Event description

Description

Tīwhanawhana warmly invites takatāpui, LGBTIQ+ and rainbow identifying people from around the wider Te Whanganui-a-Tara (Wellington) region to gather for a community hui in the new year.

Building on the rich, longstanding work in all of our communities, Whakarongo: Pride, ILGA World and beyond is an opportunity to come together, share kōrero, listen to each other on where we are all at, and where we would like to be.

This hui is being held in the spirit of Rongo, the Māori atua of peace. To whakarongo is to be like that of Rongo, and we do so through listening. While our communities are diverse in experience and views, there is much we have in common. This is a chance to deeply listen to others, so we can further understand different perspectives, as we continue to fight for a better world. We ask that those who attend, do so within this spirit.

Whakarongo: Pride, ILGA World and beyond has been inspired by the passionate discussion on Pride around the country, but it is part of a bigger conversation. This upcoming March, our city will be hosting visitors from around the world for the International Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual Trans and Intersex Association (ILGA) World Conference. This is the first time ILGA World will reach our shores. It will be an incredible opportunity to welcome LGBTIQ+ people from abroad, learn together and show the uniqueness of our local communities. We will provide an update and discuss how you can be involved - as well as provide an opportunity to learn a brand new waiata written for this upcoming event.
