Kia ora and welcome to our Hōngongoi update, with lots to read and savour.
We have photos of the London Pride Parade, with images from Berlin of tributes to the people killed in Orlando. The NZ International Film Festival brings a feast of women’s films to many centres , and we preview three about relationships between women. Read about government responses to research on sexual and partner violence in our communities, Charlotte Museum displays and workshops, GALS concerts in Auckland and Hamilton, and the upcoming Femme party in Christchurch. Sharon Hawke discusses Ngāti Whātua o Orakei and Janet talks about being a darts fan on our People page. Charmaine Poutney and Tanya Cumberland write about the recent hikoi to Parihaka on our Opinion page. Our web reviewer gives her opinion of web series Pot Luck, and Louise Welsh and Zoë Strachan say farewell after a fruitful writers’ residency.
