FAFSSWAG ARTS COLLECTIVE was invited to perform at the Auckland War Memorial Museum for the Auckland Pride Festival 2018.
“I am a transsexual. My achievement in local government [was] historic internationally as the world’s first transsexual to have been elected as a mayor.”
Georgina Beyer uttered these words as part of her valedictory speech in Parliament more than ten years ago, recognising not just her own milestones but those who had paved the way for her. How have trans identities progressed since then?
This Valentine’s Day, in collaboration with the Auckland Pride Festival, we’re celebrating the diversity of trans and non-binary experiences. This LATE: Explicit Inclusion Identity looks at their journey towards equal human rights and inclusion in Aotearoa New Zealand.
