear, and if he genuinely believes gay people can cause earthquakes... hopefully he's too afraid we'll cause a quake when he comes to quake city," she said.
Ms Butler, who shot to fame for throwing a sex toy at former Economic Development Minister Steven Joyce in 2016, organised the party to protest against Mr Tamaki's "homophobic hate slur".
She said it also aimed to show people attending Mr Tamaki's talk, who may be struggling with their sexuality, that it's "okay to be gay".
