This is our new information site for New Zealand's gay organisations and gay-friendly services. We also include articles of particular interest to people newly exploring their sexuality.
Since Gay Line Wellington started in the year 2000 we have been providing information about being gay in Wellington that includes listings of gay and gay friendly organisations in Wellington and the surrounding provinces of New Zealand, what's on specially for GLBTI people in and around Wellington and articles of special interest to GLBTI people generally. We have also been working closely with the Rule Foundation to provide financial support for some Wellington GLBTI organisations.
Time moves on and Gay Line has decided that it is time to close down. Gay Line’s primary activity is the operation of the Gay Line website: http://www.gayline.org.nz/ The main function of the website has been to list gay and gay friendly organisations and businesses throughout New Zealand as a source of information for anyone who has an interest in what being gay in New Zealand is about. There are also many articles primarily aimed at promoting a healthy gay life style.
Reflections from the past
This paper on the Dads’ group is based on an earlier draft, which Grant Jones circulated to the group by email February 2004. Three years later, and with some minor additions he sent the revised paper again to the group. In December 2016 Grant updated and revised the paper.
Exercising when you're sick? Go for it, and you might make yourself feel much better, writes GayNZ.com's fitness guru Julz Darroch.
A new collection has been published to honour the memory and raise awareness about a man who could be considered New Zealand's own Oscar Wilde, James Courage, our very own gay, but sidelined, literary icon.
The first New Zealander to have full gender reassignment surgery and have the sex on her birth certificate changed has told her compelling life story in a book co-written by Ali Mau.
Charles Prout talks about advocacy and activism and getting involved in this interview from GayNZ.com
It has been brought to my attention recently that not everyone who chooses to exercise does so purely for pain, sweat and vanity. Apparently there is this thing called enjoyment, which is so important to some that they will only exercise if they enjoy it- go figure!
We are creating a shared directory for New Zealand’s GLBTI communities. Donations help us to do that and are gratefully received through Give a Little.
