He Kākano Ahau – From The Spaces In Between

Film: He K*#257;kano Ahau – From The Spaces In Between.

A short film about a courageous takatāpui activist is fighting for true diversity in our Gay Pride celebrations.
New Zealand's Pride celebrations are glitzy and glamorous, but takatāpui activist Kassie (Ngāti Raukawa ki te Tonga) is challenging the inclusivity of the festival. The historic Wellington Pride celebration forces Kassie to make a decision. Will she take part and speak for those who are both queer and Māori?
This short documentary uses English and te reo Māori to tell an intensely personal story of a courageous wahine fighting to be heard. View it at loadingdocs.net/he-kakano-ahau/.

GayNZ.com is no more

At midnight on May 31, 2017 GayNZ.com retired. After sixteen years of linking, reflecting, entertaining and informing New Zealand's glbti communities their THREE core volunteers decided it was time to relinquish this role. Their entire archive of over 18,000 news stories and features have been captured by LAGANZ, the Lesbian And Gay Archives of New Zealand, and they will make it accessible at some stage. In the meantime a lot of the content is accessible.

The website was harvested frequently by the Internet Archive. A section in PrideNZ.com has links to the original categories, article titles and text captured from GayNZ.com before it ceased. Each entry has a link to the text of the article, and many also have links to the original articles held in the Internet Archive. This is the only index available at present.
