Haratua / May 2017

Post Pride depressionKia ora and welcome to our Haratua update.

We thought Jade du Preez’s strip was timely given that many Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch women may be in withdrawal after Pride festivals. Take heart! We have national and regional news items – almost all good news, too: the Topp Twins are planning a new film, swimming success in the World Masters Games in Auckland, pay equity has made significant progress (though we need to be mindful of further, future plans for change), there’s a Rainbow political panel coming up mid-month, and it’s time to start planning for Queenstown’s Gay Ski Week (September).

Did you miss something, or do you want to check back on a story from earlier this year, or last year? A story archive is available from the dropdown menu under the News tab.

Our Media page has a new cartoon by Helen Courtney, two stories about the forthcoming Documentary Film Festival, and a recommendation about reading May Sarton.

Read about South Otago farmer Megan Barclay on our People page, and read Nadia Gush’s Opinion on Translesbians in lesbian feminist spaces.

Check out Dyke Diary – we update this whenever new events come in. We include women’s and other events of interest to lesbians – send us your suggestions for other local, regional, or national women’s/lesbian events we should be listing.

See our Services page for classified ads, national Rainbow training and accreditation services, 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!
