Some amazing volunteers have organised an exciting trans history quiz on 16 March 2023, and they’re donating the proceeds to GMA. Read on to find out more!
If you want to learn more about Aotearoa’s incredible trans histories in a fun way, then this is the event for you!
From Rūrangi to Carmen Rupe and beyond – Aotearoa has so many wonderful trans histories, and yet we hardly ever get to hear about them! This quiz is geared towards those who haven’t had access to learning about our trans pasts before, so don’t feel any pressure to be schooled up – simply come along, have some fun, and hopefully learn a cool trans history fact or two!
When and where
Thursday 16 March
6pm to 8pm
Tararua tramping club – 4 Moncrieff Street, Mt Victoria, Wellington, New Zealand.
How it works
Entry fee is donation (per person, not team) of minimum gold coin – all money going to the incredible Gender Minorities Aotearoa. Can pay with cash or via bank transfer.
Teams should consist of 4-6 people. Don’t have teammates? No worries! Rock on up and we’ll sort you out.
A small prize will be up for grabs for the winning team!
Tararua Tramping Club is wheelchair accessible. Please consider our communities and wear a mask if you are able to, and stay home if you are feeling unwell.
This event is part of Wellington Pride Festival 2023, following with the theme ‘Ka Mua Ka Muri – Walk backwards into the future with your eyes fixed on the past.’
Trans people are important – trans histories are important – we would not be here today without our trans elders, and through honoring their histories and struggles we remind ourselves that change is always possible.
We are incredibly grateful to Rainbow Wellington for providing so much support to this event, without them it would not be possible!!
