Kia ora and welcome to our Mahuru update. Three more local body candidates are interviewed this month, two from Te Wai Pounamu/South Island. If you are a candidate we haven’t spoken with yet, or know someone who is who we should speak with – do contact us – there is time for one more round of interviews in the Whiringa-ā-nuku update.
On the News page you can read about national events: the Day of Silence, researching lesbian mothers, the Living Wage campaign. You can also read about upcoming events – Hamilton Pride week is starting soon! – and reports of recent events.
Our Te ao pāpāho/Media page features stories on photography and television, and on our Nga wāhine/People page you can read about Gina Cole, ‘Fijian-infused, queer-inflected’ writer.
And check out Dyke Diary – we update this whenever new events come in. You’ll see a number of events included as lesbian because they are women’s events: the Living Wage campaign is a good example. So are the Breast Cancer Foundation’s Pink Star Walks in Tamaki Makaurau, Ōtautahi, and Te Whanganui-a-Tara. Do you have suggestions for other local, regional, or national women’s/lesbian events we should be listing?
See our Services page for classified ads and businesses, currently free. Email us your Dyke 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!
