The Lesbian and Gay Archives of New Zealand (LAGANZ) Trust was formed in 1992. Its Board of Trustees own, on behalf of the lesbian and gay communities, the growing number of collections which now make up the Archives.

The trust has a number of objects that define its purpose and activities.

The initial core of the collections goes back to an initiative of the National Gay Rights Coalition in 1977. It developed into a research library and archives known as the Lesbian and Gay Rights Resource Centre which was placed in the care of a trust in 1984.

In 1988, to ensure the collections a secure home, the trustees made an agreement with the Alexander Turnbull Library in Wellington for their permanent accommodation. The collections remain under the ownership of the Trust, and are open to researchers on the same basis as other research heritage collections. This agreement secures their safe storage and assures that access to them is supervised.

Currently the collection attracts up to 150 visitors a year.

Lesbian Overland and Cafe Club

The Lesbian Overland and Cafe Club is the social walking group for vaguely active lesbians and slightly fitter women. Not a tramping group, but there is one "club" rule: walk some before retiring to a café. And we're not a club as such... just whoever turns up on the day.

  • We assemble outside the front of the Wellington Railway Station - at 10.00am [or 9am or ...] - check the trip instructions
  • Please bring lunch, water and snacks. Wear or carry parka, day pack, shorts or walking long trousers, sneakers or tramping boots, sunblock and hat or gloves and spare jersey ... depending on the season. Your leader will have a small first aid pack.

Out in the Park is Wellington‘s famous queer fair. It’s an annual event that has been running since 1986.

The Fair wanted moved to Waitangi Park in 2015, but the wind didn't let that happen. As a short-term solution we teamed up with CubaDupa and will be at carpark on the corner of Ghuznee and Leeds Streets.

Out in the Park features normally more than 60 stalls selling anything from clothing to jewelry to crafts to books to toys to electronics, and everything inbetween. You can also pick up a bite to eat with scrumptious food available, delicious drinks, and much more.

It's famous for its free entertainment, with talented local singers, drag queens and kings, comedians, and circus performers on stage for your enjoyment.

Historically the Gay and Lesbian Fair was set up to raise awareness about homosexuality and to build support for Homosexual Law Reform, which was then before the New Zealand Parliament. Today we support all communities to come together and celebrate our diversity being visible in a fun, friendly, and open manner – it’s still important.


You do not have to be in a crisis situation to call them. All sorts of people call OUTLineNZ for all sorts of reasons – loneliness and isolation, sexuality and gender idenitity, sexual health, relationships and meeting people, STIs and HIV, legal and ethical issues, and many more.

This helpline is staffed by self-accepting GLBTTFIQQ people who have trained to help others over the phone in issues around sexual identity.

From the group’s inception in 1972 its main focus has been the telephone help line, originally Gayline, but since 1982 has been Gay/Lesbian Line, and is now known as OUTLine.

At present the organisation has over 40 telephone volunteers who have all had good basic training and have undertaken ongoing training and supervision. All staff – voluntary or paid – are GLBTTFIQQ accepting.

They are always looking for new members, so go to the Get Involved page to find out how you can help and give back to the community.

Phone: 0800-OUTLINE (6885463) is an online community resource of over 500 audio interviews and event recordings documenting rainbow culture in Aotearoa New Zealand. Subjects range from coming out to transitioning; from remembering what it was like to grow up in the 1950s to being at school in a Queer Straight Alliance today.

The website was established in 2009 and has three main purposes: 

  • To document rainbow lives in Aotearoa New Zealand through audio interviews and event recordings.
  • To make those recordings easily accessible to the public.
  • To help preserve rainbow heritage by making the collection available to archives in the future.

Some of our guiding principles include creating and maintaining:

  • A first-hand/eyewitness community resource that is available to as many people as possible.
  • A community resource that is inclusive and promotes the health and betterment of all rainbow people; and in turn, the enrichment of the wider society.
  • A community resource that is not-for-profit.

Queer Avengers

The Queer Avengers challenge gender and sexuality oppression in Aotearoa New Zealand and speak out in solidarity on oppression anywhere.

They are a activist group fighting all forms of queerphobia, in Wellington and further afield. They grew out of the Queer the Night march and are (or will be) campaigning on issues relating to queer youth in schools, gender diversity and queer seniors.

They meet every Thursday and like rainbow balaclavas and unicorns. Everyone is welcome to go along and check out their meetings.

They know, have seen, and experienced the hurt and the loss caused by homophobia, biphobia and transphobia. They are motivated by sadness, by anger and by love. They refuse to rely on the broken logic of this broken system to fight against it. 

They stand in solidarity with those fighting other forms of oppression. They also acknowledge that there are many amongst us who are oppressed in multiple ways, and they value diversity. They're not just fighting for physical safety and legal equality. We are fighting for liberation, for empowerment, for visibility and respect of us as we are, as we may be, as we want to be. Our identities are positive, not some misfortune to be tolerated.

Queer Tango Wellington

Queer Tango Wellington is a group that’s relatively new to the Wellington tango scene. Duro y Vio were our fairy godparents but sadly they left us on 22 November 2009 for the dancing magic of Buenos Aires.

Find intimate silence and learn to listen with your body.  Argentine Tango is an improvised dance, requiring intense concentration on the connection between partners. Mastery of the capacity to create physical connection imparts serenity, grounding, and – with remarkable frequency –  elation. Tango will also improve your balance, assertiveness, and sensitivity. And it’s sexy…

You do not need to bring a partner, previous dance experience, or “rhythm”. We encourage gender complexity and exploration. Everyone is welcome! Tango has no age limit.

