An overview of queer
Aotearoa New Zealand is a liberal nation. We were the first country to give all women the vote, and we have had openly lesbian, gay and transgender members of parliament. We’ve recognised same-sex civil unions since 2005 and made same-sex marriage legal in 2013. Our Human Rights Act means people cannot be discriminated against on the basis of their gender or sexuality. This includes allowing people to use the toilet that matches their gender identity, and many businesses and public places have unisex or gender-neutral facilities. Our country is nuclear free, and we have a reputation for being clean and green. These factors together with our beautiful landscapes, unique wildlife and bountiful seas make New Zealand a ‘must do’ destination.
Look out for the summer Pride festivals in most cities, and events such as the AIDS Foundation’s Big Gay Out early in the year.
Your LGBTQ+ Kiwi experience awaits you.
