We are sorry to say we have suspended publishing Lesbian News Aotearoa.
Our current group is too small, and does not have enough time or energy to continue.
LNA is a national online news publication by, for, and about lesbians that has been online from 2015. Before that, the group produced a monthly print publication, the Tamaki Makaurau Lesbian Newsletter, continuously from September 1990.
A lot of lesbians have contributed over these 28 years: developing and sourcing ideas, writing stories, taking photographs, creating the monthly layout, proof reading, enveloping the print newsletter, processing subscriptions, updating group listings. A lot of cake has been eaten and coffee drunk each month. Readers have been very important – our reason for establishing and continuing publication – and have also directly contributed stories and ideas.
We are not disappearing. All the existing monthly updates will remain accessible and searchable on the website. We will continue to maintain the Facebook page (facebook.com/tmlnnewzealand), and will check the email address every so often (LNAotearoa@gmail.com).
Thank you for being part of our community.
