Whiringa-ā-nuku / October 2017

vote penguinKia ora and welcome to our Whiringa-ā-nuku update, where we have started our review of the elections. We have one new lesbian MP, and we’ve focussed on results for the women candidates we profiled in previous months. We’ll update the story after final results are released and coalition talks are concluded.

You can have your say and ensure lesbian voices are included in a national community consultation about Rainbow people and alcohol. And Rainbow Youth have a new leader.

We have two Pride event stories: Paekakariki will be totally Rainbow at Labour weekend, and planning for Auckland Pride events is well underway. Check out the story for deadlines and ideas for events in February 2018.

Have you been wondering what happened with Auckland Council’s Rainbow consultation? Read the story on our News page.

Our People page profiles Peggy Link and her passion for animal welfare, and our Media page outlines lesbian content in the second Auckland Ladies Litera-tea for 2018, and honours radical lesbian and feminist Kate Millett, who died last 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!
