    Clear eye for the queer guy - 15-Jun-2005
    When Jonathon Hendry first saw Boys In the Band, he was a young gay activist watching a much debated film on video in his student flat in Wellington.
    The original stage-play had been written in 1968, a year before gay liberation erupted into mainstream American consciousness with a series of skirmishes between homosexuals and police in New York's Greenwich Village, which would become known as the Stonewall Riots.

    Controversial "Queer Classic" Returns to the Stage - 14-Jun-2005
    Nearly forty years after the "Stonewall Riots", which many say mark the beginning of the modern gay movement, Auckland's Silo theatre brings Boys in the Band back to life, 15 June - 2 July.
    This ground breaking play became a lightning rod for public discussion after its first performance off-Broadway in 1968. Boys in the Band was the first play to portray gay men and deal realistically with homosexuality before a mainstream audience.

    'Perverted little liar' jibe still hurts - 6-Jun-2005
    Lesbian former MP Marilyn Waring choked back tears at the women's convention in Wellington yesterday as she talked about what Sir Robert Muldoon said to her on the night he called the fateful snap election in 1984.
    "You perverted little liar - what do you think you are up to now?" the late Prime Minister snarled.

    Women look back, move forward - 6-Jun-2005
    There are rotund earth mother sculptures at the door, but it is all business inside the Women's Convention at Wellington Town Hall.
    The theme of the conference, Looking Back, Moving Forward, is particularly fitting for four women who attended the last United Women's Convention held in Wellington 30 years ago.

    That 70s show - 5-Jun-2005
    There were lesbian separatists. There were middle-class housewives. There was leg hair and a hell of a lot of dungarees. As the Women's Convention returns to the capital, Rosemary McLeod recalls the original 1975 feminist jamboree that launched a social revolution.
    Feminists are out in force this weekend in Wellington, and they'll be crowing. The Janus Women's Convention celebrates 30 years since the United Women's Convention in the capital in 1975, a Great Leap Forward into success.

    Kamp Camp a Success - 28-Apr-2005
    “My Mother made me do it!”
    That was the grateful reaction from one of 30 young people who attended the Takatāpui Rangatahui Hui / Queer Youth Camp in Northland during ANZAC weekend.
    Organised by the Northland Queer Takatāpui Support Group with assistance from the New Zealand AIDS Foundation, Northland Health and the New Zealand Police (Northland), the camp, according to evaluations from the participants, more than succeeded in its goal of promoting health, hauora/wellbeing, self understanding and self esteem among young gay, lesbian, bisexual, takatāpui and transgender (glbt) people.

    Christchurch’s gay, lesbian, bisexual, takatāpui, transgendered and inter-sexed (glbti) communities will be celebrating their gains in human rights equality, their loves, lives, and sheer diversity in what is thought to be the city’s first ever large-scale Gay Pride Week.

    Tapu Misa: Storms in a kava bowl - and the fallout wasn't pretty - 16-Mar-2005
    Oh dear. The feathers have been flying since the weekend's cultural festivities, and I don't mean those ubiquitous duck feathers that covered the ground at Western Springs during Pasifika.
    I'm talking about the storm in a kava bowl over the presentation of an award at the inaugural Pacific Island Music Awards, which was staged as part of the opening ceremony for this year's premier Pacific festival.
    The trouble began when the committee organising this supposed celebration of Pacific music decided to get a Samoan transvestite and designer, Lindah E, to present the award for best male artist.
