Mahuru / September 2017

Kia ora and welcome to our Mahuru update, with a topical cartoon from Helen Courtney. This month we again focus on politics – it’s election month, after all!

We profile six more lesbian and queer candidates: two sitting MPs and four not (yet) in parliament. (Remember we profiled two wāhine takatāpui candidates.) They are all around the country. We also have a national update on the National Day of Silence, held in August every year.

Regional stories include Hamilton Pride (September), planning for Auckland Pride (February 2018), and Queenstown’s Gay Ski Week (also this month).

Our People page includes a cycling adventure story, and our Media page has an item on commissioned expressive portraits, as well as our dynamic Blog etc listings – do you read any you’d like to suggest we add?

Don’t forget to keep an eye on our Photos page, either: this is one (like Dyke Diary) that we update asap, not just at the beginning of each month.

Check out our expanding Dyke Diary, with events of interest to lesbians and queer women – 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!
