Rainbow housing hui

January 15 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm


2-4pm on Saturday 15 January at St Peter’s hall

Are you part of the Rainbow/Queer/Takatapui communities?
Do you live in Kapiti or want to?
We want to hear from you!
Kapiti Coast District Council (KCDC) is running a series of hui to find out what the housing issues are for a range of communities in Kapiti.
They approached us here at Paekākāriki Pride to get the word out to our Rainbow communities and they would love to meet with you over a kai and cuppa to korero.
Information from the hui will feed into a plan or strategy to address the issues for our communities.
We know it can be really tough when you’re looking for a rental property and you don’t know if you should come out because you don’t know if the landlord is homophobic, biphobic or transphobic.
We know a lot of us have fur kids and this can be a huge barrier to finding a house.
Some of our trans, non-binary and gender diverse whanau have been rejected by their families and can find themselves homeless or sleeping rough.
In general, our community earns less than the general population so buying a house (especially in Kapiti) is an impossible dream for us.
What are some of the other issues that affect us as queer folks?
Come share your ideas, experiences and thoughts with us.
Note: This is a vaxxed event so please bring your vaccination pass. If you don’t have one, we still want to hear from you in a questionnaire that you can send to KCDC. More details to follow.
