Takatāpui

Takatāpui (also spelt takataapui) is the Māori word meaning a partner of the same sex.

In modern terminology, a person identifying as takatāpui is a Māori person who is gay, lesbian or bisexual, or transgender or transsexual.

The term is not new, but the application of it is very recent. In the 1980s, there was a desire for a label to describe an individual that is both Māori and non-heterosexual. Derivatives of takatāpui include takatāpui kaharua for bisexual, takatāpui wahine for lesbian and takatāpui wahine ki tāne or takatāpui tāne ki wahine for transmen or transwomen.

Last week we had an amazing turn out at our weekly volunteer sessions in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch. We'd love to do even better this week!

This week our volunteers are meeting in NZAF National Office (Auckland) and NZAF South/Te Toka (Christchurch) on Wednesday between 5.00pm and 7.30pm, and the NZAF Āwhina Centre (Wellington) on Friday afternoon.

 

If you're keen to come along, please get it contact with us ( http://www.nzaf.org.nz/get-involved/item/volunteer/), or alternatively just turn up. Bring your mates too, if they're keen!  The more, the merrier.

Volunteering can be so rewarding and satisfying knowing that you are helping the community you live in, maybe heterosexuals who are glbt-friendly will join in as well if they aren't already...
