Human Rights Issues for Gender and Sexual Minorities

New Zealand Human Rights Commission

Tuesday 13 February, 6.45pm

Potters Park Events Centre  164 Balmoral Road, Mt Eden
Free Event

The Human Rights Commission is hosting a series of open forum consultations across Aotearoa for people with diverse or minority sexual orientations, gender identities, and sex characteristics.

We know that the human rights issues of healthcare, employment, education, housing, data collection and violence affect our Rainbow communities. We want to hear from you about your experience with these and other issues. We also want to hear about your proposed solutions and recommendations.

An opportunity to speak and to listen, this hui will be facilitated by the Commission’s trans and takatāpui staff. The information we gather about your priority human rights issues will form the basis of our submissions to the United Nations. We want to get as much data from as many people as possible to help us improve the current human rights landscape for gender and sexual minorities.

The Human Rights Commission encourages you to tell the United Nations what you think about the issues affecting you and your communities. This two-hour workshop will provide you with tools and information to enable you to participate in the United Nations process through the upcoming reviews in 2018.

Please join us at this physically accessible venue (including free parking and accessible, gender-neutral bathrooms) for discussion and light vegetarian/vegan kai.


Accessible parking, toilets and seating available – hearing loop available
