Whiringa-ā-rangi / November

Kia ora and welcome to our Whiringa-ā-rangi update. This month we have national stories about violence in relationshipsRainbow Youth’s accessible learning resource to help increase understanding and support of sex, gender and sexuality diversity; and a new print and video resource for takatāpui.

Wellington has a Pride festival and human rights conference coming up early next year, and a Wikipedia edit-a-thon at the end of this month.

The Auckland Pride organisation is consulting with the community ahead of the 2016 event. Read about the LGBTTIQ Writers Festival, and the sports event, Proud to Play. November in Auckland also sees the Fafswag Pacific ball, and the GABA fundraising auction. In December, there’s the westie Lesbian ball.

You can make an international contribution too, providing feedback on a proposal for measuring LGBTI inclusion. Have your say!

Our People page talks about inquiring into diversity in secondary schools; the Media page features several film-related stories: lesbian content in the national Short Film Festival, a review of Freeheld, now on national release, and Auckland’s Academy Cinema’s LGBTQ nights; you can read about mosaics at the Charlotte Museum; and Jade du Preez outlines 10 factors contributing to marriage equality on our Opinion page.
