Your guide to events in Nelson, New Zealand
Saturday 16th November 2019
Dr Elizabeth Kerekere:
Tīwhanawhana uses Māori culture and values to reframe how we talk about gender and sexuality in this country. Elizabeth will present on her signature Whare Takatāpui framework. She will also share stories from her recent work overseas.
Q-Youth: Speaking our language.
Q-Youth will explore what being a part of the rainbow community means to our rangatahi and what the rainbow community can look like in Whakatū. We will discuss the importance of language in relation to belonging and inclusiveness and how considering one's actions, words and thoughts can help make workplaces, social spaces and communities more 'rainbow' friendly.
InsideOUT Kōaro: Being allies and receiving support.
Amber and Bronwyn will facilitate a wānanga about what allyship and support looks like in different contexts, especially focusing on the takatāpui community. We'll talk about how to be an ally for others, and how to maintain our own mana when receiving support.
Whakatū Takatāpui panel:
Join six takatāpui people living in Te Tau ihu, discussing their experiences of being takatāpui in Aotearoa and Te Tau ihu. They will also take time to answer questions from attendees.
