2017 Rainbow Election Forum
When: 22.08.2017 at 6pm
Where: St Andrew's on The Terrace, 30 The Terrace, Wellington, 6011
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!
