Hot Dog Fund Raising@ Vinegar Hill

Hot Dog Fund Raising@ Vinegar Hill

Vinegar Hill rainbow camp was beautiful! We sold hot dogs, vegetarian nachos, ice blocks, and soft drinks, and we raised $409 (before costs) – a wonderful maiden voyage for the fund raising hot dog trailer! We had an awesome time together having fun, meeting rainbow folks and their whaanau from all over Aotearoa, and hearing about the cool things that others are doing, as well as sharing our whakaaro.
Big thanks to everyone who donated to the trailer fix up fund, helped to clean and paint, picked up fridges, worked out gas bottles, camped at the hill and cooked in the trailer, and of course to everyone who brought he kai and drinks!

We’re looking forward to feeding folks at festivals over the summer – Out in the Park and the Aro Valley Fair are booked in, and others will be on the cards too. If you’re keen to volunteer with Aunty Dana’s op shop, the hot dog stand, or The Gender Centre in 2019, feel free to contact us on – there’s always plenty of work to be done and lots of fun along the way!
Transgender Awareness Week 2018

Transgender Awareness Week 2018

Transgender Awareness Week  runs from November 12th – 20th, it’s purpose is to raise awareness about trans people, including intersex and non-binary people, our lives, our humanity, our struggles, and our joys. It ends with TDoR, Transgender Day of Remembrance, on November 20th – a day to remember the trans people around the world who have been lost to  murder. It is also a day to affirm our resolution to fight for the living, and to end all stigma, discrimination, and violence against trans people.

This Transgender Awareness Week, we have a simple message for Aotearoa New Zealand: Trans people exist, and that’s a positive thing.

Thanks to our friends at RainbowYOUTH, OUTLineNZ, and Like Minds, Like Mine, our transgender diversity posters are up in Whangarei, Auckland, Tauranga, Rotorua, Wellington, Christchurch, and Dunedin this week.

Invercargill and Hamilton can also expect to see them on November 18th.

Big shout out to trans folks in smaller cities, towns, and rural areas – let’s work together to make sure every local community embraces us fully and gives us the opportunities, respect, and love we deserve.
