Description

Identity, understanding, and celebration through the stories of thirty remarkable New Zealanders. Soldiers, politicians, Olympians, doctors, musicians, academics, businesspeople, farmers, writers, and fa‘afafine . . . the thirty LGBTQIA+ New Zealanders in this book are remarkable individuals. They each speak with candour and honesty about their challenges and successes, and together they show how LGBTQIA+ people strengthen the rich culture of Aotearoa. From the famous—Grant Robertson, Gareth Farr, Chlöe Swarbrick—to the less well known, these stories encourage empathy and understanding, challenge stereotypes, and offer courage and hope. Matt McEvoy completed a Bachelor of Music degree between Auckland and Otago Universities. He spreads his time between teaching piano, managing property interests, accepting the occasional local technology contract, and writing, with a particular interest in social history and the diverse stories of extraordinary people who are seldom given a voice in New Zealand culture. His first book, The Grey Lynn Book, was published in 2018. An important contribution to the social history of Aotearoa New Zealand 6 Introduction 11 Grant Robertson 21 Takunda Muzondiwa 31 Leilani Tominiko 39 Nathan Joe 49 Eliana Rubashkyn 57 Scott Mathieson 67 Henrietta Bollinger 75 Andy Davies 87 Sawyer Hawker 97 James Dobson 107 Taupuruariki ‘Ariki’ Brightwell 121 Jonny Rudduck 135 Chlöe Swarbrick 145 David Sar Shalom Abadi 157 Sarah Bickerton 165 Peter Macky 179 Carole Beu 191 Gareth Farr 199 Shaneel Shavneel Lal 209 Tom Sainsbury 217 Six 231 Robbie Manson 241 Charlotte Goodyear 251 Meagan Goodman 261 Edward Cowley 271 Ross and John Palethorpe 285 Ramon Te Wake 295 Victor Rodger 303 Loughlan Prior 313 Ann Shelton 326 Further reading 327 About the author