Come join us on Mondays from 7-9pm. When classes are running they are from 7-8pm and entry is $15, with a free practica from 8-9pm. On nights there is no class we run a lovely long practica from 7-9pm and entry is $5. Classes and practica are all held @ the Crossways  Community Centre in Mount Victoria, Wellington, New Zealand.

Queers gone Kiwi

Queers Gone Kiwi is New Zealand's mostly social group for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Immigrants.

Just turn up or email them if you haven't been before or it has been a while and you would like to be introduced to the group. QGC also organise other events from time to time - theatre trips, Easter camp.

Rainbow TEAM Wellington

The goal of Rainbow Team Wellington (RTW) is to unite and support Wellington’s LGBTI Sport and Recreation Clubs. The member clubs are a primarily place where LGBTI people come together through their enjoyment of their sports and cultural activities.  They can be the place where a person first comes out, or first meets a larger group of LGBTI people, and our clubs are spaces where we grow our community.  RTW is not a campaigning, political, welfare or fundraising organisation – this work is being done by other groups.

The RTW Forum is the group of all clubs and their members – and all of Wellington’s LGBTI Sport and Recreation clubs are welcome to join us.   We meet from time to time to get to know each other, to share information, to grow our memberships, and to make plans.  

The RTW Committee is a group of members nominated by the Forum. There are two conveners.   The committee’s role is to coordinate our information sharing, event planning and to maintain the RTW website.

Rainbow Tick

The Rainbow Tick is a quality improvement cycle designed to make an organisation a safe, welcoming and inclusive place for people of diverse gender identity and sexual orientation.

They audit and evaluate your progress over time:

Their audits sensitively evaluate your organisation’s level of LGBTTI inclusion in these five areas:

  • Policy
  • Staff Training
  • Staff Engagement and Organisational Support
  • External Engagement
  • Monitoring

Where there are deficiencies we make evidence-based recommendations for change.

They provide you with user-friendly resources and support during the implementation of any required change.

A training package is customised to suit your organisation.

Once the benchmarks are met you are awarded the Rainbow Tick and this can be displayed and used in any job advertising or during any organisational or business promotions.

To keep your Rainbow Tick certification valid they need to carry out an annual check which will help you maintain the Rainbow Tick standards.

To get the conversation going they suggest you go to Are You Diversity Inclusive? and see how your organisation stacks up.

Phone: 027 839 7752

A bunch of dedicated trained queer facilitators help run the group. School’s Out is here for you.

They won’t tell anyone you came along and they won’t share your secrets with anyone else.

School’s Out is about young people like yourself supporting each other and having a good time.

If you're a straight person who wants to come along to support your queer friends, they're happy to have you too. They're a really welcoming group. It’s heaps of fun and you’ll make lots of wonderful new friends.

Tapatoru is a word from our Maori language in Aotearoa (New Zealand) that means 'Triangle'.The triangle has many different meanings for many communities and cultures. For us here in New Zealand, the triangle is a prominent symbol within our Maori culture. The triangle is also a shape that canbe interpreted at many different levels and has many positive andstrong aspects that we can relate to, that has inspired and motivated us to set ourselves up under the name Tapatoru.

Tapatoru is based in Wellington, which is the capital city of New Zealand. Historically, this vibrant and close-knit city has become home to many of our Maori trans people and today we celebrate a community who feel somewhat established and embraced by its city.

The trans community is filled with diversity at every degree and we have trans support groups locally and nationally who cater for some trans people throughout this diverse continuum. Tapatoru is aware that not everyone is comfortably supported which has prompted the launch of this group who affiliate and embrace their Maori trans whanau who are trans and living in Wellington.

Tranzform is a support group for trans* youth, their friends and supporters. We have fortnightly meetings in central wellington for discussions, information, food and frivolity. Whether you’ve already gone through a gender transition, you’re questioning who you are, or feel like you just don’t fit into male or female, you’re welcome in our group. Tranzform is a place where you can let your glorious self out, explore your gender with youth in the same boat, and be safe doing so. 
*trans. Being trans is about gender. If you don’t fit societies rules about what kind of gender is acceptable, then you may fit under the trans umbrella. It’s separate from your sexuality (who you’re attracted to). Your gender is about you, your body, how you’re seen by others, and how you feel inside your head. There are countless words in many different languages and cultures to describe different genders. For more information on transgender rights in New Zealand, some inspiring personal stories, and a great list of what being “trans” might mean, you can go to “To Be Who I Am”. If you don’t fit into these categories or prefer not to have a label for your gender, that’s cool too, you are welcome at Tranzform.

Vinegar Hill Gay Camping

Since 1977, Vinegar Hill has been a popular camping spot for Gay and Lesbian people and their families over Christmas and the New Year holiday period in the height of summer. Much of the following information comes from personal knowledge of those who have attended the camp. 

The first time gay men camped at Vinegar Hill was shortly after New Year in January 1977. This consisted of six men, among whom were Kevin and Pearl (Peter) and Owen, from the Manawatu and Hawkes Bay regions and Tom Fitzgerald from Silverstream Upper Hutt.

It grew from there, and by the early 1980s had developed a particular culture. The first queen was appointed in 1985, for the 1986 camp. This was Bill Armstrong, who was presented with the award by Mal Vaughan.

Initially, the idea of "Queen of Vinegar Hill" was based on a comedic idea of beauty queens, but this later developed into an idea of appointed royalty.

As a result, the initial names engraved on the trophy presented each year are the drag names of the people appointed to the role of queen
