Here-turi-kōkā / August

Kia ora and welcome to our Here-turi-kōkā update, profiling our first two lesbian local body candidates in Auckland and Wellington. See our News page for the activities of groups in Albany, Auckland, Hamilton and Hawkes Bay. Read about crowdfunding queer resources and tackling racism.

Our Media updates this month include live performance in Hamilton and Auckland, and the chance to see or hear events again (or for the first time): a short film from the 2015 International Film Festival, and guests from the Auckland Writers Festivals of 2016 and 2015.

How many lesbians have received an official honour for working with the lesbian and other rainbow communities? Read about one of the recipients in this year’s Queen’s Birthday honours on our People page.

And check out Dyke Diary – we update this whenever new events come in. See our Services page for classified ads and businesses, currently free. Email us your Diary, Social and Support group updates and we’ll put them online as quickly as possible. We welcome comments (at the bottom of every page) and contributions. Thanks!
