30 Queer Lives: Conversations with LGBTQIA+ New Zealanders (Paperback)
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.
