2017 Rainbow Election Forum

2017 Rainbow Election Forum

 

When: 22.08.2017 at 6pm

 

Where: St Andrew's on The Terrace, 30 The Terrace, Wellington, 6011

 

FREE ENTRANCE

 

================DESCRIPTION=====================

 

From the early days when the LGBTTQIAP+ community was in the closet and constantly in fear of homophobic attacks, to today where we have equal rights and protections on paper, we have made a huge way together. However, people tend to believe that the discrimination has stopped and that there is nothing to struggle for. But we know that there is a lot to fight for, from Transphobia through to economic rights, discrimination in budgets and high rates of youth suicide.

 

In this election forum, parliamentary candidates (for New Zealand’s 52nd parliament) will show what they have done for the LGBTTQIAP+ community in their last term in office and what their plans are for their next term. They will address the adversities that the community faces and will also ANSWER YOUR QUESTIONS to convince you that they are your right choice!

 

What a way we have come as a community together, but there is still more to fight for! So no matter who you are voting for, your presence is a vote for the LGBTTQIAP+ community!

Queer Pillows social networking event

  • 24 Upland Road Wellington, Wellington, 6012 New Zealand (map)

Queer Pillows is an interaction between community members in an intimate and safe space. Here in Queer Pillows we can speak about issues that we would not speak about out of the queer circle. We can chose to talk about homophobia/LGBTQ+ phobia experiences that we have had, discrimination that you felt and projects that you want to create. This is a space for advice, or even just a place to speak and be heard.

The time will be guided by a host as a group dynamic. It will be around two hours in a private space.

If you want you can bring your own pillow, if you want to bring refreshments, then feel free (just make it vegan). We will serve tea and vegan cookies.

If we are at the maximum capacity of 15 people and there is demand for more people, then we will try to open an another event.

Please send to Rainbow Wellington a message to confirm participation.
