Trans Perspectives on Feminism @VUWWC

Victoria University of Wellington Women's Collective is holding a free event for Women's Week, and GMA will be giving a 60 minute lecture "Trans Perspectives on Feminism". Nau mai haere mai, everyone is welcome.

Volunteers Needed in Wellington

We're starting up our monthly socials again soon, and we would love to have more volunteers to help run them!

Be An Ally 101

In our "Be an Ally 101" we discuss how common trans people are, what their lives are like, how to support a trans person you know, how to support trans rights, and where to find out more. Article, video, and booklet format.

Autistic Transgender People

While transgender people make up about 1% of the general population, they make up at least 10% of the autistic population. Some studies suggest 13% or higher. Find out more about autistic people's experiences here.

Detransition or Retransition Support

A small number of people "come out" as transgender, and later realise they aren't, or decide that the safety risks for them are too high. They may decide to outwardly take on a cisgender identity while inwardly maintaining a transgender identity ("go back into the closet"), or they may have a change of gender identity - affirming that a cisgender identity is the one that feels best for them.

Gender Minorities Aotearoa Feedback

Gender Minorities Aotearoa welcomes your feedback on our organisation and services. Your feedback will be used to help GMA to improve our services and give you a better experience.

Signs of an Unhealthy Relationship Dynamic

Sometimes our relationships have dynamics which are unhealthy, harmful, or even abusive. This article talks about signs that something may not be working, identifying unhealthy dynamics in a relationship, and dealing with common scenarios for trans people. It touches on working through some issues, or leaving a relationship which may be difficult or dangerous to leave.

Ending an Abusive Relationship

If a relationship is unhealthy or abusive, it may be very difficult to end it amicably. Your partner may not accept that you want to end the relationship: they may try to make you feel guilty, afraid to leave, or worried that they will not cope. They may even threaten to hurt you, your loved ones, or themself. Even if they do not accept that the relationship is ending, you do not have to stay in the relationship.
